Sdt. Alex Noyer is a supporting character in Amnesia: The Bunker. He was a French soldier stationed along the Western Front of the First World War.[1]

History[]

Early life[]

Alex Noyer was likely born somewhere in France.[1] He was presumably conscripted for the war as a soldier in the French Army and sent to the front to help repel the advance of the German army. He most likely held the rank of "Soldat," which was equivalent to private. At some point in time, he and his unit were stationed at or transferred to the bunker.

Events preceding Amnesia: The Bunker[]

A Pagan Hell[]

On April 30th, Noyer wrote in his diary that the engineers informed him that the high command ordered them to open up a set of Roman tunnels near the bunker.[4] Noyer was excited to see the tunnels for himself due to his interest in topics of antiquity.[4]

On the 9th of May, Noyer received an unexpected gift from the officers: ancient Latin texts from the tunnels.[5] He was worried that the texts would be damaged or even destroyed in the bunker, but was still curious.[5]

Two days later, Noyer’s friend Akerman died of his wounds, and to distract himself, he pored through the texts, only to discover that they were not Roman in origin.[6] As while the language was Latin, it described things not present in Roman culture, things about esoteric religion and dark superstition.[6]

On May 13th, Noyer progressed in his translation, and confirmed that the texts were of a religious nature, discovering that the ancients held sadistic bacchanals, blood orgies, and fights within the tunnels’ confines.[7] They believed there was a dark Other World, in which horrible monsters roamed and people were tortured endlessly.[7] They also believed that in this world, a select few had achieved immortality with some substance, which they sought.[7]

The next day, once Noyer learned that Sdt. LaRue had seen things in the tunnels very similar to what happened in the texts, he decided that he had to warn the men about the tunnels.[8]

A Mad Classicist[]

Noyer caused such a stir among the ranks that by the next day, Sgt. Joubert sent a missive to Sgt. Reynard, asking him to put Noyer under surveillance.[2] Three days later, Reynard reported to the bunker's commanding officer, Comdt. Fournier, as well as Major Blanchet, that Noyer’s antics were no longer tolerable.[9] Reynard then had him locked up in Maj. Sgt. Delpy’s cells for two days as a punishment.[9][10][11]

After Noyer was released, he learned that all the other men were hearing and dreaming strange things, with no one daring to inform the officers, not even Sgt. Joubert.[11] Five days later, Noyer decided to enter the tunnels himself to try and end the nightmares.[12] However, he was pulled out of the tunnels hours later, screaming himself hoarse.[3]

Events of Amnesia: The Bunker[]

Noyer’s fate is unknown. It is possible he was transferred or arrested, as he was notably not even referenced by any of the officers investigating the mutiny, as he would have been the prime suspect, and he was not part of the final roundup or even was said to be missing. It is possible that, as he was; transferred out of the bunker, kept in the sickroom to recover, or the cells as punishment, he would not have been able to join the mutineers and thus could be immediately disqualified by the officers. This could mean that he was killed when the Beast began its rampage, or that he was not even in the bunker at the time.

Description[]

Personality[]

Alex Noyer was a very curious and erudite man with a strong interest in ancient civilizations and cultures. He also demonstrated resolution and courage in venturing into the Roman Tunnels himself to try to put an end to his brother-soldiers’ torment.
