Christopher's father Wolfgang Schmidt committed suicide when his son was very small, an event which scarred him for life. He grew up having delusional visions of his father in an S.S. uniform, taunting him in every situation. After the Vietnam War, he became obsessively devoted to peace, and operated as the armored Peacemaker both alone and for the American government. His visions eventually drove him insane, leading to his death in Parador, a death he welcomed.
