Peter Hertz was a young boy from Berlin, Germany during the 1940's who would watch Andre Toulon's puppet shows with his father.

Puppet Master III

Peter's house was raided and his mother was arrested by the Gestapo Nazis because she was from Poland and they claimed she was a spy. Peter and his father escaped and became fugitives living in an old bombed-out building. After Toulon escaped from the Nazis he met them there and they became fugitives together. Peter was a big fan of Toulon's puppets especially Six-Shooter and helped by bringing Toulon supplies and food.

Peter's father turned Toulon in to the Nazis in exchange for freedom of his wife and Peter helped Toulon escape and exact revenge on Major Kraus. Peter escaped to Switzerland where his relatives lived and Toulon escaped to America. Peter changed his name to Eric Weiss and wrote to Toulon many times but they never saw each other face to face.

Puppet Master: The Legacy

When Eric was an old man he went to the Bodega Bay Inn to look for Toulon, but all he found was the puppets and a tape recorder which he had left for him. Maclain an assassin breaks into the hotel and tortures Eric trying to get Toulon's secrets out of him so she can know how to kill the puppets and free their souls. Eric shoots her and unknown creatures enter his room to kill him, he shoots one of them and what happened after that is unknown. 




  • It may have been the puppets from Retro Puppet Master that sent Maclain for him as she claims that she was sent by the 'creatures Toulon left behind'.
