Origin[edit | edit source]

At first glance Isidor "Izzy" Einstein (1880 - 1938) was just another face in the crowd and because he originally wasn't a police officer made him all the better to blend in when he did become one. During the age of Prohibition in the United States there just wasn't enough police forces to enforce the new law so they started to hire anyone they could. Einstein became Prohibition Agent number one and soon his partner Moe Smith joined in as well. With their every man look and Einstein's ability to speak English, Yiddish, Hungarian, German and Polish the pair became the officers with the highest arrest and conviction rates shutting down illegal speakeasies.

Effects[edit | edit source]

Einstein grew up speaking Yiddish and English but no one, not even his wife, could believe it when he started speaking fluent Hungarian, Polish and German so soon after joining the force. The determination and pride Einstein took in being a police officer was pushed into his police issued holster and when he was caught in a hard place, his disguise nearly uncovered, by a Polish crime boss he found he could speak the language as if he grew up with it.

Collection[edit | edit source]

After being collected a Warehouse Agent attempted to use the artifact to collect a few German based artifacts, upon returning Agent Nielson discovered that the Agent could no longer speak English even after the holster was neutralized.
