Johann is a "younger guy" with bright orange hair that he ties back in a low ponytail. His eyes are reddish-brown.
Compared to his fellow smith Zack, Johann is quieter and more serious. He is not good at talking to clients, and often frustrates non-craftsmen with his long and detailed lists of questions about each design. He enjoys challenging himself to create sophisticated and complex machinery, even when it means taking a bigger risk that the end product won't work.
Johann is not good at dealing with other people. At Haldenzel when the local smithes fail to reach the necessary standards for metal letter types he only sorted the individual types of sufficient quality from those that failed, but didn't explain why they failed, leading to confusion and outright anger on part of the local craftsmen. Thankfully Rozemyne was able to difuse the situation by calming everyone and explaining in detail what exactly was wrong with the failed types and what consequences it would have if they had been used in a printing press, advicing Johann to give similar explanations in the future.
