Bread's Crumbs 4: Mass Consumption



The Clan (formerly, traitor)



The Paleman was a character in the Bread's Crumbs Cinematic Universe, serving as an antagonist. He is played by Michael Behrenshauser. A founding member of The Clan, Paleman grew hateful of the team he helped create and joined the U.B.N.V.A.. While there, he idolized Nazi Mitch, but wasn't one to work with others. When Biscuit Savage schemed against The Clan and asked if Paleman wanted to assist his operation, Paleman angrily refused. Paleman would witness the rise and fall of both the U.B.N.V.A. and Nazi Mitch, and sought vengeance against his former allies. He would join forces with The Crumbs' Creator in a bid to destroy The Clan and, ultimately, the world itself. He would start by killing the team's leader, Captain Jumpa, who he hated most, and the U.B.N.V.A.'s former leader, Bread Nelson, who betrayed Nazi Mitch and failed his followers. 

When John Bacchus reunited The Clan, he would gain a device that he believed could contain The Crumbs' power. In actuality, it was a bomb built by The Creator to wipe out humanity. Paleman learned of the device's reappearance, and later had an associate reclaim it. He would make his return by killing Colonel Crunch and Biscuit Savage, before facing The Clan himself and defeating them in battle. Paleman and Creator would battle The Clan again at Mekron Woods, before Paleman and Kaine West battled Flynt, Vin and Rasputin at Torture Wobbler Church. Paleman would kill Rasputin, and influence Vin's son to kill him. Yet Paleman's recent shortcomings displeased Creator, and they severed ties. After Creator was killed, Bacchus and Paleman had a final duel, which allowed Paleman to mortally wound Bacchus. Before Paleman could finish him off, Flynt intervened, and killed Paleman with Creator's axe - ending his rampage. 


The Paleman was a founding member of The Clan - a group of treasure hunters dedicated to tracking down and safeguarding ancient and powerful artifacts. He created the team alongside Captain Jumpa, John Bacchus and Glen Tennis. Over time, Paleman began to take on violent tendencies, forcing Captain Jumpa to excommunicate him from the team. 

After being disowned by his allies, Paleman was taken in by Nazi Mitch, who trained him to be a cunning and skilled fighter for the United Bread Nelson Villains Association  Paleman was often sent out to kill targets and undertake reconnaissance missions. Yet as time went on, he would lose self-confidence, and began hiding away in the U.B.N.V.A. headquarters for months at a time. Around this time, Paleman became acquainted with Biscuit Savage, a mighty brute and another major member of the organization. However, the two had a rather rough relationship. 

Over the years, The Clan would try to locate Paleman on numerous occassions, but they were never able to find him. For a while, they weren't sure if he was even alive. 

Bread's Crumbs 2: Electric BoogalooEdit

The Paleman was loitering outside of the U.B.N.V.A. headquarters when he was approached by Biscuit Savage. Savage asked The Paleman to take part in his "operation", which involved wiping out The Clan. Paleman claimed he already had other plans, and angrily told Savage to leave. Savage walked off, and angrily asked why no one wants to kill people today. 

Between FilmsEdit

For the next year, Paleman laid low in the U.B.N.V.A., choosing to avoid major conflicts brought about by The Clan. When Nazi Mitch was killed by The Clan, Paleman was infuriated by the loss of his idol. It was around this time that The Creator of The Crumbs was freed from the artifact he forged. Seeking vengeance against The Clan, Paleman would form an alliance with Creator. Paleman sought to wipe out The Clan with Creator's help, in exchange for helping Creator reclaim a device he built that can destroy the world. 

Bread's Crumbs 4: Mass ConsumptionEdit

As The Clan began their quest to remake The Crumbs, Paleman would begin a mission of his own - hunting down and slaying his former allies. He went to the overhangar where Nazi Mitch died; there, he knelt down and spoke to a miniature portrait of Mitch. Paleman vowed to carry out his objective in Mitch's name, and with the aid of The Creator, he would kill The Clan in the days ahead. Paleman swore to kill Mitch's arch enemy, Colonel Crunch, and promised not to fail Mitch as he'd been preparing for this day. 


  • The Paleman is one of three Bread's Crumbs villains who made a brief appearance in an earlier installment and returned in a later installment. He briefly appeared in the second film and will return in the fourth film. On the other hand, Banny Passerini and Axel Gunner briefly appeared in the second film, and later had larger roles in the third film and The Two Man Trio, respectively. All three characters will return for the fourth and final film. 
  • The Paleman's name is based off of Paleman, a character from the fourth season of Ninjago: Masters of Spinjitzu. The character was created when Michael Behrenshauser, who has pale skin, joined the cast of the second film during the first day of filming.
