|“||Dreyfus, what're you doing, man?||”|
— Werner to Dreyfus after he threatened to blow up the tower.
Werner was a character who appeared in Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.
Dawn of the Planet of the ApesEdit
Werner was a survivor of the Simian Flu Pandemic. He worked closely with the newly elected human leader Dreyfus whilst living in the ruins of the once great San Francisco. When the Ape Colony attacked San Francisco lead by the corrupt ape Koba, Werner did not participate in the battle. Instead, he was commissioned by Dreyfus to attempt to radio for help from other survivors, if their was any.
Just as Werner received a fraction of a response to his desperate message, some apes broke into the room he was hiding inside, forcing him to hide. Werner met up with Dreyfus and Finney, having escaped the apes. He tried to contact the military as the other two placed bombs all over the Ape-infested tower. When Malcolm appeared and threatened the three, Werner stepped away from the radio. When Dreyfus informed Malcolm that the military were already on their way, Werner confirmed this. However, he soon switched to Malcolm's side when Dreyfus threatened to set off the bombs. Werner asked what he was doing, and Dreyfus replied that he was saving the human race, before setting off the bombs. Dreyfus, Werner and Finney all perished in the explosion, while Malcolm managed to leap behind cover.
