Eugen Sandow is a Victorian era bodybuilder, whose image is seen on the Mr. Olympia bodybuilding trophy. He was Colonel Lloyd Venture's bodyguard and confidante, a role analogous to Brock Samson for Rusty Venture. He is the first known Venture family bodyguard. He was given standing orders by an unknown entity (possibly a precursor of the OSI) to terminate Lloyd Venture if he ever attempted to activate the Orb. When that eventuality arose, he did not actually kill Col. Venture, opting instead to destroy the Orb. Colonel Venture objected, but quickly conceded the point upon learning of Sandow's original orders.
