WWII AU: Erik Lehnsherr is the son of a wealthy industrialist and his wife, raised for a time in Germany and then living for the rest of his childhood in southern England. He grew up with the friendship of Charles, bethebettermen, who was the son of one of the hired help. They also confided in each other about their abilities, becoming even closer after that, including an undeniable but secret attraction. Erik dropped out of college in the late 30s to join the British Army, becoming trained as an officer and eventually going into intelligence. He was highly valued because of his experience with German culture and frequently asked to go undercover on intelligence gathering missions into Germany before the war. But once it started, he was tasked with a permanent assignment of becoming a German officer--it was considered a suicide mission, if anything at all went wrong, he was on his own. If he encountered Allied soldiers, they would still fire on him. He was able to blend well for a long time until his cover was blown somehow, whether because of his British citizenship, his family's Jewish heritage, or his significant ability, he came into the hands of Doctor Klaus Schmidt, who was delighted to have such a powerful specimen in his grasp. He knows Charles is close and listening, and if he could get out on his own, they could make it back on their own.
