Stefan Lehmann is the son of Pietr Lehmann and a woman Pietr met while in School. His father didn't approve of the girl, yet Pietr married her against his wishes. They later divorced but not before she was found to be carrying Stefan. Pietr had him removed and raised artifically in a lab. One of Stefan's most noticeable characteristics is his albinoism. He eventually kills his own mother, who was also an albino. Stefan is passed to Howard DeVore via Berdichev for an informal apprenticeship. He later becomes DeVore's second in command.
