Karl von Toten is a German scientist that discovered a new and revolutionary technology: a machine capable of making what a person imagined real. He is wanted by Kara. He has the Iron Cross and the Pour le Merite, which indicates that at some point he did a great service to Germany. Probably in the Franco - Prussian war because of his age. This is just a theory.

His archetype in our reality is a German imperial Colonel General (Generaloberst) and in 1915 Governor-general of Generalgouvernement Warschau (also known as the short lived Kingdom of Poland) Hans Hartwig von Beseler (1850 - 1921)


Karl von Toten has been a excellent physicist for a long time, and this got him an invitation to a science conference held by Isaac Newton in 1886.[1] He was known to be one of the best in physics.

It appears that von Toten has worked in the army, as he has an army uniform to wear on special occasions. He also has a pour le Merite, which indicates that he did a great service to the German Empire.

Later, in July of 1903, he was invited to the Knowledge for Victory conference because of his knowledge of physics. Von Toten worked with the group to create war machines, however, they didn't achieve much. He was one of the few who did not went missing after the conference. Since he was one of the best in physics, this proably made the IAGH suspect him. Von Toten had some ideas of his own, and he and K agreed to let him continue working with his own prototype on a smaller scale.

It would seem that von Toten was successful. He had created the Imagination Realizator. To be sure of this he sent a sample of helium to Kaisar's Chemistry Institute. After that he went missing. He also has something to do with the plane.

He first talked to Kara in Covert Front 4. He is a old man so he was not able to escape from Kara. When Manfred came around he was killed by Kara.

Appearance and abilitiesEdit

Von Toten is often seen in a long coat with two rows of buttons. He is bald and has prominent moustache. This coat is only for special ocations. Right now it is in his house. When Kara first saw a hologram of him, he weared a white shirt with a grey/green spencer. In his lab in Lisbon, he weared a white shirt with a brown leather coat.
