Pfalzer. Pfalzer was created by the pseudonymous Ugandan author “Night-Hawk” and appeared in at least two stories in the Uganda Herald in 1919, beginning with “The Air Pirate” (Uganda Herald, Mar. 28, 1919).

Pfalzer is a tall, blond German pilot and “mad political desperado” who after the end of World War One avenges himself on the enemies of his country by flying a dead black “fifty-ton Lanz Rumpler seaplane,” arming it with guns and bombs, and robbing and sinking ships at sea. At length he is cornered and shot down.
