Johanna's family background is unknown. In 755 UC (446 IC / 3555 CE), she met Christoph von Basel and Michael von Keyserling at the artificial resort satellite Kreuznach III where the two were having a vacation. Over time, she fell in love with Christoph and ended up marrying him. Although she had rejected Keyserling's marriage proposal in the process, they still remained as friends. (DIS: 'Chapter II')
In 794 UC (485 IC / 3594 CE), Johanna discovered that her husband was the mastermind of a massive thyoxin production and trafficking organisation and that Keyserling had covered up for him previously in 792 UC (483 IC / 3592 CE) which resulted in the latter being demoted and dishonourably discharged from the military. Feeling indignant for her friend but unwilling to betray her husband, Johanna decided to organise a gathering at Kreuznach III in November 795 UC (486 IC / 3595 CE) where she hoped that her husband would take the opportunity to apologise to Keyserling for his actions against him. To further her objective, she sent an anonymous tip to both the Kreuznach III police and her husband; informing the former that the mastermind of the drug organisation would arrive in Kreuznach III and warning the latter that his crimes would be exposed unless he atoned for them. Unfortunately, her plan backfired when her husband mistook the warning as blackmail from Keyserling and attempted to kill him instead. The attempted murder however caught the attention of both Siegfried Kircheis, who was on vacation at Kreuznach III, and the local police and upon further investigation, they were able to uncover Christoph's crimes. In an attempt to protect her husband, Johanna tried to destroy incriminating papers against him but was shot to death by Keyserling before she could do so. (DIS: 'Chapter I', 'Chapter IV')
