Fritz Stanford was a member of the Aryan Socialist Union, a United States-based neo-Nazi group that accompanied their leader Ratchman on a salvage operation not far from Jakarta (originally named Batavia). The objective: salvage a painting from a minor German artist, 'The Twelve Knights Led by Brunhilda', from the sunken wreck of the U-boat U-1324. However, the group had to fight Revy and Rock for the painting (the Lagoon Company was also assigned to find the painting from the same person who hired the A.S.U. – the former SS officer Lord Alfred).
Stanford, a tall, large-framed individual, was your typical neo-Nazi – blindly obedient to his leader and extremely fanatical of his beliefs. When Revy and Dutch had boarded the group's boat to try to find the painting – as well as killing the A.S.U.'s membership during their drunken celebration – Stanford encountered Revy as her pistols ran out of ammunition. He then brashly (and stupidly) began to brag about how 'weak' she was, as well as showing her his pistol – a customized, gold-plated gun he called the Eisenreich Luger Special, which he claimed that someone like Revy couldn't even lift – all the while Revy reloaded her guns with new clips. She then shot Stanford in the chest, mainly to kill him – but also to shut him up. With Stanford wounded, Revy decided to give him some advice - if you can hit your target, any gun would do the trick. With that, she shot him in the head.
