Jurgen is a vampire serving as the main antagonist of Night of the Raving Dead. He is also a minor character in Chariots of the Dogs, What's new, Beelzebub?, The Tomb of Sammun-Mak & The City that Dares Not Sleep.


[edit] Character detail

Jurgen runs the club The Zombie Factory from his castle in Stuttgart. His plan involves putting living partygoers through a death-trap and capturing their souls. He sells those souls to hell (what he gets in return is never made clear) and uses the remains as zombies for his army of the undead. The arrangement involves the souls being picked up for further transport by T.H.E.M.. When Sam & Max defeat him, his own soul goes through the same process. He is briefly seen in the UFO in Chariots of the Dogs and again as the receptionist in hell in What's new, Beelzebub?. During the wedding of Sybil and Abraham Lincoln he tries catching the flowers but is stop by Max who catches them in mid-air.

Jurgen speaks English with a thick German accent that's almost impossible to make out at times. He is obsessed with being hip (even if only his minions think so) and his behavior tends toward stereotypical emo. Jurgen's side-projects include creating his monster.

In 1901, Sam and Max's great-grandfathers, Sammeth and Maximus, discover a still-living Jurgen inside the tomb of Sammun-Mak, trapped on a wall as a bas-relief by a Moleman curse, where he claims he was an archaeological student who has been stuck for decades. He promises to help them reach the Devil's Toybox if they free him, but double-crosses them and flees when they are trapped as bas-reliefs themselves in the process.

Later on, he is a passenger on the train Sammeth and Maximus are riding back to New York, and is therefore one of the suspects in their search for the thief who stole the Devil's Toybox from their compartment. One of the Molemen had placed a vampire curse on him, so his compartment is filled with garlic and crosses to ward off vampires, so that the curse can not attract one to bite him and turn him into a vampire himself. Sammeth and Maximus use the promise of the vampire counter-curse to lure him into another car and into the path of a vampire elf, causing him to become a vampire and leaving them free to search his compartment, now that he is repulsed by its anti-vampire protections. Upon searching his trunk, they find it empty, causing him to reveal that he had stolen it from Nicholas St. Kringle (who in turn had stolen it from Sammeth and Maximus), only to have it stolen by someone else. He also revealed that he had been working for and failed Yog Soggoth.

Jurgen also makes a cameo appearance in The City that Dares Not Sleep where he has returned from Hell along with Satan to film a report in which Satan discredits all claims that he was responsible for the giant Max rampage. Strangely, Jurgen appears in his 1901 garb when helping Satan film instead of his more modern "Goth" Garb. This is more than likely due to the developers not wanting to import an old model for just one scene; Sam lampshades this by pointing out that the costume is "probably cheaper."
