Born in the German capital Berlin, Densch became a police officer in the early 1900s. However, he quit in 1911 after he learned that his superior had ignored a call in order to assign all of his men to the superintendent's parade. In the following period, Densch became depressed and turned to alcohol to drown his sorrows. He decided to use his last funds to travel to the United States to begin a new life.
Once in New England, Densch witnessed how five men attacked a helpless citizen, who was the favorite ghoul of Stanford Warwick, the Nosferatu prince of Providence. Not being able to stand aside while innocents suffered, Densch defended the ghoul and was brutally beaten in the process. Warwick, who had learned of the incident, ordered the man into his Haven and Embraced him out of gratitude.
In the following years, Densch and Warwick became close friends and allies. Warwick entrusted his childe the maintenance of the Web and Densch proved himself worthy of this responsibility.
