The German department of Special Weapons Development or SWD is a shadowy organization composed of the most brilliant and twisted minds of the Third Reich. The department developed the V-4 compound which turned the tide for Germany as well as the host of new weapons which plague the allies today. The chief scientist for the V-4 development is Doctor Hugo von X. An intensely secretive and suspicious man, his real name is unknown even by his closest colleagues. Von X began work on Projekt Ubermann soon after the merits of zombies as weapons of war were recognized. It is von X that oversaw the development of Pinger technology to shape zombies from a blunt instrument dangerous to the wielder to a focused weapon. Projekt Ubermann began in 1947. By early 1948, the stunning results of his work below Gibraltar were apparent. Von X developed a new compound that elevates the combat potential of both V-gas victims and healthy human beings. The diabolical genius that is Hugo von X did not rest on his laurels but instead began work on yet another strain of the V-4 retrovirus and an unprecedented delivery system. It has been dubbed Vergeltungswaffe 5, the doomsday device, and it will win the war for the Axis. The twisted creations that compose the private army of Hugo von X must hold the line against the Allied Incursion long enough to deploy his magnum opus.
Hans the Hunter
Hans von X is the eldest of the von X children. Hugo’s early experiments on him went horribly wrong and a monster was created. Hans is at peace wandering the channel floor of the straits of Gibraltar, losing himself in the contemplative loneliness of the briny deep. He is melancholy and childishly sweet but prone to fits of blood rage and insensibility. He is at the vanguard of the bomberzombies as they make their attack runs on allied shipping and keeps a collection of frog-men skulls he has harpooned at Gibraltar’s undersea gates. In the tunnels, he hunts APE.
