Maximilian Zabloski was born near the Prussian/Russian border in a remote, wooded area known for tales of rabid werewolves. In his youth, he had participated in several werewolf hunts with the local Jaegers, actually involved in the slaying of one. Maximilian’s father wished his son to have a better life than he had, so he saved up for years to send him to Austrian Polytechnic to study engineering. After college he was employed at the Prussian Telegraph Office as chief electrician. He re-engineered the electric generators and made them much more efficient, catching the attention of two inventor-entrepreneurs, Oliver Fischart and Wolfram Bach. Maximilian worked with them for several months, building electric motors and helping with new designs. Fischart and Bach had done contract work for the Rippers and knew they were looking for engineers so they introduced Maximilian to them.

Maximilian is rarely seen without his pipe, and his latest gizmo is a camera flash device that he modified to temporarily blind opponents. He carries around spare parts in his travel bag, always tinkering in his spare time to make new “toys”.
