High Adventure in the Steam Age
Count Anton Dire
Mastermind and ruler of Trevania.
In addition to ruler of the tiny German principality of Trevania, Count Anton Dire is also a brilliant engineer. He has discovered a method of harnesses the power of the curious element known as radium and used it to create an engine which powers a flying platform as well as several ornithopters. However, his intellect does have limits. To press forward with his ambitions of turning Trevania into the center of a united Germany, he set out to steal Professor Karla Reinhardt’s Automated Punched Card Shuffler. With it, he hoped to create a fleet of automated, remotely controlled drone craft with which to swarm and destroy the Bayernese and Prussian militaries.
