The O.S.A.

Introduced in: Return To Castle Wolfenstein
Voiced by: Tony Jay (Director), Robin Atkin Downes (Director, Wolfenstein), James Alcroft (Jack)

  • Big Good: They are the original leaders of the agency that Blazkowicz reports to, and they send him on his missions to stop the Nazis.
  • Advertisement:
  • Everyone Calls Him "Barkeep": The Director. Subverted as of Quake Champions, which reveals that his name is Joseph D. Hassett.
  • Fat and Skinny: The Director is pretty robust, while Jack has a normal body type.
  • Intermission: They both appear in the intermission segments of RTCW.
  • Mission Control: Blazkowicz is officially reporting to them and under their authority.
  • The Other Darrin: The Director is voiced by a different actor in Wolfenstein (2009), since Tony Jay had passed away by that point.
  • What Happened to the Mouse?: What happened to the OSA after the Nazi victory in the MachineGames timeline is unknown, though the most likely possibility is that they, like many of the American leadership, were arrested and sent into hard labour or just executed.

    Agent One 
Introduced in: Return To Castle Wolfenstein
Voiced by: Jim Piddock

  • Captain Crash: In the prequel, Operation: Resurrection. After escaping from the enchanted tomb on Egypt, both Blazkowicz and him take a plane in order to reach Castle Wolfenstein. After entering a "hot zone", they crash into a forest near there and they're captured by the Nazis, led by Helga Von Bulow.
  • Doomed by Canon: Being the extra missions of Operation: Resurrection a prequel to the games' story, he fills this role.
  • Electric Torture: This was his fate after being captured. The PC and Xbox port of the game starts with the sound of this happening to him.
  • Foregone Conclusion: He had the bad luck of being the player's companion in the prequel to the main missions.
  • Replacement Goldfish: In between the years of Return and The Old Blood, a new agent is designated as Agent One and becomes friends with B.J., helping him sneak into the castle. Of course, he doesn't last long.
  • Spared by the Adaptation: If you play the Co-op mode in the console versions of Return to Castle Wolfenstein, he survives being tortured by the Nazis and accompanies B.J. throughout the game.
  • Strapped to an Operating Table: You encounter him dead in this condition after breaking free yourself at the start of the game.

The Kreisau Circle

In general

Introduced in: Return To Castle Wolfenstein

A group of German resistance fighters.

  • Ascended Extra: Although Wolfenstein isn't the first time Blazkowicz works with the Kreisau Circle, this time we actually meet the resistance members themselves, and they get a more important role on the story.
  • La Résistance: Unusually for a WWII-themed video game, they're the German Resistance, even if at some point, they tell you to kill 'The Germans'.

    Caroline Becker 
Introduced in: Wolfenstein (2009)
Voiced in English by: Anna Graves (Wolfenstein 2009), Bonita Freidericy (The New Order; The New Colossus)
Voiced In Japanese by: Hana Takeda (The New Order; The New Colossus)

Former teacher and leader of the Circle.

  • Badass Gay: She has a giant pinup girl poster in her room in The New Order. In The New Colossus, BJ can find a love letter in Caroline's room from her late (well, braindead) girlfriend. Also, in Wolfstone 3D, the outro of Episode 5 says that her "mistress" had better not find out about Caroline's defeat.
  • Big Good: Does a good amount of planning and is generally seen as the leader of The Kreisau Circle in The New Order.
  • Bury Your Gays: Her death in the opening mission of The New Colossus strongly qualifies, seeing how she is the only known homosexual member of the resistance.
  • Decapitation Presentation: Even after decapitating Caroline, Frau Engel decides to taunt B.J. with it too.
  • Defiant to the End: She tells BJ to never give up or give in to the Nazis before Frau Engel chops off her head.
  • Died in Your Arms Tonight: Subverted. See Instant Death Bullet.
  • Faking the Dead: She returns as a major character in Wolfenstein: The New Order, albeit now in a wheelchair.
  • Fire-Forged Friends: She's this with B.J. and is clearly happy to see him when he first arrives.
  • Handicapped Badass: In The New Order, despite being paralyzed is still the leader of the rebellion. Later on, she wears Powered Armor that lets her move.
  • Hero of Another Story: In between The New Order and The New Colossus, she joined up with the Paris resistance and fought alongside them. It apparently ended poorly, but she did recover a headless Ubersoldier body which comes in handy later on and managed to save her braindead girlfriend and preserve her indefinitely with a special solution Set cooked up which also comes in handy later on.
  • Instant Death Bullet:
    • She "dies" instantly from being shot through the spleen, without even getting any dramatic last words.
    • Averted in The New Order where she is shown to have survived but left paralyzed from the waist down.
  • Mentor Occupational Hazard: Frau Engel beheads her with an Axe in The New Colossus and B.J. is the one now using her power armor.
  • Off with Her Head!: Her fate thanks to Frau Engel.
  • Palette Swap: In Wolfstone 3D, she looks similar to Gretel Grosse of the original Wolf 3D, with a gold battle suit and wild gray hair.
  • Rebel Leader: She is the defacto leader of The Circle.
  • Sudden Sequel Death Syndrome: She isn't even a few chapters in, and she dies at Frau Engel's hands.
  • Team Mom: Somewhat takes on this role in The New Order. The romantic elements are dropped from her interactions with B.J. and is shown being rather nurturing to members of the Circle.
  • Token Romance: In Wolfenstein 2009 she was perhaps meant to be a love interest, and B.J. laments her (supposed) death rather emphatically considering how little time they actually spent together. Or maybe he just really values her leadership abilities. The sequels dropped this, making her more of a motherly figure to the resistance.
  • Younger Than They Look: She was born in the early 1920's, and her graying hair and physical decrepitude are implied to be symptoms of stress due to the severe critical injuries she suffered from Hans Grosse's torture, Deathshead's bullet and the destruction of the castle. At the beginning of The New Colossus, she's only 41.

    Erik Engle 
Introduced in: Wolfenstein (2009)
Voiced by: Matthew Mercer

Second in charge of the Circle.

    Hans Schmidt 
Introduced in: Wolfenstein (2009)
Voiced by: Philipp Karner

The Radio operator of the Circle.

  • Flat-Earth Atheist: After the Dig Site mission, he claims that the Golden Dawn's leader seeks to "save the world from black magic. Which means he's either insane or an idiot". You could interpret that as B.J. keeping the Medallion's powers a secret... if not for the fact that completing the aforementioned mission also causes black clad Nazi sorcerers to fight openly in the city they are in.

    Fergus Reid 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/rsz_wtno-fergus-reid_3878.jpg
Introduced in: The New Order
Voiced in English by: Gideon Emery
Voiced In Japanese by: Susumu Akagi

Scottish pilot and buddy of B.J.'s who is part of the assault on Deathshead's compound.

