Herman was born in Townville and attended Benjamin Franklin School, where he became really popular due to the stereotype of "blonde and blue-eyed guys" being handomse, which made him think very highly of himself and get a precious self-esteem. After noticing beauty was not enough to live he established his own candy shop in the shopping mall Newville I.
Role in cases
- The Corpse Which Smelled Right, Case #14 in Townville:
The police went to Newville I to arrest Doodley, a thief which had recently come to fame in Townville. Besides the thief, they also found a dead body in the perfume shop. They looked for Herman to interrogate him as a suspect since they knew that his candy shop was one of the last ones to close but they later identified the victim as Herman himself. The suspects had really varying opinions on Herman and practically nobody wanted to talk about the case so the investigation was difficult, but in the end they managed to arrest Valerie Bade from the perfume shop for having killed Herman.
Herman had told his friend Chandler Beemie that he was in love with Valerie but that night he met her at the mall and tried to rape her. Valerie was already afraid of him because he had flirted with her and stalked her a few times, so she had her cash register nearby to knock Herman out in case something bad happened. Unfortunately, he tried to rape her so she hit him in the head though stronger than necessary; Herman ended up dying instead of just losing consciousness. Judge Gonzalez sentenced Valerie to 10 years and 6 months in jail with parole in 5 years.
