The Baron

Everything was better in the olden days, at least according to Baron Otto-Titan of Trüberbrook-Sülz, mining engineer in the 3rd generation and generous patron of the village. When a man had to earn his honor and the youth didn’t dance so inappropriately to this horrible horrible modern beat music … There wasn’t much to keep for the old man when “those filthy communists” took over his ore mines. And after he lost the majority of his wealth and his hearing, even his cat Klaus seemed to keep an eye out for a more independent and financially secure provider. That was when their relationship grew colder. Today, only his beloved hunting trophies bring some comfort to the baron’s mind, reminding him of better times, when Kaisers and Zars were fighting over their dominions.
