DLC Hubrecht.png
Cirque des Cartes
Gender: Male

Hubrecht "Hertz" Adelhardt (JP: ヒューブレクト・ハーツ・アデルハート) is a good-natured strongman who does not realize the Cirque des Cartes doubles as a talent pool for the mob. Some would call him childishly naive while others say he was just born in the wrong world. But most agree that makes little difference, as even a friendly hug from the big guy earns him his nickname of "Hertz".

In Cerebella's origin story in Skullgirls Mobile, he prepares Regina's first test for Cerebella, Beatrix, and Feng, an obstacle course designed to gauge their physical ability. It is very likely he was unaware that the reason for the test was to select an enforcer to carry out a mission for the mob.

Playstyle Speculation

Flexing! Happy command throws! Good-natured noogies! “720 - command throw everyday!”

Hearts, sparkles, and rainbows on various attacks with some referencing Mr. Heart and Heart Aino. Plus dual strong-man acrobatics with his spade-themed partner for striking visuals and attacks combining opposing suits.
