In Hetalia, Prussia is the older brother of Germany, and is a part of the Axis, though not a recurring member.
After becoming the Kingdom of Prussia, he reunited the German states after the collapse of the Holy Roman Empire, which became the German Confederation. He later had the Seven Year War with Austria to take back control of the Confederation, which eventually became the German Empire.
He participated in World War 1. With the fall of the German empire and the rise of the Wiemar Republic, the Kingdom of Prussia lost its power, and became too weak to be considered a true nation, but too self governed to be considered a state, and was renamed the Free State of Prussia. In the late thirties, after a series of riots and attempted political assassinations against the Third Reich, the government of the Free State was dissolved. At the end of World War 2, the country was officially dissolved by the Allies, and its land split between Germany, Poland, and partially with Russia.
Prussia currently lives with Germany.

Common 2P! TraitsEdit
It is common for 2p!s to be portrayed as murderous, sociopaths and possibly insane. To most, they are a darker version of the original Nations. However, because the Original Nations can be portrayed the same way by the fandom, how much hold this has depends on the person making the story.
Prussia is not shown enough to know what murderous traits he would have.
