German statesman and diplomat who played an important role in Hitler’s coming to power in 1933. He was also the German ambassador in Turkey between 1939-1944. He now stands against Hitler. His opposition is due to him being an old German General. In WWI, when Von Papen was a general in the German Army, Hitler was a corporal and he has stayed that way Papen’s eyes. He has noble blood which makes him somewhat arrogant. He hates Moyzisch and men like him but he does not have enough power to dismiss Moyzisch. He is not liked among Nazis but because he knows Turkish (and was serving in Turkey during WWI) he was appointed as ambassador. He has a weapon collection, perhaps his most valuable possession which he enjoys cleaning every day.
