BiographyEdit

Early LifeEdit

He was an SS-Oberstgruppenführer and General der Polizei (Senior Group Leader and General of Police) as well as chief of the Reich Main Security Office. He was also Stellvertretender Reichsprotektor (Deputy/Acting Reich-Protector) of Bohemia and Moravia and President of the ICPC and Reichsprotektor of all occupied territories, and assisted Arthuur Seyss-Inquart in crushing the rebellion in Africa with appalling massacres.

Season OneEdit

During the cold war with Japan, Heydich planned an assassination on the Japanese crown prince in order to cause a war with Japan. When Rudolph Wegener was arrested by Obergruppenfuhrer John Smith for giving German military secrets to the Japanese, Heydrich personally traveled to America to have Wegener transferred to his security. He had also planned to have Wegener kill Hitler in order to have the war. However John Smith had found out, and warned Hitler of Heydrich's plan. While hunting with Smith,he tried to gain Smith's support, however he refused. When he was expecting a phone call from Wegener, he actually got a call from Hitler and was immediately arrested by Smith seconds later.

Season TwoEdit

While Hitler is on his death bed, Smith misleads a imprisoned Heydrich into thinking Germany and Japan are already at war, leading Heydrich to confirm what Smith has suspected: a conspiracy to create a pretext for war with the Japanese exists among the Nazi ranks. Smith executes Heydrich, but not before learning he is not the mastermind behind the rush to war.
