Frau Irene Engel is the secondary antagonist of the video game, Wolfenstein: The New Order and the main antagonist of the sequel, Wolfenstein: The New Colossus. She had a "boyfriend" in The New Order but I will explain how she can count and she is potrayed in The New Colossus.
Who is she?
Irene Engel was the second-in-command of Willhelm Strasse and was a psychotic woman.
What has she done?
She had done many many terrible things. She had the control over Ausschwitz and let her henchmen torture innocent people that are from other countries. She is even shown to presumbly kill a infant, because some of the innocent prisoners gave her his baby and she let her henchmen take it away, so very acceptable that the infant was brutally killed. She executes her prisoners in a very brutal and disturbing way. In The New Colossus she got even worse. She tortured BJ and his friend Caroline Becker. She knocks Becker down and is going to kill her but her daughter came in and don't want her to do it. Then Engel mocks her daughter of being fat and weak. She then forces her own daughter to commit murder and kill Becker, mentally tortures her. When she refuses to do it, Engel tells her it is going to have consequences. So Engel do it herself and behead Becker, which she manically laughs about.
Freudian Excuse? Mitigating factors?
Now there is a complicated thing. In The New Order she had a lover named Bubi, which she is seen really loving and freaks out after BJ kills him. But in The New Colossus it isn't a thing anymore and she seems to be over it. She not even wants to avenge his death, just avenge herself because BJ destroyed her face. Plus, that she is shown to be not caring or loving anyone anymore, not even her own daughter which she threats like garbage and abuses her. I say she is beyond that and way over the moral event horizon with her crimes and not showing love anymore, not even to the deceased Bubi.
The Wolfenstein-franchise didn't have that many stand out or heinous villains. I don't even know if the old games are connected to The New Order and The New Colossus. But I think it's a reboot, because Caroline Becker was also in the Wolfenstein 2009 but died in that game and have a different story. The only villain that is also very heinous and gruesome, is Willhelm Strasse, who badly tortures and killed people and making gruesome experiments on them. But I think Engel is more unique compared to him and stand out in her own way. Like I said, leading an entire holocaust and killing an infant with no remorse.
I'm for "yes". What is your opinion on her?
