Gunther, the son of an officer of the German army, has been sent by his father to the glider flying club which would form a regiment of fallschirmjager, also known as ‘parachute hunters’ later in time. His unit, known as SS Fallschirmjager, is one of the elite troops in the German army, where he is the best in his unit. Gunther’s facial expressions and gestures show his pride as a member SS Fallschirmjager, where it has managed to outperform others. However, as the skies over the Reich become the turf of Allied aircraft, he was transferred to the eastern front, though this time, without the parachute.
A descendant of one of the prominent noble houses of old Germany, Karl voluntarily joined the army and graduated from military academy with excellent records. His holier-than-thou attitude is hardly noticeable in his speech, but he believes deep in his heart the superiority of the Arians and is a perfectionist to the bone. Although less experienced than his peers, this dark horse has already made an impressive debut on the eastern front. Many expect that his career in the military will eventually bring him to the top echelons. Karl’s looks may be deceiving – he may appear a thin man with a face that resembles that of a hawk, but he packs more muscle than one might expect.
