During the unrest on Odin, leading up to the Imperial Civil War, in 797 UC (488 IC / 3597 CE), Lt Commander Hauptmann took part in Anton Ferner's attempt to assassinate Reinhard von Lohengramm. He later served the Lippstadt League and, but worked aboard Geiersburg Fortress as an informant for Oberstein and the other forces loyal to Lohengramm, helping incite uprisings among Lippstadt troops and getting Commodore Ansbach arrested. (LOGH: 'The Lippstadt Conspiracy', 'The Fall of Goldenbaum')
Later, by 801 UC (3 NIC / 492 IC / 3601 CE), Hauptmann had been promoted to captain and was serving the New Galactic Empire. That year, he took part in putting down a prison riot on Heinessen. (LOGH: 'Planet of Confusion')
Hauptmann is both a German name and the word for "captain", which is probably a reference to the character's rank in the Imperial Fleet.
