Hugo was born in Sweden, but was sent to America to attend boarding school and eventually medical school. As a practicing surgeon for many years, he joined the UN after his wife left him, largely due to the death of their only son. Hugo ended up in Chenarus when it all went down, and was separated from his unit. Hugo is a fan of native american culture, hence the headgear. He is a scholar, preferring to run from conflict and treat people rather than fight or kill. Hugo is looking to meet up with any of the soldiers from his unit and establish a temporary medical center for all. Hugo also tends to indulge in his own supply of pain pills more than he should.
