Growing up Otto was always interested in strange things compared to other kids his age. At the age of 12 he took a particular liking to politics and dedicated much of his time learning as much as possible. This interest caused him to take a natural liking to debate, this lead him to join the debate team in high school and eventually to see a future in law for himself. After graduating high school he attended the University of Michigan where he graduated with a major in Political Science and a minor in Economics. After graduating he took the LSAT in hopes of getting into Yale Law School. Some time after he learned of his acceptance into the law school he decided to take a cruise to celebrate. This cruise unfortunately struck a rock off of the coast of Chernarus, forcing him to board one of the lifeboats and go to shore. He has been surviving in this country ever since.
