    Genius Veteran

    Von Sturmer is one of Acer's Hueys' most valuable assets.  In his earlier days,
    Von was considered by most of his teammates as an ideal commander.  Though
    he never commanded more than one lance on the small unit, Von has enhanced
    his previous charisma and intelligence with a hard earned wisdom that could
    only be earned with time.  Both his genius IQ and unrivaled experience as a
    'mercenary on the run' seem to provide him with an almost sixth sense.  He has
    been able to keep his lance safe over the past years, never losing a pilot during
    a campaign.  This feat is almost unbelievable when considering the scout
    lance's hard-fought battles within that time period.
    Von's biggest loss over the years has been that of his girlfriend and lover, Ellie
    Tressle.  Shortly after the Hueys retreated from the public eye, Von and Ellie
    developed a relationship.  When things turned romantic, the couple eventually
    gave birth to a son, Decker Tressle.  Though they were never married officially,
    Von and Ellie were open with their relationship.  The two even lived together as
    a family after the birth of Decker.
    Disappearing during a typical weapons trade with members of the Explorer
    Corps, Ellie Tressle's fate remains a mystery to this day.  Despite his excellent
    abilities to derive information, Von refuses to come to any conclusions about
    her disappearance.  It is widely known among the Hueys that the retired
    commander and behind-the-scenes leader, the paranoid Ace Leghorn, believes
    Ellie was captured or killed by Draconis Combine bounty hunters.  Ace believes
    the Draconis Combine's government will always try to destroy the mercenary
    unit because of the Hueys' special knowledge about a Star League lostech
    Warship in the Draconis Combine's Labrea system.  Because this Warship has
    now come into possession by the Hueys themselves while united with Strider's
    Strikers, Von has doubts regarding Ace's assumption.
    Von is finally beginning to show his age, but he is still as strict as ever about
    his diet and exercise.  He continues to be a physically imposing figure.  On the
    battlefield, his reputation is even stronger.  Von has gradually become an expert
    with his Mech's primary weapon, the LRM 15.  Most of the Hueys joke that he
    can steer long range missiles with his mind alone.
    Von was shocked by the loss of his teammates while on Outreach.  He has
    realized how sacred his relationship with his son Decker is, and as a result he's
    now trying to spend more time with the troubled young man.  Von can see some
    of his own strengths in his son.  Unfortunately he feels Decker is weak in his
    outward displays of emotion regarding the loss of Ellie Tressle.
