Of course, I am acutely aware that alignment discussions are sort of unsolvable and don't necessarily have an objectively right or wrong answer...
But I wanted to ask: if you look at real-world historical person Wernher von Braun, what kind of alignment would you assign to him?
(Or other rules things to mimic him?)
(I ask this because I want to play an alchemist who is a bit the obsessed scientist type, not necessary a blueprint of Wernher von Braun, strong parts House MD and doctor Frankenstein as well, but a bit of Wernher as well)
I would say that he was true neutral, more concerned with advancing his scientific knowledge and discovery than any sort of politics or moralistic dogmas. He was a member of the Nazi party, yes, but only because it gave him continued access to research materials (and kept him out of jail). He was far more concerned with advancing the science of propulsion than with what the Nazi High Command was doing with it. There is no sense of malevolence or vitriol from his interviews, just a strong (almost monomaniacal) focus on his research.
That he allowed his work to be used by the Nazis is horrible, and a good person would likely have either tried to flee the country or sabotage their efforts. An evil person likely would have been more politically active, taking test subjects from the camps or actively following the V-1 and V-2 bombing runs, so they could enjoy the destruction. He did neither.
