Anton Fassbinder is a lumber and shipping magnate and one of the most powerful men in New Brevik. Initially an enemy of the New Brevik Travelers due to their conflict with his relatives the Jannsens, Fassbinder began to appreciate the group's resourcefulness and tenacity.

Fassbinder lives on Crisis Island, near New Brevik,  in a 5,000 square foot timber hall with a slate roof and an elaborate system of gardens, statues, and pools around it. His family's guards traditionally wear all black armor, and he has enough of them to constitute something of a private army.
