Category: Nazi, Spy, Human, Villain
Age: Exact age unknown. Approximately Late 20s – Early 30s
Origin: Nazi Germany
Habitat: Fort Myer Prison (occasionally - Arthur Deal III’s house, 8 Estate Drive, Arlington)
General Description: One of the top Nazi spies in the United States, presiding over the majority of the Abwehr sabotage operations. Being imprisoned did not stop Baroness from continuing her operations. There are, however some unconfirmed rumors that she is working for the Nazis against her will...
Friends, Associates, and Sidekicks: Hansen, Arthur Deal III
Sworn Enemies: Wonder Woman
Special Powers: Access to the latest Nazi technology, like the chains specially forged to be unbreakable even by elephants.
Weapons of Choice: Sleeping gas – one of the Third Reich’s brilliant accomplishments
Weaknesses: Baroness tends to overestimate her own abilities and underestimate her opponents
Hobbies: Framing American heroes
Pet Peeves: Democracy
Best Lines: - She [Wonder Woman] seems so plain and uninteresting. Her coloring’s rather like wet Bisquick. I’m sure she is blind as a bat without those glasses.
Total Estimated Power Rating: 8
6 Intellect Points + 2 Base Physical Strength Points
Danger Level: Medium. Extremely intelligent and resourceful, Baroness is an extremely effective mastermind of sabotage. She is not physically powerful however and can be easily defeated in hand-to-hand combat.
Identification: She often wears a weird looking golden “pendant,” that in actuality is an ancient Austrian gate key. The door that this key opens leads to an underground tunnel that allows Baroness to slip in and out of prison.
How to Avoid: Try not to be a war hero. If you are one, be aware that Baroness works day an night developing plans to discredit your name, thus delivering a crushing blow to the morale of the American people.
Suggested Actions in Case of Encounter: Baroness relies on her intelligence rather than blunt force. Always be on the look out for a possible trap.
Suggested Killing Techniques: As in the case of most spies, Baroness is an extremely valuable source of information and capturing her would be much more useful than killing her. Especially, if the rumors that she works for the Nazis against her will are confirmed...
