Bert Unger is a husband and father living in the underwater city of Rapture.
Bert Unger was an employee at Fontaine's Department Store, working in the Bistro of the Housewares department (along waitress Shirley Womack) under Fontaine Futuristics, until Ryan Industries took stewardship over the business, giving Unger a new employer. The Radar Range being a fairly new product for the Rapture citizens and for the Bistro, it sparked curiosity in some, including the son of Bert Unger. Just two days before Fontaine's was converted into a prison, Unger's son took the Radar Range without permission and started using it on various items in a careless childlike way, until the family Pekingese stepped in the beam. This made Mrs. Unger furious, causing Bert to lock the Radar in the Bistro's freezer.
