Next to nothing is known about to man who calls himself Tobias Beck save for the fact that there is next to nothing known about him. Tobias Beck however claims to have a colorful history. He was born on January 18th 1771, one hundred years prior to the Unification of Germany. He was born in Königsberg the capital of the Prussian Empire. Tobias was the subject of a alchemy experiment in 1789 when he was 18 and was given a synthesized electrum compound which stopped his aging and gave him a strong healing factor. The compound also enhanced his natural physiology. After the enhancements Tobias traveled the world learning and training but never forgot his homeland. He was a strong German Nationalist and was a supporter of the Lesser German Solution which sought to unify the northern German states and exclude Austria.
Tobias eventually built himself a large fortune by starting his own weapons company called Eisen Waffen (Iron Weapons) and he provided arms to the Prussian Army and eventually the German Army in both World War I and World War II. Though he supported Germany in the Second World War he was a staunch opponent to the concept of Nazism and aided the failed attempts to kill Hitler such as Operation: Valkyrie. After the Third Reich's fall Tobias went to work trying to rebuild Germany and reunify it.
Tobias would amass a vast fortune by selling arms via Eisen Waffen to military forces around the world, playing both sides in literally almost every war by selling through the black market to terrorist groups, warlords, and crime syndicates. Eventually Tobias would have a controlling stake in every high profile organized crime group, the Yakuza, Triads, Russian Mafia, Irish Mob, and the Italian Mafia. Tobias Beck controlled them all indirectly and reaped the benefits from afar. On a larger scale Tobias would affect national politics to instigate wars and keep his arms business booming.
Today Tobias Beck is one of the world's wealthiest men in the world with a fortune that dwarfs that of even the Wayne Fortune in Gotham City. Tobias' current goals is to gain a stronger foothold in the United States through legitimate business to eventually be able to affect the United States government on a larger level and start up another World War so that he may reap the benefits of the arms build up. The first step, absorbing Wayne Enterprises into Eisen Waffen International by any means.
