He has a typical southern German look, like Bavarian.

im from Germany but not ethnic German and I can tell you

there is not a thing like SOUTHERN GERMAN LOOK etc.

in Bavaria most people have pale skin and blue eyes on the other side in the Black Forest area there are tons of people with black hair and dark eyes but also vice versa

ethnic wanderings you understand
