~ Zemph warning Helga not to take the Dagger of Warding.

Professor A. Zemph, simply known by his surname Zemph, is a minor antagonist in Return to Castle Wolfenstein. He was a scientist of the SS Special Projects Division working with the SS Paranormal Division.

He has a journal which must be picked up and optionally read by the player.


Serving under Helga von Bulow, Zemph was charged with performing the extraction process on the Dark Knights to convert them into undead soldiers of the German Army.

Based on his notes, Zemph was displesed that Helga was put in charge of exploring Wulfburg Catacombs and hold resentment of von Bulow's unleashing the zombies in the catacombs, which Zemph rightly credited to Helga's increasing recklessness and disregard for proper precautions.

Zemph accompanied Helga to the Wulfburg Catacombs and finally to the Defiled Church where they discovered the corpse of Third Dark Knight. Helga ordered him to extract the fluids from the corpse while constantly scolding and hurrying him to which he always received with humility. When they left the church and wandered to the Tomb of Olaric just outside the Church, Zemph was shocked to learn that Helga desired to obtain the Dagger of Warding. Zemph warned her that taking the dagger would unleash something far worse than zombies in the catacombs and threatened to report her to the SS High Court of Inquiry. In response, Helga shot and killed Zemph before taking the dagger, only to unleash Olaric and be brutally killed.
