Pulp Era Dogs & Cats: Baron Wolf Von Hund
Baron Wolf Von Hund was born into a family of wealth and privilege. They spoiled him terribly, but at the same time expected much of him. At a very young age, he was sent off to military school, where he excelled. A voracious reader, he was knowledgeable on dozens of subjects.
Later, in the army of the Kaiser, young Wolf proved to be a fearless warrior and lead his troops to one victory after another. He moved quickly up the ranks, achieving the position of General just before the end of the Great War.
After the war, Von Hund kept a very low profile. He built up a private espionage organization that was the equal of any in the world. He also devoted a large portion of his personal wealth to aiding scientists, some a bit less orthodox than others, in their experiments. Most of them got nowhere Von Hund considered useful, but a very few attracted more of his attention and funds. They included Dr. Klaus Mongrel, master of energy weapons…Professor Corgi, the female scientist who can create zombies…Dr. Yipyap, the tiny robotics genius from Mexico…and the mysterious scientist known only as “The Brain”, who dabbles in a dozen fields of science and nearly as many kinds of magic.
When the Nazis rose to power, Von Hund knew it was time to offer his services. He is now the big dog in charge when it comes to acts of espionage, terror and sabotage. It is work that the Baron enjoys quite a lot. Unfortunately, he is constantly bedeviled by the likes of Bark Savage, Drummond Bulldog, Indiana Bones, Duck Tracy, Secret Agent K9 and other upstart Americans and Brits.
Wolf Von Hund is a large Doberman Pinscher of early middle age, but is in better shape than most dogs half his age. He is deadly in paw to paw combat, is a crack shot, an ace pilot and never ever loses his cool. To underestimate the Baron is a big mistake that you will regret…if you live long enough.
