Hauptmann Venkman - Die Geisterjäger Officer
"Die Geisterjäger" are my take on alt-history, WW2 Ghostbusters. I focused on trying to capture the general likeness of the character, rather than the specific actor that portrayed them in the movies.
From the Ark of the Covenant and the Right Hand of Doom, to the Spear of Destiny and the Keep at Dinu Mountain Pass, it seems that the Nazis' quest for Supernatural power manages to always go wrong. SOMEONE has to clean up the mess, and that's where "Die Geisterjäger" come in. With the help of an unlikely ally in a British soldier trapped behind enemy lines, the team desperately tries to save the earth from enemies unknown and unknowable... even as the world is tearing itself apart.
Where Here Stantz is a true believer in the super natural, and Doktor Spengler is an adamant non-believer, Hauptmann Venkman simply does not care. Having been able to charm his way up the chain of command to comfortable Captain's rank, Venkman had his pick of assignments. Assuming the special project known as Die Geisterjäger would be little more than a wild goose chase, he happily accepted the responsibility for leading the operation. Now, he doesn't know what to believe, and whether it's more horrifying in his current role or back on the front lines.
