Two German Guards tasked by Prince Ludwig the Indestructible to guard Lord Edmund Blackadder and Lord Melchett for the rest of their lives. After their deaths, their sons would take over.

Being Germans, the guards were sticklers for efficiency and followed a specific routine. When they would feed the prisoners, they'd first greet the prisoners by calling them "Englander scum". Second, they'd march to the table and put the food on it. Third, they'd spit on the food. Fourth, they'd throw their groins in the prisoners faces, as a further insulting gesture. However, Lord Blackadder had made a note of their routine and realized when they'd be at their most vulnerable. When they did their insulting gesture, Blackadder and Melchett hit them both in the groin, taking them out and allowing the prisoners to escape.
