Conrad created his company in S.1193. He is considered a "merchant of death", a weapon dealer who made a fortune during the Hundred Days War, despite being a relative newcomer.
Conrad is an arrogant man, and with the fame and power he amassed through the use of his artifact he thinks himself untouchable.
In November, S.1203,[Note 1] during the Lusitania's maiden voyage, Hermann Conrad holds a masquerade ball for influential people in Erebonia, hiring a company of Northern Jaegers for security. Kevin Graham infiltrated the party to retrieve the Fool's Locket and return it to the Septian Church.
After obtaining the artifact and dealing with the party's guards, Kevin faces Conrad and arrests him for unauthorised possession of, and illegal use of, the artifact. Kevin then knocks him out and escapes with his unconscious body from the Lusitania, sending him and the artifact to Arteria on Kevin's Merkabah.
