Lord Frederick Von Walder is the scion of a most distinguished family, owning extensive estates in Talabecland. He is a younger son, but his elder brother is just below the Elector Counts. He is well known for his funding of awards and medals for those brave enough to fight against Chaos, which he is convinced poses an immediate threat to the Empire. Following a request for help from his cousin Rickard, Lord Frederick tasked one of his most promising agents to assemble a cadre of warriors. Frederick’s friendship with Dieter Klemperer allowed them to call upon aethryic assistance in selecting suitably expendable candidates from those criminals awaiting death at the Palace of Retribution.
