Context

DC Comics’ Jaeger is a niche, obscure Robin character. As an unethical hunter of “monsters” he can kickstart many adventures, especially if one or more Player Characters  look sufficiently inhuman.

When this profile was done he’d only appeared a couple time, though he apparently popped up once more years later.

Powers and Abilities

Jaeger uses :

  • A winged flying harness. These are rigid wings with jet engines in nacelles at the tips. The engines are nearly silent.
  • An energy pistol.
  • Various high-tech gizmos.

His exact skills and equipment specifications are unrevealed.

He also has surveillance units. Those are small balloons (about a feet in diameter) with video cameras, silent motors and radio transmission equipment. Since they are small, silent and in the air, most people never notice them. Surveillance units are also used to record the hunts, to provide more camera angles.


History

Jaeger is the owner, or main agent, of an outfit that sells movies documenting the hunting and killing of strange-looking creatures. He hunts them himself, taking footage as he does. His business appears to be very successful, as he has solid sums of money to invest in his hunts.

Jaeger crossed Robin (Tim Drake)’s path twice. The first time, he came to the Gotham area to hunt Aaron “Baby Bat” Langstrom. A very young hybrid of man and bat, Langstrom also was the son of Man-Bat.

Robin’s interference prevented Jaeger from snatching his prize. The hunter also was unprepared for Man-Bat’s formidable speed and strength. Jaeger was knocked down into the water, where his heavy harness almost resulted in him drowning.

Moth-eaten

Some months later, Jaeger learned that Robin and Nightwing had captured the monstrous Charaxes.

As both heroes were ferrying the bound moth creature, Jaeger’s employees faked a radio message from the Wayne Industries facility they were heading for. It told them to land on a nearby island. Robin and Nightwing left the landed plane to avoid compromising Nightwing’s identity.

A few minutes later, a small paramilitary team rushed from a helicopter, cutting most of Charaxes’ restraints. Then they ran before the highly dangerous monster could finish extricating himself from the bonds. Robin III and Nightwing lost sight of him as Jaeger engaged him.


Description

Surge (from the Wildstorm universe) with jet wings.


Personality

Apparently a professional hunter, methodical and experienced. He completely dehumanises his targets, seeing them as but heads to be mounted on his wall. This was shocking in the case of the Langstroms.

Being a furriner, Jaeger follows the comic book convention of lacing his speech with words in his native language. In his case, German. No, I never understood that either.

Jaeger’s men didn’t hesitate before destroyed an empty Wayne Tech plane. They also seriously considered killing the crew if they showed up. This might indicate that Jaeger’s stuff is illegal blood sport material. And that as a criminal he has no problem committing further crimes to produce movies.


Quotes

“Danke sehr, young man. You’ve bought the Fledermauskinder into the open.”
