Frederich Lichtermann was the Watcher of Britta Kessler, who he trained since she was a Potential Slayer. When she was called, they attended the screening and filming of the final scene of a movie at the residence of Herr Sahr. However, Sahr and his crew were a pack of vampires who sought to film the deaths of Britta, Lichterman and the rest of the people invited. Britta managed to release the rest of the prisoners, but was subdued by the vampires. Lichterman, fearful of death, abandoned his Slayer and escaped, leaving her to be sired.
The next day, Lichterman ventured to the Kessler family mausoleum, intending to slay Britta. However, he was locked inside the mausoleum by Sahr's vampires, where he was killed by the newly-risen Britta.
