The Red Baron
I find it interesting to mix elements from history and pop culture that are rarely found together. I rarely see classical fantasy tropes like dragons meeting settings taking place in modern times like the first world war.
The real Baron von Richthofen never lived long enough to see himself become an older Gentleman with a gray mustache. Maybe I was thinking of the character of Baron Münchhausen when drawing this picture, which would fit the fantasy scenario well.