  • Accidental Pervert: His attempt to ask out a fellow resistance member ends poorly when his artificial hand grabs her boobs. The arm was acting on its own, but poor Maria had no way of knowing it.
  • Ace Pilot: You have to give him props for keeping the cargo plane he and B.J. are on at the start at the game in the air for as long as he did.
  • Apologetic Attacker: If Deathshead dissects him in 1946 and puts his brain in the prototype robot in 1960.
  • Artistic License – Military: Despite being a Wing Commander in the RAF, he is seen wearing the uniform of a sergeant in the Parachute Regiment.
  • Artificial Limbs: Gets one in New Colossus after he loses his original one to Frau Engel. It seems to have a mind of it's own, often trying to kill Fergus and even sabotage his efforts with women.
  • Badass Grandpa: Fergus is in his fifties by the events of the game, and has achieved plenty of mean feats as B.J.'s second-in-command providing he survives 1946.
  • Blood Knight: He's pretty enthusiastic about killing Nazis.
  • Brave Scot: A courageous, boisterous Scotsman.
  • Cloudcuckoolander: How else can you describe a guy who randomly breaks out into song (My Bonnie Lies Over the Ocean) as he's shouting out orders while under heavy fire? It could just be him trying to cope with the stress though. And, when considering the world that he lives in, he comes off quite sane.
  • Commanding Coolness: He held the rank of Wing Commander in the RAF during the war, equivalent to a naval Commander, or an Army Lieutenant Colonel, and is thus two ranks ahead of BJ.
  • Face Death with Dignity: Even going as far as reminding everyone that people die in war, while the walls close in on them, no less.
    • If B.J. chooses him to be the one dissected by Deathshead, he tells B.J. that it's not his fault and even manages to resist Deathshead's torture to a remarkable degree. In contrast, Wyatt behaves exactly how'd you expect a man being dissected alive to behave if he's the one you pick.
      Fergus: It's okay, Blazko. It's war - people die. My time's up, is all.
  • Ink-Suit Actor: In The New Colossus, Fergus bears a strong facial resemblance to Gideon Emery.
  • The Lancer: His starts the game as B.J.'s best battle buddy and becomes this again when they're reunited if he survives 1946.
  • Made of Iron: Aside from his aforementioned stoicism in the face of being dissected, Fergus barely reacts at all to getting his arm cut off in The New Colossus, immediately retrieving his gun and killing all four of the Nazi soldiers restraining B.J.
    B.J: Gotta respect a guy who can lose an arm and soldier on like it's nothing.
  • Older Than They Look: Like B.J., Fergus looks unchanged from when the player meets him in 1946, despite now being in his fifties.
  • Older Sidekick: He's older then B.J. and becomes a Badass Grandpa in 1960, if he survives back in '46. It becomes a point of contention between the two in 1960, as he brings up the fact that he and B.J. are only going to slow down with age.
    Fergus: What happens when we're too fucking battered to strap on the holsters?
  • Only Sane Man/Unfazed Everyman: By the time you find Set Roth, he falls into this trope, giving a long monologue about how bizarre his current situation is, and it's so sarcastic it could peel the paint from the walls. Here it is:
    Fergus: "Thank you so much for the new socks. They're right warm and a snug fit. Yeah, I'm doing well. Although this war has grown a little wearisome. Nothing much interesting ever happens these parts. Today I landed a Nazi helicopter on a nicked Nazi nuclear submarine aircraft carrier. After which I donned a deep-water diving suit, swam down an abyssal trench in the middle of the Atlantic fucking ocean, don't mean to bother you with the details. Long story short, I'm in a secret vault full of things so magical and abnormal in nature the mind has no recourse but to shudder in bewilderment. 'Course I'm accompanied by a nazi-killing lunatic and some kind of genius wizard who claims to be on a first-name basis with God Almighty himself. Ah, well, we can only hope for a more stimulating turn of events in the future. Give my love to everyone back home, Fergus out.
  • Seen It All: Develops into this by the end of the game, to the point that he only displays mild bemusement as a suit of Powered Armor creeps up his legs.
  • Sir Swears-a-Lot: The most foul-mouthed character in the series, by far. He'll rarely let two sentences pass without cursing.
  • Survivor's Guilt: If he survives 1946 he at one point rails at BJ for saving him instead of Wyatt, saying that BJ and him are too old to fight much longer, and that Wyatt's youth would've let him carry on the fight better than him.
  • Violent Glaswegian: The man has a hearty Scottish accent and is plenty gung-ho about killing Nazis. In the promotional artwork for the game he's even wearing a "Glasgow" t-shirt.

    Probst Wyatt III 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/rsz_wyattiii_9505.jpg
Introduced in: The New Order
Voiced in English by: A.J. Trauth
Voiced In Japanese by: Go Shinomiya

A Private in the US 109th Airborne who is part of the assault on General Deathshead's compound.

  • Adorkable: He starts out as Gosh Dang It to Heck! individual and by New Colossus, he began to awkwardly talk Jive Turkey and behaves like Cloudcuckoolander especially after taking what seems to be Acid though that does not stop him from being an effective ally.
  • Apologetic Attacker: If Deathshead dissects him in 1946 and puts his brain in the prototype robot in 1960.
  • Artistic Stimulation: By New Colossus he's began to dabble in what is probably Acid. Guess you don't become friends with Jimi Hendrix: without being a wee bit incited to try some.
  • Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: Even BEFORE the Incinerator sequence, (where he spends most of the time being the New Meat Nervous Wreck), he takes out a Panzerhund that was mauling B.J.... telling it to "Go Fetch" with a grenade, blowing the whole contraption sky-high.
  • Despair Event Horizon: After taking a huge dose of psychedelics and having a vividly, existentially terrifying trip, apparently convincing himself that he's already dead. B.J. has to punch him out to keep him from shooting himself.
  • Good Scars, Evil Scars: Receives a horizontal scar on his right cheek from Frau Engel near the beginning of New Colossus.
  • Gosh Dang It to Heck!: In contrast to Fergus, he never swears, aside from using lone religious swearing such as "Jesus" or "God" on some occasions. Even in his thirties, he watches his language.
    • Precision F-Strike: The one time he averts the above is when he uses a helicopter to decapitate an Ubersoldat punching Blaskowicz to death.
    Wyatt: Leave him alone, you damn ugly fuck!
  • The Lancer: To B.J. if he survives 1946.
  • Last-Name Basis: His first name has never even been said in the games.
  • Nervous Wreck: When B.J. and Fergus meet him in person for the first time after he was forced to take the pilot's wheel of his troop transport he's on the floor crying. It takes B.J. slapping some sense into him to get him to calm down.
  • New-Age Retro Hippie: By New Colossus, he's begun studying Transcendental Meditation and dropping acid, though he's got a long way to go before he gets a hang of either.
  • New Meat: His first taste of action is the assault on Deathshead's compound. Unlucky him.
  • Pretty Fly for a White Guy: Uses a lot of Jive Turkey slang around Grace, just to prove he's down with it. Everybody is a little embarrassed.
  • Rousing Speech: Gives one at the end of The New Colossus if you choose the timeline in which he survives.
    Wyatt: Americans, Americans, wherever you are...I wish I had words of comfort to give you, like the warm winds this Nazi general sent down from above. But from me, you will not get comfort, only the cold, agonising truth. And the truth is this great nation has been raped and pillaged by the greatest enemy of our time. They ask you to sell your liberty to purchase your safety. To kneel to the new order, to submit to the winds of change. But, my fellow Americans, they that sow the wind shall reap the whirlwind! You were born in the land of the free! You fought the kings of old and broke them. You gave your lives for the simplest but most essential truth of all: "Give me liberty, or give me death!" In your veins runs the blood of revolutionaries! So tonight, brandish your guns, your knives and your fists! Seek out your oppressors wherever they are and tell them "We don't want nothing, not a thing from you". Tonight, we show those that sow the wind that we are the whirlwind!
  • Sidekick: Should he survive 1946, he fits this archetype to BJ's hero.
  • Survivor's Guilt: If he survives 1946 he tells BJ he made the wrong choice, that BJ choose an inexperienced rookie over a seasoned veteran. At one Wyatt's inexperience got several people killed, and he thinks if Fergus had been there, he would've known what to do.
  • The Stoner: After he finds a sheet of acid, he starts experimenting with the drug a lot more. Nobody particularly cares for his stoned-out observations.
  • Took a Level in Badass: The second he is spared vivisection by Deathshead he instantly goes up a level. He definitely went up a couple more levels between the escape from Deathshead's compound and 1960. It seems the minute B.J. shows up and slaps him he starts leveling up, going from a shaking wreck, to scared but useful on the beach, to kicking ass.

