Baron Von Dorf is the main antagonist in Valiant Hearts: The Great War.
He is a leader of the German forces at the western front of World War I.
He's also an obvious parody of the real german field marshall, August Von Mackensen. As Baron and August both have the same hat, uniform, and physical apperance.
He is shown to be selfish, and values his own life over the lives of his fellow German soldiers.
He is shown to be status obsessed as during later events in the game, he is demoted and according the narrator, this was worse than death.
He also seems to like wine as he always has a glass full of wine in his hand whenever he isn't in combat.
