"I'm relatively new here. But I'm pretty sure breaking into someone else's locker is against the rules." - Garrett to Scott McCall
"Good guy, bad guy. Since when has anything ever been so black and white." - Garrett to Malia Tate
Garrett Douglas, also known as Hauptmann (German for 'Captain') or Der Soldat ('The Soldier') is an Alpha Löwenmensch, was a Nazi soldier in World War II and sought to wield the Wild Hunt for his own ends. Hauptmann was wounded by a Ghost Rider though he survived. He was captured then held captive by the Dread Doctors, the soldier becoming imbued with a Ghost Rider's power in the process then being used for the Doctors' own ends over the next seventy years. In Season 5, Theo Raeken, the Doctors' minion, used him to resurrect chimeras, Hayden Romero, Corey Bryant, Tracy Stewart and Josh Diaz to form his Pack. After the deaths of the Dread Doctors and the Beast of Gévaudan, Hauptmann escaped from his vat prison. In Season 6, Garrett Douglas poses as a physics teacher at Beacon Hills high school and moonlights as a serial killer, murdering people in Beacon Hills to devour their pineal glands to amplify his powers for the Wild Hunt. When the Ghost Riders come to Beacon Hills, Douglas spies on Scott's Pack as they attempt to fight back against the ghosts. He reveals his identity, then kills a Ghost Rider devouring the pineal gland, gaining the full power of a Ghost Rider, then erases Corey Bryant, Chris Argent and Melissa McCall from existence, then enslaves hellhound Deputy Jordan Parrish to open a rift to the Hunt's realm. Douglas then uses Corey's chameleon status to merge the two realms together, to fully unleash the Wild Hunt. Douglas takes up the fight with Scott and his allies, but they manage to defeat him and divert the Hunt. Douglas attempts to re-establish command of the Ghost Riders, but he is instead taken to join the Hunt becoming a Ghost Rider for all eternity.
