Biography[edit | edit source]
Before 1960[edit | edit source]
Kapitän Anton Krieger's history is unknown, however it can be guessed, that to have been given command of the Eva's Hammer, he must have had an incredible record in the Kriegsmarine. The bio pertaining to Marine Captains implies that he may be a veteran from the war.
1960[edit | edit source]
When B. J. Blazkowicz, infiltrated the u-boat, and raised the alarm, Krieger tried to reason with Blazkowicz, by urging to him to surrender to avoid having his men getting killed, and promised to treat Blazkowicz according to the naval regulations of war.
However Blazkowicz reluctantly refused, and continued fighting, Krieger immediately realized the Blazkowiz was heading towards the bridge and ordered all crew members to defend the bridge.Despite the best efforts of his crew, Blazkowicz took over the u-boat, Krieger was shot to death in the brief battle. Later, after the resistance finished securing the u-boat, Krieger's body was dumped into the sea along with rest of his men.
Legacy[edit | edit source]
"Some backbone on this here magnificent fucking u-boat captain. I'll give him that. Took the decryption keys to the nuclear cannon to his grave." -Fergus Reid on Krieger
His death had also delayed the resistance of acquiring the encryption keys to the Eva's Hammer's nuclear codes, and the only other place to gain access was on the Nazi Lunar Base. It could also be assumed that he ordered one of his lieutenants, Fischer to head in to Section F, and send out a call for help in order to prevent the Resistance holding the U-boat.