    Anya Oliwa 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/2679ab24360a802440cefa8c81034355.jpg
Introduced in: The New Order
Voiced in English by Alicja Bachleda
Voiced In Japanese by: Sayaka Kinoshita

A Polish nurse working in a family run Asylum who takes care of a catatonic B.J. for 14 years. When the Nazis decide to simply execute all the patients, her parents are killed in the crossfire. B.J. rescues her and eventually leads her to the Kreisau Circle, where she becomes a radio manager for them.

  • Action Survivor: She clearly manages to keep her stride despite everything going on around her. Being also "Ramona" definitely helps. She Takes a Level in Badass in Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus to become a full-fledged Action Girl.
  • All Women Are Lustful: She and BJ are quite amorous, much to the frustration of others in the Kriesau Circle.
    • And in The New Colossus during the New Orleans mission, she admits that the pregnancy is actually turning her on a bit - read the Funny page for more info.
  • Badass Family: Her lover, B.J., is a one-man anti-Nazi army, and Anya herself racks up quite a kill score. Meanwhile, their twin daughters Jess and Soph go on to follow in their parents' footsteps and are the protagonists of Wolfenstein: Youngblood.
  • Determinator: Possibly second only to BJ himself, and especially when BJ himself is what she's determined over.
  • Eating the Eye Candy: A flashback that BJ can have in the asylum upon seeing the bathtub shows that Anya was appreciative of BJ's physique as she bathed him.
  • Expy: In a sense, she's a Polish Catholic version of Shosanna Dreyfus. And like Shosanna, she has her ways of killing Nazis.
  • Femme Fatale: Late on in The New Order, she reads the diary entries of her cousin Ramona to B.J., but it turns out the actions described within are her own. Poles can figure out the twist the moment the entries are added, given the owner's name on the diary. It begins with AN..
  • Good Girls Avoid Abortion: Averted. Her diaries as "Ramona" reveal she became pregnant by one of the Nazis she slept with before murdering. When she confirmed she was pregnant, she forcibly induced a miscarriage. She gladly carries and gives birth to BJ's kids, though.
  • Heroes Want Redheads: Although her red hair is considerably darker than most instances of this trope.
  • Hidden Depths: "Ramona's" diary ultimately reveals that Anya is much more than the damsel in distress she's initially introduced as.
  • Honey Trap: Her primary method of killing Nazis was to seduce them and get them alone so that she could then poison, stab or strangle them.
  • Love Interest: For B.J.
  • Nazi Hunter: It's revealed she was a prominent and much-feared Serial Killer of Nazis long before B.J. ever showed up. No wonder the two of them hit it off so well!
  • Older Than They Look: She is 36 (a dialog reveals she was 16 in 1940), but she looks at least a decade younger.
  • Palette Swap: In Wolfstone 3D, she, like Caroline, looks similar to Gretel Grosse of the original Wolf 3D, but with the weapons of General Fettgesicht (also of the original game).
  • Pregnant Badass: In The New Colossus, she is now heavily pregnant with twins fathered by B.J. — and is still capable of running around playing stabby-stabby with Nazis.
    • When she was "Ramona", she became pregnant with one of her victim's children, and carried it for a while during her Serial Killer days before terminating it.
  • Real Men Love Jesus: Her Catholic side shows here and there.
  • Serial Killer: "Ramona" killed a lot of Nazis between 1946 and 1960. It's heavily implied the feared serial killer hunting "upstanding German men" mentioned in newspaper articles throughout the game was really her.
  • Significant Greeneyed Redhead: Although her red hair is considerably darker than most instances of this trope.
  • The Smart Girl: It's casually mentioned she was working towards a doctorate in archaeology before the war broke out, and she gets to show her smarts quite a bit throughout the game, essentially singlehandedly uncovering the existence of the Da'at Yichud and tracking down Set Roth. Her past as "Ramona" shows that her smarts extended to Nazi killing as well.
  • Spell My Name with an "S": This one's tricky. While her in-game name is rendered as the Russian-sounding "Anya", the correct Polish spelling would be "Ania". The switch is rather pointless since the two names share very little in terms of phonetics, the "j/y" sound being almost inaudible in Polish, since the "ni" compound is virtually always pronounced closer to the lines of the Spanish "ñ", and so, quite ironically, even a gamer with no prior exposure to Polish spelling would probably stand a better chance of reading the name properly were it to be "Ania" rather than "Anya".
    • And just to make things even more confusing, her last name is spelled with a "w", as Polish ortography would have it be, rather than a "v". It should be noted that the Polish script is pretty much the only major Latin-based Slavic alphabet to use "w" in place of "v". Why the developers would opt to mess with the self-evident first name rather than the less-than-obvious last name is anyone's guess. For a somewhat plausible pronunciation of "Oliwa", attach an "-ah" sound at the end of the word "olive".
  • Took a Level in Badass: In The New Colossus she becomes a full-fledged Action Girl and even saves BJ's life on a couple of occasions.
  • Voice with an Internet Connection: In The New Order she stays out of the battle and communicates with B.J. via radio.
  • Weak, but Skilled: She's not a soldier, and laments not being able to kill in a straight fight. However, she was apparently very effective with poisons, garrotes, gasoline, hand grenades, motor cars, etc.
  • Your Terrorists Are Our Freedom Fighters: If it weren't for the fact she's victimizing Nazis, her history as a Serial Killer would make her a villain character.

    Klaus Kreutz 
Introduced in: The New Order
Voiced by Ken Lally

A former Nazi soldier who turned on his government and joined the resistance after his family was killed by the secret police.

  • The Atoner: For his days as a Nazi.
  • Defector from Decadence: Served in the Nazi military with pride until his son was born with a physical disability and thus singled out for death under the regime, leading to his wife also being killed for trying to protect their son, leading Klaus to join the Kreisau Circle.
  • Embarrassing Tattoo: Looks on his Nazi tattoos as these. He's holding on to them as a reminder of what he's done until they can overthrow the Nazi regime, at which point he'll have them removed. He has a Character Death before that can happen though.
  • Expy: To Hugo Stiglitz, after a fashion.
  • Like a Son to Me: It's not explicitly stated, but he acts like this with Max Hass. The one time he gets truly angry with B.J. is after he accidentally triggers Max's trauma by operating a circular saw near him.
  • Morality Pet: Max Hass is this for him, with Klaus treating him like a substitute son. His family was also one to him, considering that he went through great pains to try and protect his disabled son from his fellow Nazis and when he and his wife were killed, Klaus’s love for the Nazis died unceremoniously.
  • The Nicknamer: He always refers to B.J. as "Johnny Cowboy" or some form of it.
  • Not So Stoic: Klaus reacts to almost everything but Max with weary disdain... but when B.J. is fighting the London Monitor, he gets very excited.
  • Redemption Equals Death: After doing a full 180 on Nazi ideology, Klaus is shot during the Nazis raid on the Kreisau Circle's HQ.
  • You Are Better Than You Think You Are: His final words are a pep talk for Max Hass that basically amounts to this.

