- Before the Fall manga
Finke was a man of heavy build and dark hair with a receding hairline. He wore the standard uniform and cloak of the Military Police Brigade.
In the early hours of the morning, Finke stands guard with another soldier at the gates of the Industrial City within Wall Rose. When his comrade spots a carriage coming in, he suggests that it is a cargo shipment being rushed in. He stands in the middle of the road, ordering them to slow the carriage, but the carriage continues to charge forward, trampling him. As his comrade cries out to Finke, the carriage explodes, destroying the gate of the city and killing all close by. Before Finke's comrade can process the situation, he is shot through the head by members of the Dissidence Movement.
