Rudolf Reingold was SS captain in Adolf Hitler's personal guard and an agent of the secret Thule Society of Nazi Germany. He was tasked by the Führer to find a subterranean world where men became gods.
After being assigned to find Ultima Thule, Reingold and his men encountered Indiana Jones and his comrades numerous times in 1934 leading up to their final confrontation inside a subterranean cave near Iceland. Fearsome mosaic paintings serving as booby traps attacked Reingold and his men, dragging them into the wall where they became mosaics themselves. Reingold was pulled halfway through and Jones made a vain attempt at rescue but the Nazi, in agonizing pain, begged for death and so Jones's burly Viking comrade, Gunnar Erickson, snapped Reingold's neck.
Personality and traitsEdit
Rudolf Reingold was a six-foot one-inch tall, blue-eyed man with blond hair and a scar that ran down his right cheek. He could adopt a near-flawless English accent and affable personality which he used to make Indiana Jones drop his guard on a train out of New Jersey and stole the man's satchel while the archaeologist was sleeping.
