Noah's voice and demeanor exude a calm confidence. He is an enigmatic man: In the 1950s, he's serving as Winden's pastor and goes by the name Hanno Tauber. In 1986, he visits Mikkel Nielsen in the hospital wearing religious robes, but oddly enough he hasn't aged at all.
Noah is not a man of God. He single-mindedly pursues his plans and will not tolerate any opposition. He is responsible for the deaths of Mads Nielsen, Erik Obendorf, and Yasin Friese. Together with his henchman Helge Doppler, he kidnapped the boys and used them to test his prototype time machine in the bunker in 1986.
The experiments fail, killing the missing children in the process. Noah dismisses Helge's doubts, telling him that they alone can save the world from evil. The deaths are unfortunate but necessary sacrifices. Noah and Helge also kidnap Jonas Kahnwald, locking him in the underground bunker, but he escapes into the future through a rift in time.
A new ally
In 2019, Noah manages to recruit Bartosz Tiedemann to his cause, claiming he is on the good side of a battle to control time travel. According to Noah, Bartosz' grandmother Claudia Tiedemann is on the dark side and the Stranger is nothing but a chess piece that she's using for her own benefit. Where does Bartosz fit into the wider picture?
