Regina Tiedemann seems wounded and stern; it's no wonder, considering what she's been through. As a teen, she's a pale, shy outsider and frequently gets teased by other students. She suffers under her domineering mother Claudia. As an adult, she opens the Waldhotel Winden, but guests stop coming in autumn 2019, after reports of the missing children.
Enemies for life
Regina has a terrible relationship with Ulrich and Katharina Nielsen. The couple harass her as a teenager and even tie her to a tree in the forest at one point. Katharina later incorrectly believes Regina is behind the rape allegations made against Ulrich. She thinks Regina told her grandfather policeman Egon Tiedemann the lie in revenge and threatens her.
Seemingly out of nowhere, a young man appears with a gun and drives Katharina away. It is Aleksander, who's just arrived in Winden and later becomes Regina's husband.
