Like his predecessors, Albrecht was a genetically enhanced descendant of Leonard Detweiler, the founder of Mesa and the originator of the scheme, which became the Mesan Alignment, to genetically improve the human species. He was married to Evelina Detweiler.
Unlike his own father, who created only one offspring to follow in his footsteps, Albrecht decided to "diversify", having no less than six cloned "sons": Benjamin, Collin, Daniel, Everett, Franklin, and Gervais. (HH11, HH14)
He was the leader, in effect the Chief Executive Officer, of Mesa, its most important corporations (including Manpower Incorporated), and of the Alignment itself. He was, therefore, one of the most significant individuals in the Galaxy, though unknown to it.
In mid-1921 PD, he travelled to the secret Alignment base in the Darius System to congratulate the personnel of the Mesan Alignment Navy for their successful execution of Operation Oyster Bay. (HH12).
In October 1922 PD, he and his wife Evelina committed suicide by detonating nuclear devices all over surface and in space above planet Mesa to cover Alignment presence in Mesa system. After Manticoran-Havenite joint fleet arrived in orbit of Mesa and taken over the system, the detonation dealt an additional PR blow to Star Kingdom in the eyes of Solarian public.
The detonation also killed rest of Alignment inner onion personnel still awating for Hudini extraction. (SI4)
