Heidler is the brother in law to Roth who is mentioned in Chapter 2. He plays a very small, yet very important role in the story. He was assigned a mission by Elvira Bricks to make Tamara leave Endwarden. The Bricks chose Heidler because he could speak French, Tamara's main language. In addition to French and German he also could speak fluent Spanish and Russian. He was to offer her one million marks to go back to Tunisia. He was bribed with $500,000 to do the job, yet he failed.
