However, due to the station of the Opera singer, Tenma was removed from the Turkish man's operation to operate on the singer. As a result, the Turkish man died and the singer was saved. This lonely predicament made Tenma make up his mind to shun fame and do what a doctor really does: saving lives of people no matter what their station in life is.

Hugo Bernhardt shot her armed mother in front of her when he ran into a shanty in the Burmese jungle. The mother was aiming a gun, so he shot her before she could shoot him. Since he brought the girl to his house to live with him, she never laughed.

She is great at jump rope and using chopsticks. She likes birds and even tries to take and raise one, but Dr. Tenma tells her the baby will die if she does that.

When Tenma prepares a typical Japanese dish for Hugo and her, the girl finally laughs when she sees Hugo can't use chopsticks.

Mr. Boltzmann's secretary

Boltzmann secretary.png

He acted as the press secretary and representative for Congressman Joseph Boltzmann, who was a member of the German Parliament under suspicion for having killed callgirl Erika Lemser following a purported affair with her. Doggedly convinced of his boss' innocence and trusting him to no ends, he sharply criticized the BKA handling of the investigation, especially on the part of Inspector Lunge. He grew especially angered and deeply perturbed by Lunge's intimations that implicated him in trying to orchestrate a cover-up of his boss' affair. Driven to the brink of desperation by Lunge's zealous and obsessive behavior during the investigation, specifically his unfeeling insensitivity, he committed suicide, still apparently firmly convinced that his boss was absolutely innocent, per his suicide note.

As a result of losing a valuable reference and potential information source in the case, the BKA station chief and his subordinates removed Lunge from the case, ultimately leaving only the case of the Middle-Aged Couple Murders under his exclusive purview, which he pursued with increasingly marked conviction as he narrowed his sights on Kenzo Tenma, the chief suspect in the murders (actually being committed by Johan Liebert and his associates).

Old Couple (Ruhenheim)

Evil elders.jpg

An older couple was present in Ruhenheim, Germany prior to and during the massacre that ensued there, composing an ostensibly disabled and wheelchair-bound old man and his loving wife. They stayed at the Hotel Versteck on the pretext of vacationing, but they were really accomplices of Johan Liebert (possibly one of his foster families) who handed out firearms to residents of Ruhenheim, including the alcoholic Herbert Knaup and his son Wim, playing upon animosities among the villagers therein to incite violence. This helped catalyze the Ruhenheim Massacre orchestrated by Johan Liebert, with the implication that many of the firearms used against other residents were procured from the old couple.

When Wolfgang GrimmerInspector Lunge and Franz Bonaparta (the owner), who were also present at the hotel, realized the truth about the old couple, Grimmer furiously interrogated them, nearly flying into a homicidal rage under his "Magnificent Steiner" persona but managing to remain calm and present enough to refrain from this altered state. They provided information as to their role in the massacre, and their ties to the conspirators, including a man coordinating events from the nearby Hotel Bergbach. Thereafter, Grimmer carefully monitored them following Lunge's departure to confront the man, keeping the couple tied up and under guard alongside Bonaparta, Wim Knaup and the recently arrived Heinich couple, who brought along firearms they had purchased to help protect the group. In spite of this, the Hotel Versteck soon fell under attack by armed assailants that had taken positions in the opposite building, and the old couple was shot through the windows and subsequently perished.

He was formerly a member of a German U-Boat crew during WWII (which is implied to possibly be U-96, as featured in Das Boot).

The man tells Johan war stories and, per Johan's request, gives him his description of "ultimate fear." He also teaches Johan French and English, which, by the end of the thirteen-month period, he has mastered.

When Dr. Tenma is looking for clues about Johan, he calls him to his apartment and tells him about the boy. The man tells Tenma that "the thing he (Johan) was obsessed with was... fear. Ultimate fear."

Sunflowers Guy

Tumblr m9qfgh7JQD1rno0uio1 1280.jpg

Otto Heckel tells Dr. Tenma where the killer of one of the middle aged couples lives. Tenma goes to the apartment and sees the guy with a gun.

He tells Tenma about how he used to walk with his mother through a field of sunflowers, on summer days. He met "Erich" at a bar and they became friends after meeting several times. Erich invited him to his house, the house of the Councilman Springer. It seems they also became friends, but he couldn't forgive them when they got rid of the bed of sunflowers to make a curb. When he said it was a terrible thing to do, Erich agreed and told him Councilman Springer had a mistress: "I've stopped being a part of Councilman Springer's family. I am not a member of this family." He asked the man to eliminate the family.

He mentions it's a terrible thing to have a mistress. His mother was some man's mistress as well.

Before committing suicide, he realizes Erich was wrong about it being possible to "reset" your life. Also, he tells Tenma that Erich left him a message and tells Heckel where the safe is.

The Coming of "Thursday's Boy"

He is a member of a campus conspiracy theory/prophecy club that is well versed in legends and parables of the University of Munich, and, translating a poem by one of the university's founders, they anticipate the arrival of an apocalyptic figure named "Thursday's Boy" (derived from "Thor", or "thunder god"), who is foreseen to precipitate a destructive inferno in which books will be burned and, from thence, a period of worldwide sadness will commence, which will occur in the penultimate leap year before the onset of the twenty-first century (ie. 1996), foreshadowing the ensuing events to come. 

Later, Karl pays him to dance with Lotte in the party in his place. When he insists while in an alcohol-induced stupor and verges on harassment, Lotte's newfound friend Nina promptly beats him up using techniques from Aikido.

Another Boy

This boy almost died while playing Chicken against Joachim on the rooftop. He finds his mother really annoying, since she never lets him out of the house, and he can't watch TV or read comics either. Johan tells he will bring him a picture book. He loves to tell Johan how amazing he was while walking along the edge of the rooftop with his eyes closed without any fear at all. He is really thrilled about Johan's "game" of getting shot and killed by a Japanese man.
