|“||Hey, you lot. What is... the Special Service? A force of justice fighting for the world's sake...? Or a gathering of fools, so inspired by that idiot over there that you daydream of being some Non-Killing Army...? Well, you're wrong. We're... evil.||”|
—Gespenst Zerlegen explains about Special Service, Other Way (Chapter 46)
Gespenst Zerlegen (ゲシュペンスト＝ゼレーゲン Geshupensuto Zerēgen), or known better as Pele Poporo (ペレ＝ポポロ Pere Poporo, Yen Press: Pele Popolo), is the third male protagonist of Plunderer. Gespenst is friends with Lyne Mei and also her henchmen. It's later revealed that Gespenst is the colonel general of White Special Service and one of the 7 Legendary Red Baron, known as "The Pierce Baron".
Gespenst has light brown hair and green eyes. He wears a white headband and his military uniform.
Gespenst was first introduced as a mild and cunning subordinate who enjoys teasing his superior officer when she went overboard and showed her panties. However, from the pre-Abandonment War onward, Gespenst begins to show a more cold personality towards his comrade and is willing to kill a White Special Service member just because the man displeases him. It is later revealed that he is the Colonel-General of the Special Service. Like most members of the Special Service, Gespenst could easily conceal his cold and ruthless personality but would often display them against enemies and allies alike.
Gespenst was sold to various old men by his parents as a child, in exchange for foods. Due to this, Gespenst has never once trusted a person before in his life. Gespenst later joined the 13th Special Military Forces School to become a soldier. Sometime after the Abandonment War started, Gespenst was chosen to become the Red Baron.
300 years later, Gespenst was ordered to assassinate Jail Murdoch and the Gefängnis members, which were referred to as "the most dangerous soldiers of Althea Royal Guard." Due to this, Gespenst was assigned into Gefängnis troop. However, Jail's sense of enemy was too good, which means Gespenst can't find his chance to assassinate him and the Gefängnis so his mission failed. Thus, Gespenst ended up joining the same group as Lyne Mei and took the name "Pele Poporo", while hiding his true identity. Gespenst described his time working on the Althea Royal Guard like living in hell ever since.
