Background/History:

Of the various Nazi projects created during the Second World War, no was more dangerous than the Karotechia. Created to research and deal with the occult, the Karotechia repeatedly meddled in things better left alone. One of the men they send out to find such things (in fact, their best agent) was one Reinhard Galt, and SS Oberfuhrer. He traveled all over the world, and towards the end of the War, found himself in the Belgian Congo looking for the Anzique tribe (who were reputed to be invincible in battle).

 

What he found was a tribe of virtual immortals, many over 300 years old. The Anziques possessed the secret of eternal life, and they weren't going to give out such information for free. Galt, on the other hand, was willing to pay any price to learn the secret, and ended up handing over the men under his command to become an immortal like the Anziques. One cannibal feast later and he was inducted into the tribe.

 

Galt spent 6 years with the Anziques, learning various spells and rituals, before returning to Europe and the ranks of ODESSA. He then went on to serve as a military advisor for the Egyptian Army, then left for South American, where he worked with the security forces of various nations. Eventually, he became one of the Karotechia, working to bring about the Fourth Reich's domination of the world.

 

Personality/Motivation:

Actually, Galt could careless about controlling the world. He is far more interested in living for as long as possible. He has tired of his fellow Karotechia members, recognizing the limitations of their mortality, and has even less use for the various low-ranking men who live and work around him. Unable to tolerate failure or inefficiency, he's known to kill those who fail him.

 

To make matters worse, Galt's immortality requires him to consume human flesh. Thus, he not only kills those who fail him, but will often eat them as well. He tries out various cannibalistic recipes and has been known to hunt down a person prior to eating them (makes the flesh more flavorful you see). Recently, he's begun to experiment with consume his victims while they are still alive and conscious...

 

Powers/Tactics:

Galt's Anzique ring makes him fairly immune to kinetic attacks such as firearms (Note: 12 PD might be too low, rework this to a power level suitable for you. Also -- it might work better as a "Self Only" Force Wall.), and so, he tends to be fairly fearless in a firefight. But he's no fool, and tends to work as efficiently (and effectively) as possible, going into any encounter well armed and well informed. Galt will also withdraw when a situation goes bad, knowing he can try again (and hey, he will outlive his foes anyway).

 

Aside from his Ring, Galt can stop his body from aging by periodically consuming human flesh. I made this a yearly ritual (via the One Year Charge), but it might need to be done more often than that. Suffice to say, Galt now prefers to eat his fellow humans for most meals. He also can access someone's memories and skills by devouring their brain tissue, although only for 24 hours. Finally, buy cutting certain bones from a still-living victim, he can create new rings, enchanting them via an extended ritual.

 

Appearance:

Reinhard Galt is 6'3" and 190 lbs of Aryan superman. He has a very muscular build, blond hair, blue eyes, a clean-shaven face, and looks like the poster boy for the Waffen SS.

 

Designer's Notes:

SS Oberfuhrer Reinhard Galt comes from the pages of Pagan Publishing's "Delta Green" campaign setting, an excellent sourcebook on mixing modern horror and conspiracy with the Call of Cthulhu Mythos. I highly recommend it.

 

As for Galt, I, for one, would seriously rewrite his stats and skills if I was going to use him in a campaign. I think his DEX and EGO need to be higher. I also think his skills could use some editing. I'd give him a martial arts package -- basic commando training, as well as levels with small arms (not just his Luger). I'd also dump the useless W.W.II skills (like WF: Panzer Weapons), and go with some more modern equipment (like rocket launchers and machine-guns).

Eh, I don't know. I think he's icky, but no worse than, oh, every damn character in Kult. Any game that casually assumed physical/psychological/sexual abuse as a matter of course....

 

Then again, I like a little dark in my games. Now if this guy were supposed to be a PC, I'd be worried.

I don't find him offensive. Nazis, especially SS Stormtroopers, make wonderful villians. A bit over done, but heh, if the shtick works don't fix it.

 

If he were presented as a HERO... that would be another story.

I was in a game where the mentalist grandaughter of an ex-Nazi was possessed by his spirit, which took over her body periodically. He had occasional partial relapses, and was a bit on the anti-hero side, but eventually became undeniably heroic.

 

What was really odd was that he was on the same team with a texan construction/demolition foreman/ex military man who transformed into a 12 foot, 6 ton Iron golem with a glowing Star of David on his forehead...

 

yep, that was pretty much a Defenders type non-team team...
