Drosselmeier’s most elite toy soldier, he shares many construction features with the lower ranking automatons, however he is capable of greater strength, range of motion, and agility and is equipped with more armor and intelligence. He is the disturbingly efficient, unfeeling commander of Drosselmeier’s army in battle and has authority over the Elite Hussars. He is cold and deadly, remorseless and ruthless, ever prepared, rarely surprised. He is a master sniper. He wields special short muskets equipped with large saber blades and are designed to load more swiftly than any other firearm, with the aid of a special ammunition belt on his back. Thus armed he never has cause to put down a weapon or be caught off guard.
