Heinrich works for a major international publishing house that should not be named here. He is quick in thought, elegant in gestures, romantic in morals and deep in eye-to-eye looks. Instead of finishing his business degree at the University of Alabama Business School, he chose to invest his time into repeated public humiliation of the local Ku Klux Klan. When they finally dissolved, he migrated to Europe and landed up in Berlin heading up the Peng! Division on bureacracy. He is also an excellent cook of Mongolian cuisine.
