Origin

The LZ 129 Hindenburg was a German passenger airship manufactured from 1931-1936 by Luftschiffbau Zeppelin. It flew for just over a year before it caught fire and was destroyed on May 6th, 1937 in an event that was known as the Hindenburg Disaster. There were 36 fatalities in total, 13 passengers, 22 crewman and 1 ground worker. It is notable in that the cause of the fire was never established, despite several hypothesises being put forward. The event is generally assumed to be the catalyst for the ending of the airship era.

EffectsEdit

Holding the brace will grant the user the ability to fly as long as they retain a firm grasp on it. Releasing it during flight will cause the user to immediately drop. However, holding it and flying for an extended period of time will cause the user to spontaneously combust and lose their flying abilities, causing them to drop back down to Earth in a ball of flame, leaving nothing but a charred corpse.

CollectionEdit

In 2014, the cross brace was stolen from the Zeppelin Museum Friedrichshafen in Friedrichshafen, Germany. Not long following the robbery, several citizens noted a human-like figure flying over the city, alerting the Warehouse 13 agents to the situation. During the trip from the US to Germany, a charred corpse was found after a great ball of fire fell from the sky. The artifact was snagged after a short investigation in the city.