    J 
Introduced in: The New Order
Voiced by: Leith Burke

An African-American soldier with a talent for playing the guitar. Only appears if Wyatt is alive.

  • Artistic Stimulation: Gives B.J. some drugs, to show him how to really play the guitar.
  • Black Best Friend: For Wyatt and possibly B.J.
  • Do Not Go Gentle: Goes out amidst flames and gunfire playing The Star Spangled Banner on his electric guitar loud enough for all of Berlin to hear.
    "This moment, right now...It's gonna be loud..."
  • Dramatic Irony: He calls B.J. the same kind of guy that they would call when they're forming a Lynch Mob. In New Colossus it's revealed that B.J. has suffered similar mistreatments from his own father because a local black girl instilled in him a sense of morality and rightousness.
  • Facial Horror: The lower part of his face is scarred pretty badly, which he hides with a mask.
  • Face Death with Dignity: He goes out while playing the Star Spangled Banner for all Berlin to hear.
  • Jerkass Has a Point: Highly offensive about it, but, he does have a point that America in the 1930s was hardly a bastion of racial and civil rights. The Nazis aren't some anomaly, they're just the nightmarish culmination of beliefs in racial and cultural purity & supremacy that have been bandied about throughout Europe and America since the days of the British Empire.
    "Really? When I was a kid, I wanted to see a picture show with my mom, but we had to go through the fucking colored entrance. I wanted a hot dog and a lemonade but the sign says, 'We don't serve niggers in this establishment.' You a patriot? Blue-eyed, jarhead, motherfucking Nazi killer that you are, you're still a fucking puppet to the man! You're exactly the kind of type they would have called in come lynching time. You don't get it, do you? Before all this, before the Germans, before the War, back home man, you were the Nazis!"
  • Known Only by Their Nickname: His real name is never brought, though is highly implied he is Jimi Hendrix.
  • Historical Domain Character: It's pretty obvious who this guy is, especially during his Dying Moment of Awesome It's Jimi Hendrix, rattling off his famous rendition of the Star Spangled Banner.
  • Military Moonshiner: He brews acid on his own time that he's willing to share with B.J.
  • Non-Action Guy: J is harmless and offers moral support, but he doesn't appear to actually do anything for the Resistance, preferring to just brew his acid and jam on his guitar all day.
  • Not in This for Your Revolution: If B.J. talks to him in chapter 7, he evidences a scornful attitude towards B.J's patriotism, referencing the Jim Crow laws that were in place in America in the 1930s-40s and explicitly likens white Americans to "Nazis before the Nazis". He makes the comparison even more explicit with B.J, calling him the sort of man that they would have called in for the lynchings before the Nazis took over.
  • The Southpaw: Plays the guitar with his left hand, because he's Jimi Hendrix.
  • Watch It Stoned: Recommends this with his own music...though it's not pot he uses...
  • Younger Than They Look: If he was indeed Jimi Hendrix, he should be eighteen years old then how he appears in the game, though this may be because he is disfigured and has a deeper voice, possibly because it was damaged during the atomic blast.

    Tekla 
Introduced in: The New Order.
Voiced by: Carla Tassara

A schizophrenic but incredibly smart woman obsessed with calculations and the infinite probabilities of the universe. Only appears if Fergus is alive.

  • Action Girl: In her final moments, she takes down 13 Elite Mooks with a bunch of Lugers. She also mentions that she'd already killed 7 by other means earlier in the day.
  • Ambiguous Disorder: She's temperamental, antisocial, obsessive, and possibly delusional given that her predictive models are never actually put into practice.
  • Cessation of Existence: She believes this is what happens to you when you die. Problem is, she also thinks this is what happens to the current version of your consiousness when you sleep. This is why she rarely sleeps.
  • Cloudcuckoolander: She's often more interested in equations the results of certain things than what ever the current situation is at the moment.
  • Cool Chair: She has a rather nicely ornamented metal garden chair that plays a part in every scene she's in.
  • Dual Wielding: After taking some lessons with B.J., she turns out to be a pretty decent gunslinger.
  • Face Death with Dignity: She's very assured about this trope. She feels that it when it comes, you should be ready for it. Her final moments are certainly this when the Nazis storm HQ.
  • The Fatalist: Her obsession with her predictive model is essentially this by a different name. The strong implication is that she's rationalizing the inevitability of her own death with her math.
  • Flat-Earth Atheist: She scoffs at the idea of the soul, claiming it to be "A pointless concept, dreamt up by priests and fairy tale men".
  • Handicapped Badass: It's not a big one but she's a cross-dominant shot (having your dominant hand be opposite from your dominant eye) which can be a pretty big impediment to accurately shooting a firearm. BJ tries to correct this by training her to look through the sights with her non-dominant right eye but when we finally see her shooting she duel wields pistols and shoots from the hip, theoretically sidestepping the problem entirely.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Despite her neurotic tendencies, she shows a softer side to B.J. and her Famous Last Words help seal the deal on what she thinks of him.
    Tekla: I am glad. To have found a friend.
  • Mad Mathematician: Claims to be working on a predictive model that will allow her to know the Nazis' decisions before they make them. It's never made clear if the model actually worked, but even she admits that she could cover the entirety of Berlin with equations and still not learn the ultimate outcome of the war.
  • Motor Mouth: Wakes up BJ in the middle of the night to deliver a breathless, slightly hysterical lecture on the nature of consciousness.
  • Room Full of Crazy: LOADS of papers are all over her room.
  • You Can't Fight Fate: OBSESSED with this. She is convinced that there's only ever one possible outcome to any situation and that if you could somehow know every single variable you could flawlessly calculate the future.

    Bombate 
Introduced in: The New Order.
Voiced in English by: Erik LaRay Harvey (The New Order), Peter Macon (The New Colossus)
Voiced In Japanese by: Yasuyuki Sano

An Namibian soldier taken prisoner by the Nazis at the African front and forced to work in a slave labour camp until rescued by B.J. and joined the Kreisau Circle.

  • Ax-Crazy: He's just as enthusiastic about killing Nazis as B.J. is, something they bond over.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: He is very, very nice. He has killed a lot of nazis.
  • Blood Knight: Brings quite a lot of enthusiasm to a gunfight.
  • Chubby Chaser: He is caught in flagrante delicto with Sigrun in The New Colossus....although the way he brushes her off later implies he might have just seen her as an easy score.
  • Hidden Depths: Beneath his Ax-Crazy tendencies, his constant smile and his friendly demeanor is a man just as traumatized by the war as B.J. is. During one of the hideout missions, he doesn't complain about B.J. making him relocate away from the door because it gives him some time away from his own thoughts.
  • Made of Iron: Survives being shot in the chest several times by Frau Engel during the concentration camp escape.
  • Palette Swap: In Wolfstone 3D, the Game Within a Game in The New Colossus, he is the black-skinned version of the original Wolf 3D's Otto Giftmacher.
  • The Pollyanna: Comparatively. He's been put through the wringer thanks to the nazi regime as much as anyone else (He's met in a concentration camp) but is also relentlessly positive and friendly regardless of the situation.
    Bombate: Life's too sad and miserable to be sad and miserable.
    • He is seen giving advice to Max Hass about keeping a smile on his face, because there's too much pain in the world. This is revealed to be a subversion after BJ's birthday, where he angrily reveals to Max that after seeing his family die and falling into a deep depression, forcing himself to be happy is the only thing that keeps him from falling back "into a deep hole".
  • Your Cheating Heart: After seducing Sigrun, he then proceeds to flirt with many other women, until she develops enough strength to call him out on this.
  • Warrior Therapist: Shows shades of this thanks to his interactions with Max Hass in The New Colossus.

