Kranz has a cold and cruel personality and will do anything for the success of a mission. Kranz has been shown to stop the violent actions of Shark when Shark acts out of control. He was also allowing Shark to kill people Takeo met in the past without letting Takeo know. He hates dealing with lower ranking experiments.

He is very arrogant about his strength and claims that DA-5 was made just for him. Though it is revealed by Takeo later on that Kranz was very scared of Dr. Aris. Kranz is usually shown as calm but lost his cool and became angry when Regis managed to injure him.


Kranz, the leader of DA-5 was created by Dr. Aris. He is usually shown on the sidelines and doesn't fight with weak opponents. He revealed that the other members of DA-5 were originally created for him to absorb.

Plot Overview

Kranz debuts commanding his team to victory on an operation in the mountainous range. Then he takes his team to South Korea, on the base of their next mission - to find out about Crombel's work there. He remains on the sidelines as Tao does most of the finding and locating work, Shark and Hammer busy themselves intending to eliminate the children. However, he intervenes the first encounter between Shark and Regis to compel M-21 to come with them.
Kranz interrogates M-21 about Crombel's activities and his mission but gets no appropriate reply. After Shark brings the captured children, he permits Shark to annihilate the witnesses, dismissing M-21's offer of exchanging info. Seeing M-21 fight against Shark and then Regis take over the fight, he decides to step in to put an end to it. Kranz fights against Regis and overpowers him.
After the arrival of Raizel, Kranz as well as his team, is subjugated to his superior mind control. Kranz manages to get hold of a D and absorbs it to break free from the control. Kranz then drains the power of Shark as it appears that he cannot defeat Raizel in his normal state. He then turns to Tao to absorb him as well. But Ik-Han requests Raizel to save Tao who, unlike others, has tried to protect them. Kranz is too annoyed at the delay and seizes Tao to absorb him without D. Tao slides and getting free, he binds Kranz with cords and shocks him with electricity. At this, Kranz attacks Tao, however, a sudden command from Raizel to halt stupefies him. Later, Kranz is engulfed and annihilated by Raizel's Blood Field.
