Profile Information

New to the world of steampunk and looking to learn far more.

What I have so far;

Colonel Wilhelm Heizeltroff was born within the boundaries of the South German Empire near Heidelberg but was moved as a small child to New York. It was as a child he showed a knack for alchemy. This would serve him as well in later years.

During the grand war between the American Republic and the Confederate Empire he completed his education with a degree in alchemic research with an emphasis on bio-enhancement. He joined the military of the Republic as a first liutenant upon completetion of his degree. He quickly advanced in rank after he was transfered to the special research division. His own contributions helped lead to the eventual ceasefire and subsequent truce in 1877. Unfortunately those soldiers who had been subjects of his experiments were bound to military service or prisons due to the violent and unstable natures caused by his experiments.

Upon his retirement in 1881 Wilhelm began furthering his experiments in a private labatory and sells his findings to anyone willing to pay his hefty prices. To insure some security though he also produced those formulai that he could sell legally. His lab soon became known as the lab for the highest quality of serums for hardening materials and the fastest acting acids. Though proud of his service to the grand republic he does not concern himself with how his serums and concoctions are used so long as his fees are paid and he can find a steady supply of subjects to continue his experiments.
