Reiner Samuel Ackerman earned his callsign “Fisher” from his cold, contained, and professional approach to operations in the field. In his early fifties, he remains active in Division 4, deploying when he needs to direct teams from the field instead of his desk. However, most of his time is spent keeping Division 4 ahead of the enemy--be they terrorist, corporate, or other--collecting intelligence, assigning teams to targets, and above all maintaining Division 4’s secrecy.

He started his career in the German military in the navy's Kampfschwimmer, and soon was picked up by the Kommando Spezialkräfte. After many successful missions, upheavals in German politics forced him to go on the run and hunt down traitors in the government, and once that was complete he left the military and joined the PMC named Asgaard. During his tenure there, he continued to distinguish himself up until Saeder-Krupp purchased the company and incorporated it into their security forces.

Sometime during the acquisition, Ackerman was handpicked by Lofwyr to oversee more delicate operations. Once again proving himself, Lofwyr appointed him to oversee anything the Golden Dragon deems too important to leave to the regular security forces of the megacorporation. Ackerman created Division 4 as a means to organize these types of activities and recruit talented specialists.

To the outside world, however, Ackerman was a distinguished military man, attaining high honors until he disappeared to work behind a desk in Asgaard and then S-K. Few know of the close connection between Lofwyr and Ackerman, and fewer still would believe it. Very few within Division 4 itself know Ackerman takes orders directly from Lofwyr, but what they do know is that he is loyal to Germany, S-K, and world order.

Grizzled Veteran You can't take Reiner Ackerman, increase his loyalty, or gain chips, with downtime.

Intelligence Gathering Ackerman will pay a reward for captured terrorists and spies who mean harm to Germany, S-K, or world order (at the GM's discretion). If your GM needs a connection, say 8.