    Bobby Bram 
Introduced in: The New Order
Voiced by: Paul Cassidy

  • Exposition Fairy: Serves as this when he's showing B.J. around Nazi-occupied London, making biting comments of how the Nazis have made life hell for the British civilians.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: He drives a car full of explosives into the London Nautica to give B.J. an opening to infiltrate it
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Depending on one's interpretation despite him having little screen time, aside from his initial bad attitude towards B.J., he's willing to assist with the Kreisau Circle's cause and even serves as B.J.'s Exposition Fairy early in a mission. Plus, Bram loved his late wife Charlotte and misses her terribly as one of the easter eggs found in the game revealed he written a poem addressed to her in her memory. Her death at the hands of the Nazis and his grief over it are what caused his negative attitude and motivated him to join the Kreisau Circle in the first place.
  • Mean Brit: Is abrasive and rude to B.J. the moment B.J. enters the Resistance. Turns out his family is dead and he's about to embark on a suicide mission.
  • We Hardly Knew Ye: The player only really knows Bobby long enough to learn that he is rather ill-tempered and why he is so ill-tempered, resulting in him even managing to having a small Character Arc, when he is way more melancholic and friendlier to B.J. just before his Heroic Sacrifice.

    Max Hass

Max Hass!
Introduced in: The New Order
Voiced by: Alex Solowitz

A mentally-handicapped man found by Klaus behind a dumpster. Klaus takes care of him and treats him like a son.

  • Actual Pacifist: He hates violence and wouldn't hurt anyone unless they hurt Klaus.
  • Big Guy: He's even bigger than B.J.
  • Does Not Like Shoes: Is never seen wearing shoes throughout New Order, which adds to his childlike image.
  • Facial Horror: A significant portion of his skull is literally flattened, and it's implied this is the result of some horrible Nazi experiment on his brain, in which the skull was cut away and the skin just left to heal over the gap.
  • Gentle Giant: Prefers hugging and hiding until Klaus is shot.
  • The Heart: Out of all of the resistance members, he's one of the kindest. Bombate was even willing to back down on slaughtering a pig Max had grown fond of and raised because doing otherwise would severely upset the big guy.
  • Hell Is That Noise: He's scared of loud noises, raising his hands to his ears and crying when B.J. tries to use a buzzsaw.
  • Hidden Depths: As revealed throughout New Colossus, Max is unexpectedly talented in a number of fields, and has a greater understanding of his surroundings than others credit him for.
    • He is able to figure out a complicated philosophical conundrum that Wyatt was trying to solve rather quickly. ',
    • He's also an Idiot Savant when it comes to art, obsessively painting and sketching murals all over the U-boat. When he shows the memorial to Klaus in his room, the Professor, who grew up with a gallery curator for a father, is amazed and can only sit in awed silence.
    • Additionally, he's one hell of a gamer, if his score in the Wolfenstein 3D arcade machine is anything to go by. He even drives Set to Flipping the Table after beating him at chess, and if BJ goes to the club after delivering the warhead to Seth, he can watch Max sink some very difficult trick shots at the pool table, including with the cue behind his back.
    • And apparently he's a very able chef, making what B.J describes as 'hot damn good' banana cream pie for B.J's birthday.
  • Made of Iron: Is shot several times at one point but it doesn't even seem to faze him.
  • Manchild: Possibly due to a portion of his skull/brain seemingly having been sliced into, he behaves like a child. His room in the hideout is full of childish drawings and toys.
  • Morality Pet: For the entire Kriesau circle, and put on full display in The New Colossus, as his devotion to the pig aboard the submarine convinces Bombate not to slaughter it despite needing the food.
  • Pokémon Speak: Only knows how to say his own name. Doesn't stop anyone from chatting with him sometimes.
  • Roaring Rampage of Revenge: Kills several Nazis with his bare hands after Klaus is shot.
  • Smarter Than You Look: His child-like mannerisms, fear of loud noises, and ability to only say his own name give the impression he is a hopeless simpleton. However, The New Colossus shows him to have a stronger apparent understanding of the world around him than even other characters assume. He even manages to beat Set at chess, much to the latter's disbelief.
  • Super Soldier: Possibly. Max repeatedly demonstrates immense strength and durability more characteristic of the grotesque nazi machine men than a mentally disabled surgery victim.
  • Took a Level in Badass: By the time of The New Colossus, Max is a full fledged member of the Kreisau Circle and is actively participating in missions.
  • Unstoppable Rage: When Klaus gets shot, he takes out three Nazis with his bare hands, not even feeling the few bullets he took himself in the process.
  • Why Did It Have to Be Snakes?: Loud noises are enough to make him cry, as B.J. finds out when trying to use a buzzsaw near him. Curiously, this only seems to apply to buzzsaws and other, similar prolonged sounds - he's just fine with gunfire and helicopter noises, but Fergus or Wyatt drilling air holes into the torpedo used to smuggle B.J. onto the U-boat also upsets him. However, when one puts the buzzsaws together with the scar on his skull, it's easy to see why he fears that one noise in particular.

    Set Roth 
Introduced in: The New Order
Voiced in English by: Mark Ivanir
Voiced In Japanese by: Kazuyoshi Hayashi

An elderly member of Da'at Yichud, a secret society of Jewish scientists that invents and designs technology several generations ahead of its time. Until the Nazis reverse engineered several of their works.

  • Alter Kocker: About as Yiddish as you can possibly get without being played by Mel Brooks.
  • Badass Bookworm: He's certainly qualified for the bookworm part, but the badass angle comes in when you realize he was placed in a concentration camp before the war ended twenty years previously. And is still alive.
  • Best Served Cold: Before he was recruited into the resistance he knew that he was powerless to do anything immediate about the Nazi regime and their rampant crimes against him and his people. However, the recipe for "super concrete" that he gave to them has a huge flaw deliberately built into it, namely that over time the concrete starts to get increasingly mouldy and porous, meaning that in a couple of decades all of the Nazis' great architectural wonders will be nothing but one great pile of toxic rubble.
  • Cool Old Guy: He's an old man, snarks at BJ, is shown taking care of the other inmates in the concentration camp, and knows how to build super-advanced technology and where to locate a cache of the stuff.
  • Gadgeteer Genius: As part of his plan to escape the concentration camp you find him in, he's made a remote capable of taking over the camp's robot guardian. It's smaller than a TV remote and all it needs is a power source. As a member of the Da'at Yichud, he's easily one of the most knowledgeable people in technology on the entire planet.
  • Ink-Suit Actor: In the sequel, he looks even like his own voice actor.
  • The Nicknamer: Mostly towards B.J, referring to him Shimshon (the Hebrew pronunciation of the Biblical Samson) and Yingele ("boy"). He also calls Max goylem in anger at one point — a portmanteau of "goy" and "golem", in reference to his lumbering size.
  • Omnidisciplinary Scientist: Set is not just an amazingly skilled engineer, he's also an insanely skilled doctor and surgeon, even capable of transplanting the head of a cat onto the body of a monkey. Or the head of a paralyzed BJ onto the body of a German Supersoldaten.
  • The Smart Guy: He's an engineering genius, easily in Deathshead's league and possibly even better.
  • This Cannot Be!: Played for laughs when Max beats him at chess. His transition from stunned disbelief to an angrily Flipping the Table is punctuated by escalating cries of "No!"
  • Yiddish as a Second Language: Spouts Yiddish several times and even sings to himself in the language. In Wolfstone 3D, he even says "Oy vey!" when you defeat him in Episode 2.

