Kurt Bunker, is a Deputy for the Banshee County Sheriff Department (BSD). He has previous experience as a Deputy, working for the Dade County Sheriff, but is also a former skinhead. His application for the BSD deputy vacancy (created by the death of Emmett) was initially rejected with the hiring of Billy Raven. Yet he is hired by Lucas Hood after taking initiative at the CADI during Chayton's siege, which lead to the death of Deputy Siobhan Kelly and therefore creating another vacancy in the department.

Early Life Edit

Kurt Bunker grew up in an abusive household to a father who beat him regularly. In addition to this, he had a stutter, so he was also ostracised by his peers. A young man in his neighbourhood, known only by the name of "Tank" took pity on young Kurt, bought him soda and talked to him about how he too can change things.

One day, when Kurt's father gave his son a black eye, Tank assaulted Kurt's father, claiming "Your boy is one of ours now". Following this altercation, Kurt joined the Nazi movement Tank was a member of.

After an unspecified amount of time, Bunker left the Nazi scene behind and regrets having shared its ideology. However, he still carries his tattoos of iconic Nazi imagery with him. He is having them removed, but the process is taking longer than anticipated.

When confronted with how the story of his early life and recruitment into the racist organisation he was a member of is no excuse, Bunker replies with "I know".
