Noah's Plots

Noah is a pastor of Saint Christopher church in the years 1953 and 1986. Plus, he is also the one who is behind the abduction of the town’s children.

He abducts children with the help of Helge Doppler to use them on the time-travel experiments he conducts on the chair in a bunker. In that process, Noah and Helge kidnap Mads Nielsen in 1986, and Erik Obendorf and Yasin Friese in 2019.

However, Noah fails his experiment which results in the death of those abducted children in process of time-travel via the chair in the bunker. The failed experiment transports Mads Nielsen's body to the year 2019 and Erik Obendorf and Yasin Friese's bodies to the year 1953.

Besides that, Noah also constructs the time travel passage in the year 1921 inside the Winden caves. He constructs the passage with his father Bartosz on the instructions of Adam. But on a surprising turn of events, Noah also murders his father Bartosz when he learns that Bartosz had lost his faith in Adam’s prophecy.

After killing his father, the teenage Noah meets his mysterious future-self Noah, who sends him to the year 2020 on the day of the apocalypse. There, the rookie meets Elisabeth Doppler and her father Peter Doppler for the first time.

Later, when Peter gets killed by a thief, teenage Noah gives shelter to Elisabeth and tells her about the prophecy of the future paradise. The two eventually get married after living together for decades. Together, they give birth to a daughter named Charlotte.

In brief, Noah manipulates people to complete his purpose of elevating humanity by controlling time travel. He believes time-travel would re-arrange events and undo the pre-determined cycle of suffering. Hence, he makes an experimental time-travel chair and abducts children which makes him a shady villain of the show.

Why Lisa Vicari Favourites Noah?

During the video interview with Egypt’s NileFM, Lisa Vicari disclosed that her all-time favorite character from the Dark series was Noah. Elaborating her answer, she said that the mysterious element and different layers of Noah’s character make him her favorite.

There are so many amazing characters in the show. But one of my all-time favorite characters is always Noah because he is so mysterious and he has so many different layers in his character.

Further, the actress, who also plays a prominent role in the series Dark, told that Noah’s character unfolded in a different angle altogether in the third season. And that different angle made his character even more complex, yet, entertaining to watch.