    Sigrun Engel 
Voiced by: Alyssa Preston

Frau Engel's only daughter. She's overweight, much more sensitive, and far less willing to hurt other people than her mother, and Frau Engel never lets her forget it. Needless to say, she's long had her doubts about Nazism and helps save B.J., joining the resistance movement.

  • Abusive Parents: Her very first scene involves her mother mocking and berating her for her weight, then threatening to slap her with a stick. Frau Engel then publicly humiliates her by berating her about how she will send her to a health camp to lose weight and revealing she's read her diary, which is apparently full of "disgusting things". She then forces an axe in Sigrun's hands and tries to force her to decapitate a prisoner. When Sigrun refuses, Frau Engel slaps her daughter to the floor, does the job herself, and then uses the severed head to pantomime first kissing Sigrun, and then performing oral sex on her.
  • Ambiguously Bi: While her relationship with Bombate makes it obvious that she's attracted to men, Frau Engel's accusations are never proven. So while it's likely, nothing is confirmed vis a vis her attraction to women.
  • Berserk Button: She eventually has enough of being called a Nazi by Grace, and slaps the soul out of her before grabbing her by the throat and forcefully demanding that she never gets called that again.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: Sigrun is a gentle and sweet individual, but when she's pushed, she lets loose, as both Grace and Bombate found out near the end of The New Colossus.
  • Big Beautiful Woman: Despite being quite fat, her tight, cleavage-baring outfit makes her the only Resistance member with any fanservice in her design.
  • Big Eater: Is heavily overweight and in poor physical condition and despite being on a diet, her mother searching her room found a stash of chocolate, cookies, sweets and lemonade. This is very likely to do with her mother's horrible treatment of her, and thus seeking some form of comfort by overeating.
  • Covert Pervert: Contrary to her shy demeanor and the teachings of her mother, who emphasizes sex as pleasurable but chiefly for reproduction in young women, Sigrun is secretly quite lustful; when she learns her mother has gone through her diary and read the "sick things" inside, she's horrified and ashamed. B.J. later finds her and Bombate going at it in an escape pod.
  • Create Your Own Hero: Her mother left her at the hands of the Kreisau Circle... who chose to pick her as an ally, and played key parts such as the decoding of the Odin Codes, which resulted in the Circle capturing the Aufmerzer, which prompted Frau Engel's assassination at the hands of B.J.
  • The Dog Bites Back:
    • After what's implied to be years of emotional abuse, Engel trotting out the secrets in Sigrun's diary for everybody to hear makes her snap and tackle her mother to the ground, fully intending to go at her with the axe they're both wrestling for.
    • After taking all of Grace's crap through the entire game, near the end Sigrun finally has enough, slaps Grace in the middle of a meeting, and then puts her in a chokehold and refuses to let go and until Grace acknowledged that Sigrun is not a Nazi. She then chews out Bombate for having sex with her and then flirting around, stating that she loves him, calling him a "poor idiot" for his flirting, and says that she'll move on but think of him whenever she has A Date with Rosie Palms. And there's nothing he can do about it.
  • Dude, Where's My Respect?: She would rather not be treated and called a Nazi by Grace after her defection.
  • Face Death with Dignity: Believing that she will be killed by the heroes after their capture and the death of Caroline by her mother Frau Engel, instead of begging for her life, she simply asks to "make it quick". This only happens if the player is accompanied with Probst Wyatt III however.
  • Fat Bastard: Inverted, for a first in this series; she's the fattest character in game, but in contrast to her mother Sigrun is a shy, kind woman and a heroic individual who defects and assists the heroes in taking down the Nazis.
  • Hair of Gold, Heart of Gold: She's inherited her mother's blonde hair, but unlike her is a Nice Girl.
  • Heel–Face Turn: She defects to the Kreisau Circle for the abuse she's sustained from her mother, though Grace assumes she's a spy and doesn't like her being in meetings between the Circle and the American resistance. Downplayed, as one gets the impression she was never really evil, just unfortunate enough to be the daughter of the Big Bad and unable to do anything about it until now.
  • Hormone-Addled Teenager: So very much. She is 17 at the time of the game and likes to write erotic stories in her diary, something her mother decides to humiliate her with by telling everyone about. At on point the gang even stumbles onto her and Bombate doing it in the sub.
  • Hope Spot: She has sex with Bombate, and thinks she's found someone who really loves her for once, only to find out he just wanted a one night stand, which she eventually chews him out on.
  • I Am Not My Mother: Personality wise, she couldn't be less similar than Irene Engel
  • Ink-Suit Actor: She is modeled after her own voice actress, Alyssa Preston.
  • Innocent Blue Eyes: Downplayed, as while she's not innocent in sexual ways she is still a very kind hearted person with blue eyes.
  • Innocently Insensitive: In the Wyatt timeline, she asks Anya if they really "allow blacks on this boat", indicating Bombate; she doesn't say it in a pejorative or hateful way, she's just astonished at such a thing.
  • Neck Lift: Well, half of one anyway. She doesn't lift Grace off the ground when she makes her stop calling her a Nazi by force, but she does hold her by the neck with enough force to keep her from breathing.
  • Nice Girl: In spite of Frau Engel's best efforts she's a sweet, kind soul who detests violence.
  • Not So Different: She and BJ actually have a lot in common: They both had physically and verbally abusive parents who hated them for who they chose to be, and tries to make them killers to break them out of it.
  • Meaningful Name: Compared to her mother, she is an angel.
  • Mistreatment-Induced Betrayal: Her mother can mock her weight all day, but once her mother reveals that she read her diary and trots out her sexual fantasies in front of her goons, Sigrun attacks her and chases her out of the room with an axe.
  • Outnumbered Sibling: Looking at the picture of Frau Engel on the board in the bridge of Eva's Hammer reveals that she's the only girl in Fra Engel's six children, meaning she grew up with five brothers.
  • Redemption Equals Life: Not that she needed a great push to defect, but unbeknownst to her, her mother was actually contemplating for having Sigrun killed for being a disgrace to the Aryan stereotype.
  • Shrinking Violet: She's a very meek and gentle individual who's been the target of abuse by her bitch of a mother and later by Grace. She eventually learns how to be confident due to her time on Eva's Hammer.
  • Stout Strength: Downplayed. She's not phenomenally strong, but she's strong enough that A slap from her is enough to send Grace, who's no pushover herself, sprawling to the floor.
  • Took a Level in Badass: Downplayed, but, she goes from being a meek soul who can't stand up for herself, even as Bombate first seduces her and then cheats on her and as Grace taunts her for her Nazi heritage, to finally calling both of them out on their treatment of her and refusing to take it any more.
  • The Un-Favourite: Because of her weight, her mother sees her as a disgrace to both her bloodline and her race, and tells her as such.
  • The Woobie: Her mother is highly abusive towards her for her obesity and aversion to violence, and later after joining the Resistance she's called a Nazi spy by Grace and flees the room crying.
  • You Said You Would Let Them Go: Says this when her mother invokes Exact Words to execute Caroline and Fergus/Wyatt after B.J. surrenders himself. Bonus points for technically still belonging to the Nazis at this point.

