Vampire the Requiem: Court and Commonwealth
Hans Bauer is both the Sheriff and one of Van Etten’s “children”. Funny enough though, Hans isn’t a Ventrue like Van Etten. Bauer is a gangrel who has a number of odd jobs. At court and other public events where the prince is present, his main job is protecting the prince. Outside of those events he helps to maintain some sense of law and order, keeping the masquerade, punishing the prince’s enemies. Some say he had been a prized boxer back in the 30s. Others whisper he was once an enforcer for the mob. What everyone knows for sure is that Bauer is both very large and very gifted in the arts of violence.
