- "Is it just me, or does it seem that we're a wee bit late to the part? I didn't sign up for this shite."
- — Drostan after knowing the Mittleburg mission.
Drostan Hynd was originally a history professor, who got sought out by Heinrich Himmler to go to Heligoland to search for a specific artifact for the Nazi party. He was instructed to find an item belonging to the knights of the Crusade, without further details. Drostan, who was short on money at the time, agreed to do the job. To Himmler's dismay, Drostan could only find bones and carvings of a 1st century A.D. Germanic tribe, and nothing that would relate to Emperor Frederick Barbarossa or medieval knights. Drostan, however, did find an urn filled with scrolls, which belonged to a mad monk that once resided on this island. Noticing the detailed artwork within the scrolls, he decided to keep them to himself, and upon realizing that the Nazis wouldn't let him leave in one piece, he snuck out on one night and returned to land via a fishing boat. He would later sell the urn close to a museum, and make some money in the process. Over the years, Drostan continues to investigate and steal artifacts that the Nazis have their sights on; one notable location he went to was the Merkers Salt Mine. Eventually, he was given a choice: to go to jail for his thievery, or join the Monuments, Fine Arts, and Archives Program to reclaim stolen art by the Nazis. He chose to join the MFAA and was assigned to Major Hank Rideau's team to retrieve arts throughout World War II. Drostan told Rideau about his past involvement with Himmler, at which point he was told to keep quiet so that the team wouldn't jump to conclusions.
