Heine is a kindly old dutchman who Mrs. Trueheart hired to run her delicatessen after Emil’s death. Heine knew Emil as a kid and promises to make a profit (which he does) before paying himself. Heine has a soft spot for women in distress, giving the dame Belle some cash when she claims to be down to her last cent. When Tracy was captured by Broadway Bates and his men, Heine knew to follow Belle and found out where they were holding Tracy. Knocking out a man outside, Stueben snuck in, freed Tracy and then helped him fight off Broadway and his man Spike. Later Heine revealed he had fought in a previous war, (WWI?) and claimed to have been suspicious of the dame the entire time.
