Karl Stromberg, born 13 January 1965 in Annaberg-Bucholz, Germany, and is fluent in German, English, and Russian. In 1998, he and his partner, Ronald de Smet, held the authority to conduct business in the UK on behalf of the Liberian Aircraft Register. His base in Sharjah took advantage of the UAE's lax banking and import export laws to run guns. His links to terrorist organizations was theoretically cut with the international ban on exporting arms to Afghanistan in 2001. Authorities lost track of him in 2008.

He was hired by the Ring to move their intelligence safe. The DEA had long been attempting to bring him down. Sarah's DEA friend, Carina Miller, finally managed to get close to him by initiating a relationship.

Stromberg genuinely fell for Carina, and their phone conversations were a frequent source of (suppressed) amusement to his men. Stromberg's final deal was an unidentified weapon being smuggled in to California. Now engaged to her mark, Carina enlisted Sarah and her team to steal the weapon during her engagement party.


The effort was largely successful, but security recordings of Chuck trapped in the vault, inadvertently blew Carina's cover. Stromberg was crushed by the news that Carina had never loved him, and took her hostage in an attempt to recover the weapon.

His team was dispatched by Chuck, Casey, and Sarah, but Stromberg kept Carina hostage, threatening to kill her.

Chuck reached out to Stromberg about having his heart broken and managed to talk him down long enough for Carina to break free and take him out.
