Biography[]

Obendorf works part-time as a driver and delivery man at the Winden Nuclear Power Plant.

Little is known of his background, but he and his wife Ulla have one son, Erik, who went missing on October 22, 2019. On November 4, with no apparent progress made on the investigation, they went to the Winden Police, where Jürgen confronted investigator Charlotte Doppler aggressively, Jürgen shouting at her and Ulla spitting in her face. The situation was defused by another officer, Ulrich Nielsen, who suggested that Erik might have run away.

After Ulrich's own son Mikkel went missing in the vicinity of the nuclear plant, Ulrich became suspicious of Jürgen himself. Secretly poking around Jürgen's junk shed, he located a stash of drugs, and Jürgen admitted that he and Erik had been working together to sell the drugs at the local high school.

Aleksander Tiedemann, the director of the plant, denied Ulrich access to it. Nevertheless, the interaction spooked Aleksander, who bullied Jürgen into driving a truck full of drums of nuclear waste out of the Winden Caves before the police would arrive with a search warrant.Dark Season 1 Episode 2: "Lies"

Seven months later, Jürgen attended the town assembly where a new federal task force led by Inspector Clausen was announced. Jürgen forced Clausen to admit that the task force consisted only of himself, assisted by Charlotte Doppler, whose failure to find the missing children had discredited in Jürgen's eyes. Dissatisfied with Clausen's preference to have the same set of eyes look at all angles, Jürgen stormed out of the room.<ref>Dark Season 2 Episode 1: "Beginnings and Endings"</references>
