Hoffman Zemo was the ninth Baron Zemo after his father Hilliard. He was the only child Hilliard knew about that was his and he was raised in luxury.
Hoffman had wavy brown-blonde hair and a mustache and goatee, similar to his ancestor Helmuth. He wore simple frock coats and suits.
Hoffman was an excellent artist- especially in painting- and he crafted Castle Zemo into a beautiful estate. He collected tons of art and music and was a musician fluent in many instruments. He was viewed as unremarkable and unfit to be a Baron, but Hoffman lived his life to the fullest and did not involve himself in present problems and politics.
