A gloomy man from the start, Frantz Kruger's life took a turn for the worse when he was bitten by a vampire.
Unable to resist the temptation, he bit just one person. Instead of letting the blood complete his transformation, Frantz used the blood and the force of his own will to halt the process. He now exists as a creature trapped in limbo between human and monstrosity. As a side-effect of his condition, he suffers from chronic anemia and insomnia, giving him an ashen appearance and a sullen, sarcastic disposition.
In this day and age, every young gentleman is expected to know something of swordplay. In Frantz's hands, however, the classic weapon becomes a deadly blur of razor-sharp steel. Lacking in range, using this weapon requires Frantz to be quick on his feet. In battle, he supplements his swordsmanship with dark magic granted by his vampiric blood.
When fighting an uncivilized enemy, sometimes a civilized weapon just won't get the job done. For this reason, Frantz has trained with massive axes that split his monstrous opponents in two with single strokes. Though not as fast as his sword, Frantz's axe makes up for the difference with the raw power and range of his attacks. He also employs some rather unorthodox techniques in which he throws the colossal weapon toward his foes like other men would throw darts.
