The Principal SS Officer at Castle was a Schutzstaffel Major and the principal officer in Castle Brunwald in 1938. He served under the command of Colonel Ernst Vogel.


When the American archaeologist Indiana Jones broke into one of Castle Brunwald's bedrooms, in an attempt to rescue his father, the SS officer and two guards burst into the room and demanded the Grail diary. Following an argument between the father and son, Jones knocked the officer into the wall, took his gun, and shot all three men, prompting Henry to show shock at what his son had done. The Joneses had to step over their dead bodies to exit the room.[1]

Behind the scenes[]

The Principal SS Officer at Castle was played by Luke Hanson in Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade.[1] The film's script, however, refers to him simply as "Officer".

Although the character's rank is never mentioned in the film, his insignia would indicate that he is a Major.[1]

Hasbro released an action figure of the Principal SS Officer at Castle under the name "German Officer".[2]
