(Marvel: The Lost Generation I#8 (fb) - BTS) - Edvard Hugo served as captain in Romania's Home Militia. He was assigned to safeguard the small town of Petralova. During his time in law enforcement he presumably met the physician Stephen Strange (see comments).
At some point in the mid to late 1970s, Hugo was called in after a man had been found murdered in room 12 of the local hotel (the victim was agent Groza, killed by Nocturne). Figuring whoever murdered Groza might return, Hugo waited around just outside the hotel room.
(Marvel: The Lost Generation I#8) - When First Line members Black Fox and Pixie, in their civilian guises, came to the hotel to meet with Groza, they discovered his body lying on the floor. The Fox quickly concluded Nocturne was responsible, but by then Hugo had already come out of hiding. Startling Pixie, he pulled his gun on the heroes and put them both under arrest. The Fox tried to sell Hugo the cover story that he was R.W. Paine, who had come to Petralova with his secretary, Ms. Pixley, to work out a trade agreement with Groza for a company called Canadian Grains Limited. Hugo was anything but convinced by Paine's cover story. Only the timely arrival of his associate Doctor Strange, who vouched for Paine, convinced the captain to let the two alleged Canadians go.

It's never been made clear if the good captain actually knew Doctor Strange or if the mage put him under some unseen, subtle spell.
