Colonel Offer Hohlback was a soldier in the 701st Mobile Infantry. He was the commanding officer stationed at the outpost Hotel Delta 1-8-5 before being killed by his second-in-command Captain V.J. Dax.
Colonel Hohlback was described by Captain Dax as having been a poor commanding officer as several of his orders led to excessive casualties in their unit (explaining why Dax wore the dog tags of all the troopers loss during their time at the outpost). According to Dax, the Colonel was well-armed during the time of his murder by Captain Dax as he claimed only to have killed him with just his bare hands. Despite the Colonel's alleged lack of command sensibility, the other troopers in the unit apprehended and imprisoned Captain Dax within the outpost's furnace before abandoning their station eight days before the arrival of Bravo Six. The evacuation was apparently an instantaneous procedure as large amounts of equipment and supplies were left behind, including many of the Colonel's documents and personal belongings.