    Private Prendergast 
Introduced in: The New Order
Voiced by: Nicholas Tucci

A Private in the US 109th Airborne who took part in the 1946 attack on Deathshead compound.

  • Agony of the Feet: When the floor crumbles on part of Deathshead's compound everyone else who falls comes out of it uninjured except Prendergast who breaks both his feet on the impact.
  • Eyepatch of Power: He goes offscreen for some time in The New Order opening mission, and then reappears wearing a makeshift bloodied eyepatch on his left eye.
  • Killed Offscreen: He escapes the incinerator room with B.J. and Fergus or Wyatt. A dialog in a latter part of the game reveals he joined the Kreisau Circle but died in mission at an unspecified moment between 1946 and 1960.
  • Made of Iron: The beating he takes and survives in the first level is pretty bad and in 1960 both Fergus and Wyatt say he was this but in a tragic subversion they think believing he was indestructible is what made them send him on the mission that got him killed.
  • Only Known by Their Nickname: In the first level Fergus calls him by the latest wound he takes, first "eyepatch" then "broken feet". When mourning him in 1960 he refers to him by his real name though.
  • Trauma Conga Line: In the attack on Deathshead's compound he loses an eye, breaks his feet in a fall that somehow only injures him, almost gets crushed to death, then almost gets incinerated. As he's in said incinerator, thinking it's the end, he snaps into an epic rant to god about why he has to be the victim of this trope.

    Ludwig Kessler 
Introduced in: Wolfenstein: The Old Blood
Voiced by: Urs Remond

  • Crusading Widower: Fights the Nazis after they hanged his wife for spreading anti-regime propaganda.
  • I Die Free: If you save him, he hijacks a Nazi zeppelin and decides to use it to drop his wife's fliers over Berlin, knowing he'll be blasted out of the sky the second he's seen. He tells BJ that it feels blissful to meet death on his own terms, knowing that he'll at least die doing something good.
  • Mercy Kill: If you choose to save Annette instead of her, he's killed by Shamblers and resurrected as one himself, forcing you to shoot him.
  • Rebel Leader: He's the leader of Paderborn's local chapter of the Kreisau Circle.

  • Adam Smith Hates Your Guts: He continues to charge you money for upgrades and ammo just hours before the Nazis are about to destroy the entire town with a super-powered death ray. He says something to the effect of "yes, I have to make money somehow...". It gets even more ridiculous when you realize that he was with the comparatively "good" Kriege brother. The "bad" one, well...

The American Resistance

In general

Introduced in: Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus

    Grace Walker 
Voiced in English by: Debria Wilson
Voiced In Japanese by: Eri Gouda

The leader of the Black Revolutionary Army.

  • Action Mom: She is raising an infant daughter while fighting against the Nazis.
  • Angry Black Man: Or 'woman' in Grace's case. See Jerk with a Heart of Gold below.
  • Ax-Crazy: Messes with B.J. using a dud grenade. Though that could've just been a Secret Test of Character since she knew it was a dud and smiled when she saw B.J.'s immediate response was to shield her accomplice's body with his own.
  • Big Good: Takes over as the leader of the primary resistance and main Mission Control following Caroline's death in The New Colossus.
  • Black Boss Lady: She is African American and a resistance leader.
  • Black Gal on White Guy Drama: Downplayed; whilst it's obvious that having a relationship with a white man and a mixed-race daughter would lead to a huge backlash from both the racist white population of America, the Nazis and even her own people, the subject is never openly discussed.
  • Hypocrite: Hates Nazis because they hate people because of how they were born. Also, she hates and distrusts Sigrun because she's a big-name Nazi's daughter. Or at least, she pretends to.
  • Ink-Suit Actor: Grace bears a very strong resemblance to her actress, Debra Wilson. Except with an Afro. And in Youngblood, she even has a similar hairstyle.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: She is a jerk in particular to anyone she doesn't trust, like B.J. initially and is openly hostile towards Sigrun believing her a spy. However, despite her hostility towards anyone she does not trust, she is still fighting for a good cause against the Nazi regime, therefore her distrust towards ex-Nazi Sigrun can be justified as Properly Paranoid as she is unsure if Sigrun really did perform a Heel–Face Turn. However, it turns out it was another Secret Test of Character all along for Sigrun to make sure she really had defected by showing off her fervent anti-Nazism, even if it means placing Grace in a Neck Lift, which immediately causes Grace to finally show Sigrun some of the respect she deserves, while impressed by her showing off some backbone. Also, there is the fact she genuinely loves her boyfriend Super Spesh and their daughter Abby.
  • Noble Bigot: She is constantly insensitive towards ex-Nazi Sigrun, but at least she does not kick her out of the resistance nor take her prisoner.
  • Odd Couple: In a relationship with Super Spesh, the oddball conspiracy theorist.
  • Politically Incorrect Hero: Against a former Nazi, of all people. She does not give ex-Nazi Sigrun a break under their entourage, but only as a means to get her to show her true colors.
  • Properly Paranoid: Her hostility towards anyone she meets for the first time like B.J. or Sigrun is justified due to having been fighting Nazi threats all her life and not knowing who to trust.
  • Sassy Black Woman: Very much a late 60's/early 70's example.
  • Scary Black Woman: She can be, as seen when she threatens anyone who she sees as a foe, such as when she subjects B.J. to a Secret Test of Character with a dummy grenade.
  • Secret Test of Character: In order to determine who is trustworthy and useful, she likes to subject those she meets for the first time to this whether it's using a dummy grenade on B.J. or pretending to act hostile toward ex-Nazi Sigrun.
  • Sir Swears-a-Lot: Comes in a close second to Fergus in this department, to the point that "motherfucker" is generally her default way of addressing people. And when both of them square off, it's a sight to behold.
  • Tragic Bigot: Her paranoia, trust issues and poor treatment of Sigrun can be excused due to what the Nazis did to her, such as the atomic bomb that dropped in New York, leaving her home destroyed and her hand scarred.
  • You Got Spunk: After Sigrun throttles her after having enough of Grace's poor treatment of her, Grace finally rewards her the respect she long deserved and impressed by Sigrun showing off some backbone, which was implied Grace was actually to get her to do by deliberately heckling her for being an ex-Nazi until she got her blood boiling and proved her motivated and effective usefulness to the resistance's cause.

    Super Spesh 

Voiced by: Don McManus

Norman Caldwell, aka "Super Spesh", was a Lawyer who quit and joined Grace's resistance movement the day he got her acquitted from the FBI. He's also a very unhinged conspiracy nut.

