Hermann is the main officer of the unit storming Litchfield after the riot. He is portrayed by Jason Altman and is one of the tertiary antagonists of Season 6.

Biography Edit

Season Five Edit

Herrmann is shown to be leading the storm as it begins. He makes his way to the chapel where he hits Gerrman. He claims that his actions were causing minimal violence despite Gerrman crying in pain.

Later, in the laundry, an inexperienced soldier named Natoli points his gun at Alana Dwight. Herrmann chastises him, as even though they are armed with pepper bullets, it is still possible to kill someone at close range. Herrmann advises Natoli that if he wants to hurt the inmates, to taser or mace them.

Later, when the unit is approaching the pool, Natoli fatally shoots Piscatella as Piscatella emerges through a doorway. The young soldier is horrified by what he's accidentally done, but Herrmann shows him no pity, calling him a "motherfucker".

Season Six Edit

It is revealed that Herrmann and the rest of the CERT team took Piscatella's body and shot him in the face with a real gun to make it seem like an inmate had shot Piscatella. ("Who Knows Better Than I")
