Early life Edit
Johann Strauss possessed one of the most gifted minds of his age. By the time he was 4 years old, Strauss could perform complex trigonometry equations in his head. At the age of 8 he was fluent in six languages and could recite all of Shakespeare's works from memory.
Strogg research Edit
Strauss was part of the research team that discovered how the Strogg used black holes to travel across the vast distances of space. He held a Ph.D. in advanced computer science and in biotechnology and was one of eight people fluent in the Strogg language. In keeping with his genius status, Strauss also had a tremendous ego and could be extremely brash. He would have remained in research were it not for a run-in with General Nathaniel Hastings. Strauss insulted the general so badly that he found himself on the front lines a week after the argument.
Stroggos Campaign Edit
While in the field, Strauss found he excelled in working with Strogg technology. Because of his talents, he was assigned to Rhino Squad. They then received missions deep in enemy territory that required interaction with Strogg security and computer systems.
