Gustav Anderman was an interstellar mercenary, who, during the 16th Century PD, took control of the planet Potsdam and the New Berlin System, founding the Andermani Empire.

Biography Edit

The planet (then known as Kuan Yin) was in a desperate situation at the time of his arrival. Because its native microorganisms made agriculture almost impossible, the colonists were on the verge of starvation. Anderman, a highly intelligent and competent leader, brought in modern microbiologists and genetic engineers, who developed new, microbe-resistant food crops. The colonists were only too happy to accept Gustav's leadership, and honored him by renaming the planet Potsdam and adopting German as their national language. Anderman proclaimed himself Emperor Gustav I soon afterwards. (HH6)

Along with Cutler Gensonne, he later overthrew Ronald Devane and took control of the Nimbalkar System. Some time later, the Emperor and Gensonne had a falling out and Gensonne left to found the Volsung Mercenaries. (MA2)

Character Edit

Despite being a gifted leader, Gustav was a decidedly eccentric individual. He genuinely believed himself to be the reincarnation of Frederick the Great. To that end, he dressed up in period costume from Fredrick's time, and designed the dress uniforms of the military to look similar. As of the time of Gustav XI, his uniform designs were still in use. (HH6)

Work Edit

Emperor Gustav I later wrote a book, Sternenkrieg, explaining his philosophy on war. (HH2)
