Balmung was a large black hunting dog owned by Klimt van Zieks.

Pet turned to Weapon[]

Main article: Professor Killings

Depicted in The Adventures of Herlock Sholmes

Balmung was owned by Klimt van Zieks of the van Zieks family. He used to take his dog out hunting in the woods behind his manor. Upon his owner's marriage to a woman of the Baskerville family, he received a jewel studded collar. When prosecutor van Zieks heard that a fellow noble was victimizing the rest of England to make himself more well off, he felt a deep sense of regret and frustration at being unable to do anything about it exactly because the perpetrator was a noble. That was why van Zieks decided to go on a hunt with Balmung and became known as the Professor.

Soon after Balmung torn the throat of that noble apart, another prosecutor named Mael Stronghart found out about his owner. He decided to use the Professor to create a perfect society in England by threatening to tell Klimt about him to his wife and younger brother, Barok van Zieks. Stronghart made Klimt kill three more nobles, the third victim was the current Chief Justice, who was also Klimt's own mentor and benefactor, so Stronghart could take his place. Around the same time Klimt was killed in a duel with Genshin Asogi, Balmung had died. Yujin Mikotoba found elderly Balmung in the garden of a mansion in Dartmoor where he helped Klimt's wife give birth to Iris Wilson. Several years later, a cat burglar named Selden snuck into Klimt's manor, stole Balmung's collar, and hid it in his secret hideout.
