Hans Raeder is a Eurosolo, a longtime associate of Erich Kessler, and the chief enforcer and black operations coordinator for International Electric and the Berlin Industrial Investment Group. Raeder cut his teeth in government service, running covert operations for the EEC. Erich Kessler became acquainted with him in 2010, and considered his talents wasted in government service. Raeder has been a fixture of IEC ever since.

Raeder handles those hands-on black operations which are considered to be too critical or sensitive to assign to standard black ops teams. He is an expert solo, and a tough, efficient man. He is also an excellent diplomat and negotiator and he is frequently sent with corporate negotiating teams as insurance, or dispatched to handle diplomatic missions himself. Raeder is in the highest confidence of both Erich Kessler and Colin Powers, and he spends much of his time jetting back and forth between Germany and the United States, handling assignments for both men. Raeder is also the commander of IEC's standard black operations troops, and he organizes and trains many of the teams and plans most of the important missions himself. Black operations at IEC are kept completely separate from standard military operations. Consequently, Raeder and Max Von Bruckner (commander of IEC military forces— see below) seldom rub shoulders.

Raeder is German by birth and has always lived in Germany. When he travels internationally he usually stays out of the country only long enough to complete whatever his assignment is. When abroad he usually doesn't stay at company lodging, choosing instead to travel on expense account and stay at fine hotels. Because of his excellent record IE will indulge him to any extent necessary. Raeder is a large man in his late thirties. He has a great deal of cyberware, but he keeps it camouflaged under RealSkinn™ and realistic sculpting. He is well versed in black operations and armed and unarmed combat.[1]
