Lenora RauchPlayed by Maria Schrader
Martin's aunt and boss, age 46. Officially the Cultural Attaché at the East German Embassy in Bonn, she also runs the GDR assets in the West for the HVA (East German Secret Service).
A Party champion who sacrificed her youth to the cause, Lenora has never married and has no kids. When we meet her, East German budgets are running out, the HVA is paranoid and Lenora is feeling increasingly desperate. She loves her sister Ingrid, Martin's mother, so her loyalties are torn when it comes to Martin. But she will stop at nothing to get the job done.
