One of my most favorite characters ever. His methods are quite brutal (Not preventing westerlands nuclear attack on civilians), but saved many more lives because of this. He even chewed fleet admirals and Kaiser for their sensless sacrifice of human lives for the sake of glory. And despite he is hated by others and constantly put under suspicion he is one of the most loyal characters. Paul von Oberstein is not loyal to one person. He is loyal to institution of empire. If Rainhard would be a baggage to the empire and his people, i bet he would remove him no matter the consequences, or his life.

though Oberstein does not value his own life he does value the lives of others... in a statistial way and for that I commend him I also like how he stayed true to his ways even to the end....

Oberstein can be cold, calculating, distant and loveless; but he can also be seen as a patriot - as cruel as his acts unquestionably were his end usually suggests to me that he isn't doing it for solely selfish reasons.

That and I love that he had a dog and even ignoring that he's just a magnificent bastard.
