Maximilian Herkel used to be a political activist in several white nationalist groups in eastern Germany. He strongly believes in the superiority of the aryan race and made the decision to travel to chernarus as soon as roumors about the outbreak spread. There he seeked to convert the infection to political propaganda, trying to prove that the outbreak was truly proof that the slavic race was inferior and thus fell victim to the outbreak. Since the situation substantially worsened during Max's stay in Chernarus, he was eventually was cut off of every source of civilization and started roaming the country, trying to survive and make up his mind. He came to the conclusion that from the ashes of Chernarus he had to forge a new totalitarian ethno state, that would preveil and withstand everything the apocalypse had to offer. He was uncertain how his beloved fatherland was doing but he swore that if he were to succeed with his plans, he would not only bring glory upon a newly reformed Germany and Chernarus, but a newly reformed world. But for now, he is uncertain wheter he will be successfull or not.
