Blade is the Leader of the puppets and is one of the few puppets, along with Pinhead and Jester, to appear in all of the Puppet Master movies to date. He is the only puppet to have appeared on all of the VHS, DVD and Blu-ray covers of the Puppet master Movies. He is 1'9", weighs 4 lbs, and bears a gothic-styled appearance. He has a gaunt pale face with seemingly empty black eye sockets and long white hair and wears a black trench coat and wide-brimmed hat.
It was revealed in Puppet Master III: Toulon's Revenge that Blade was created by André Toulon and modeled after Gestapo Major (Sturmbannführer) Krauss. He has the soul of Dr. Hess, a German scientist and medical doctor who wanted to work with Toulon. He was used for evil under puppet masters Neil Gallagher, André Toulon (in Puppet Master II) and Dr. Magrew, all three of whom he later turned against. He was used for good under André Toulon, Danny Coogan, Rick Meyers, Peter Hertz A.K.A. Eric Weiss, and Robert Toulon whom he each served loyally. Blade has a sharp hook for his left hand and a knife for his right hand. He sometimes has spike-shaped "bullet eyes" that pop out of his sockets from time to time.
