Description: Dagobert is a very slender man with child like features standing at 1,74 m when standing upright. A soft and innocent face, thin arms and constantly stooped over, he looks somewhat miserable. The faint hint of a beard that adorns his face looks a bit ridiculous. He's no more than 25 years old. His left leg is lame and dragged around like baggage.

- Seeing through the veil: 4. Due to his "experience" in the field of the abnormal, Dagobert has developed a sixth sense for detecting beings or phenomenons that aren't perceivable by regular means, especially those that, as he describes it, emit unusual energy patterns. This expresses itself by him getting goosebumps and a generally uneasy feeling.
- Psyching: 4. Having worked with somewhat less serious colleagues in the past, Dagobert became quite efficient at detecting liars and frauds.
- Occult Knowledge: 4. In his youth, Dagobert stumbled across a collection of occult literature, which sparked his interest in parapsychology. To this day, he collects knowledge about rites and practices, that may come in handy some day.

Dagobert's mother died giving birth to him in 1932, her first and only child. His father was a renowned psychologist, that collected a substantial amount of wealth during his life time. He provided his son with all the education he desired, hiring home teachers that quickly gave up on the boy as he "lacked focus" but was never able to show him any kind of affection. Due to their undeniable and proven heritage as aryans (even though both had pitch black hair) and the fathers high social standing, they were mostly left alone during the events that transpired during the rise and fall of the Third Reich.
Dagobert was born with a lame, underdeveloped left leg, resulting in him spending most of his childhood and youth indoors, reading up on a broad spectrum of topics, including anatomy, psychology, art, law, history and, in the end, parapsychology. The teachers his father hired were to slow and dull for the boy, so he resorted to teaching himself.
His father died in 1949 in a street robbery, leaving Dagobert with his resources at his disposal. He began to build up relationships with established parapsychologists, exchanging discoveries and theories and slowly started leaving his nest.
He briefly delved into developing equipment capable of detecting the paranormal, but quickly turned his attention back to the occult.
He began to actively work at the age of 20, collaborating with a handful of colleagues he deemed serious enough and created the "Liga zur Aufklärung und Katalogisierung paranormaler Aktivitäten". Though young and inexperienced, he quickly made a name for himself, as his theoretical knowledge surpassed those of any other parapsychologist in the field and he was not afraid to resort to apparently magical incantations he gathered from his huge collection of occult literature. He mixed science and the occult to a degree, that, in the end proved to be effective.
In 1955 the Liga successfully managed to clear an actual haunted house of it's otherworldly inhabitants by utilizing Dagoberts intricate knowledge. This brought him to the attention of the foundation which shortly after send a recruitment agent to his home near Stuttgart. Dagobert may be delusional at times but the fact, that he managed to fend off something clearly abnormal, gave him all the confidence he needed.