  • Black Gal on White Guy Drama: Invoked; Super Spesh subtly brings up that his love for Grace and their mixed-race daughter Abby classifies him as being as much a "sexual deviant" as a gay man in the eyes of the Nazis or the Klan.
  • Boom, Headshot!: Inflicts this on a Nazi officer who recognized an undercover B.J. Has this done to him by Frau Engel from behind when he least expected it during an escape plan once B.J. gets captured, and another round for good measure when a soldier points out his body's still twitching.
  • Bunny-Ears Lawyer: He was indeed a lawyer and is a nutty conspiracy theorist, but he is a member of Grace's resistance movement.
  • Conspiracy Theorist: Spesh is every bit of a conspiracy theorist from believing The Reptilians are disguising as human beings to the U.S. government keeping the secret of an alien flying saucer.
  • Discriminate and Switch: A variation; in his introductory cutscene, he mentions that the only white people in America interested in resisting the Nazis are "deviants". This sets the player up to believe Super Spesh is gay — then it turns out he's in a relationship with Grace, and this cross-racial attraction is what defines him as a "deviant" in the eyes of society.
  • Distinction Without a Difference: He tends to say stuff like this. One example being, "I'm not saying it was a flying saucer from outer-space, but it was clearly of extraterrestrial origin."
  • Famous Last Words: "It was space aliens, man" - even Grace laughs when she hears about it.
  • Hope Spot: Spesh tries to rescue B.J. from a maximum-security prison. He fails and they both die, though it turns out that this did allow the Resistance to save B.J's head and transplant it.
  • Idiot Ball: Uses his status as a (former) lawyer to badger the everliving hell out of the Nazis to let him see a captured B.J. before attempting to hatch an escape plan under their noses. He should've considered the fact that pissing the Nazis off so liberally and being recognized as a member of the resistance / as a "deviant" would've gotten him on their shit list and pays for it because he didn't bother checking the door behind him when he enacted his plan.
    • And that's not even considering the fact that the Nazi's would've been listening/watching him the whole time he was talking to his "client", so practically shouting his plan at BJ didn't help.
  • In the Blood: If you manage to find the file in the American Resistance Headquarters that is a postcard from his father back in Roswell, who is shown to be an alien conspiracy theorist just like his son.
  • Odd Couple: He's in a relationship with Grace, the cool, collected and scarily level-headed resistance leader.
  • Undignified Death: Shot in the back of the head by Engel, mocked and derided as an "idiot", and unceremoniously shot again when one of the Nazi soldiers points out his body is still twitching. Not a great way to go out of the world by any measure.

    Horton Boone 
Voiced in English by: Christopher Heyerdahl
Voiced In Japanese by: Hiroshi Shirokuma

A cynical Christian socialist resistance leader in the U.S.

  • Badass Preacher: Subverted; he wears the clothes of a priest and quotes Bible verses at the enemy (modified to be anti-Nazi), but isn't actually one himself.
  • Chummy Commies: He is a Marxist who rants to Blazkowicz about how "Wall Street" sent "the children of the proletariat" off to die in the war, but he never loses his cheery demeanor and is still an ally in Blazkowicz's fight against the Nazis.
  • Deep South: Neck so red that Texas farmboy B.J. Blazkowicz can call him a hillbilly without an ounce of hypocrisy.
  • Gargle Blaster: "Ol' Horton's Special", a mere cup of which can reduce an average man to legless, black-out drunkenness. He downs the stuff freely with no effect and is impressed that B.J. can handle three cups before passing out.
    Paris Jack: Don't spill that shit on the table, Horton, it'll eat right through it.
  • Homage: Not only to the real-life historical figures of the "Sewer Socialism" movement that rose up during and between the world wars, his character is possibly also one to The Reverend Horton Heat.
  • Secret Test of Character: Offering the above Gargle Blaster to B.J. as they argue over each others' moral failings during the war. B.J. still being able to talk after handling three shots of the stuff impresses Horton enough to lend his own resources to the Kreisau Circle.
  • Sixth Ranger: He and his team join the Kreisau Circle late in the game's story.

    Paris Jack 
Voiced by: Antonio D. Charity

One of Horten's resistance members and in his own words a hell of a clarinet player

  • Gadgeteer Genius: Was able to reprogram/salvage a Panzerhund while in the New Orleans lockdown.
  • Homage: To Thelonius Monks' time in the Paris Jazz scene.
  • Dissonant Serenity/While Rome Burns: Sniper shots, machine gun fire, and B.J. and Horton screaming and throwing chairs around, and Paris just keeps on tooting on that horn, only stopping to warn Horton to not spill his hooch on the table. It'll eat right through the wood.
  • Street Musician: Doesn't like to toot his own horn, except literally.

Jess and Soph Blazkowics

Introduced in: Wolfenstein: Youngblood

Twin daughters of B.J. and Anya.

     General 
  • Action Girl: Given who their parents are, this should come as no surprise. Jess is an expert with weapons, while Soph is a brawler though gameplay-wise there is no mechanical difference between the two.
  • Affectionate Nickname: They refer to each other as "Arthur" (Jess) and "Kenneth" (Soph), taken in-universe from a book series that they're a fan of.
  • Always Identical Twins: Averted. The pair are fraternal twins. Jess seems to have taken after her mother, with dark brown hair she wears at neck length. Soph has her daddy's blonde hair, buzzed short like him.
  • Badass Adorable: They are quite cute and very good fighters as well.
  • Beauty Is Never Tarnished: Averted. After their betrayal by Julie Brandt and the subsequent fight approximately halfway through the story, both twins have black eyes for the remainder of the game.
  • Contrasting Sequel Main Character: While BJ was a war weary cynic, Jess and Soph are more boisterous and youthful. BJ preferred a stealthy one man infiltration, while Jess and Soph seem to be a tag-team who don't yet know the meaning of stealth.
  • Good Is Not Soft: They may be compassionate and honorable towards their friends, but show no mercy to Nazis and seem to rather enjoy "sending them to hell"
  • Guns Akimbo: Downplayed in comparison to their father; they can only dual-wield pistols.
  • Powered Armor: They use power armor that grants them various powers.
  • Sleeves Are for Wimps: At least in the first trailer, both twins wear tank tops that show off their buff arms. It seems to more be Sophie's thing, as Jess prefers to wear her leather jacket. Averted in the actual game where they wear Da'at Yichud power suits.

     Jess 
  • Beware the Nice Ones: She may be nicer and less tempermental than her sister, but still has no problem blowing Nazis brains out.
  • Cold Sniper: B.J. is training Jess to be one of these, as shown in the opening cutscene.

     Soph 
  • Badass Bookworm: Soph wants to pursue a career writing stories.
  • Boyish Short Hair: Wears her hair buzzed.
  • Boxing Battler: Technically kickboxing of some sort, but Anya trains Soph in unarmed combat in the opening cutscene.
  • Contralto of Danger: Her voice is noticably deeper than any other female character in the game, reflecting her more masculine persona.
  • Dead Guy Junior: Soph is named after BJ's beloved mother, Zofia. Soph's just a nickname.

     Abby Walker 

Daughter of Grace Walker and Super Spech.

  • Black and Nerdy: African-American and the brains to Soph and Jess's brawns.
  • Dead Girl Junior: She has adopted her father's nickname, Super Spesh, for herself.
  • Eye Scream: Near the climax of the third game, she ends up having her left eye gouged out by a knife while fighting against Julie Brandt.
  • Jumped at the Call: after she, Jess and Soph find out B.J. went to Paris on a secret mission, without any hesitation Abby decides to go and find him, with the Twins deciding to tag along seconds after she had made her decision.
  • Plot-Relevant Age-Up: is first seen as an infant in Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus; merely as a Satellite Character to her mother, and is a teenager working for the FBI by the time Wolfenstein Young Blood rolls around.
  • Mission Control: Acts as this for Jess and Soph, especially after the Brandts betray them.
  • Straight Man: To Jess and Soph's antics.
    Abby: You guys are weird.
  • Teen Genius: is regarded as such since she works with her mother in the FBI, having created an audioscope and researched Set Roths' notes from Da'at Yichud to create the twins' Powered Armor along with several other projects. Lampshaded by the twins who say that Grace wants Abby to join the advanced research division.
