Dick Tracy Wiki

Baron Von Klumeister was an elderly German man. He had short grey hair and a bushy moustache. He was blind and walked with the aid of a cane.

During the Cold War, Baron Von Klumeister had been in East Germany, where he worked with the Communist Party leaders as a spy. After the collapse of communism in Eastern Europe, Klumeister refused to help his former colleagues who wanted to regain power. He was severely beaten, which left him blind and permanently injured.

In the mid-2000s, the Baron came to America with his granddaughter Gretchen, who was abducted from the airport immediately upon their arrival. The Baron was guarded by the CIA and Dick Tracy.

It was later revealed that Gretchen was working with the men who had abducted her and they were all members of a group of foreign agents attempting to revive the Cold War. Gretchen was killed during a failed bombing plot in Washington DC, and the Baron was returned to Germany.
