Hans Hüttig born (Hans Benno Hüttig on the 5 April 1894, Dresden, German Empire) is the Reichskommisar of Ostafrika.

A former concentration camp commandant with connections in the pre-WWI German East Africa, Hüttig is brutal yet efficient, devoted to the ideals of National Socialism, and deeply resentful of his fellow peers Müller and Schenck in the other African Reichskommissariats, who he sees as decaying degenerates.

He desires to enlighten Africa by bringing his perfected Aryan colonial order to all of the continent, and is prepared to go to war to do so.

In-Game Biography[edit | edit source]

In all of the Reich, few names embody tenebrosity as stirringly as Reichskommissar Hans Hüttig. Once the overseeing commandant of brutal extermination camps during the war, Hüttig has devoted himself to ruthlessly fulfilling the National Socialist tradition over Ostafrika. Within labyrinthine camps of African slaves, and burgeoning swaths of revolting tribes he is seen a pernicious enigma of Nazi horror and a mathematician of ruination. For Hüttig himself, he prefers to see himself as the only German in Africa who sees the truth: Africa is a continent with an heart of utter darkness; and a fist of damascus steel must crush her subhuman evil.

Hüttig's sworn loyalty to the Reich, domestic brutality, and organizational competence has been proved time after time again. From ensuring an effective, pure government, employing only Germans and refusing to use African SS divisions, to the constant drill and battling of his elite garrison, bolstered by the former Anglo-Saxon population of Rhodesia, Hüttig's rigid and militaristic society is more akin to a massive concentration camp than a colonial authority. Yet as his fellow governors leave their dominions to decadence and decay, they are seen as stars for their facsimiles of prosperity and undeserved wealth.

In return, Hüttig harbours nothing but contempt for his peers, solely communicating with Reich and planning for the inevitable conflicts within the south and the east himself. He has no disputes with the title affixed to him by foreign intelligence - the only Nazi in Africa. To him, Africa needs no one else.
