Adalbert von Fahrenheit (Japanese: アーダルベルト・フォン・ファーレンハイト) was a Vice Admiral in the Imperial Fleet. From a poor low noble background, he reached the rank of High Admiral under the Lohengramm regime and was the first officer of that rank to die, posthumously promoted to Fleet Admiral.
A young admiral known for his offensive abilities, Adalbert von Fahrenheit served under admiral Willibald Joachim von Merkatz in the Lippstadt League. After the death of Duke Otho von Braunschweig and the end of the Imperial Civil War, Fahrenheit surrendered. Fahrenheit was brought before Reinhard von Lohengramm, and was recruited as a Vice Admiral in Reinhard's fleet due to his excellent abilities. Thereafter, Fahrenheit loyally served Reinhard.
Fahrenheit admitted to holding back in his performance so as not to arouse the ire of his superiors. Consequently, the Goldenbaum leaders considered him useless and insubordinate. In the Lohengramm camp, his fleet rivaled the Black Lancers in offensive power.
Alongside Bittenfeld, Fahrenheit was sent to cut off Yang from exiting the Iserlohn Corridor in the first phase of the Battle of the Corridor. When their fleets were trapped in the close confines of the Corridor by a heavy crossfire across the exit, Fahrenheit ordered his flagship, Asgrimm, to the rear and covered a retreat, allowing many ships to escape. He was mortally wounded when his flagship was hit and died with the ship.
Adalbert is an old Germanic given name that means 'touched by nobility'. Fahrenheit is the name of a temperature scala created by Daniel Gabriel Fahrenheit, a German physicist and creator of instruments.
