"Why do you shudder at lightning? It is a source of life."


Baron Dietmar Von Rautenhart was born into an aristocratic family with strong Austrian ties and a perverse, long-standing interest in the occult. The Rautenharts served as military officers and advisors in nearly every major conflict, and young Dietmar was groomed from childhood to do the same. His father Otto instilled in him the ideas of honor, courage and unassailable class of his station. His mother, on the other hand, encouraged arts and various cultural pursuits while dosing him with the paranormal and arcane. From the exposure to the weird and to the opera and theater, he developed his trademark… flair and persona from an early age. The young baron attended prestigious schools in England, becoming quite cosmopolitan after being exposed to peoples from all over the Empire. Later, he would attend one of the best military academies in Austria, fully expected to become an Wehrmacht officer.


To the shock of his family, he opted to trade horse for airplane and earned his wings just in time to join the fun in Spain with the Condor Legion. He distinguished himself in combat in short order, being tenacious and skilled in the air. His commanders commended his cool under fire and steely determination. He's an unstoppable force, until, of course, he's stopped. Jumped in a dogfight that saw his squadron outnumbered 5-1, he fought valiantly until he was out of ammo and his plane was barely holding together. The lone survivor, he limped home and crashed on the runway. His body shattered, the Reich put their best scientists and surgeons to work rebuilding what was left of him to make him better, the ultimate nazi master pilot. Stitched, bolted and plated together, revived by a massive electric jolt and encased in a black rubberized skin to hold him together, Von Rautenhart was reborn much like Frankenstein's monster. Stronger, tougher, scarier. He is proclaimed a stunning scientific achievement for the Fatherland, a shining example of the Reich's growing power and technological acumen. He is almost immediately nicknamed Baron Von Frankenstein by the press.
