Ernst von Eisenach (Japanese: エルンスト・フォン・アイゼナッハ) was an admiral in the Imperial Fleet serving under Reinhard von Lohengramm. His taciturn nature earned him the nickname "Silent Admiral."

In battle he uses hand signals and gestures to issue commands.


Military service

Eisenach first appeared in Operation Ragnarok.

In early 793 UC (484 IC / 3593 CE), he captained a ship which supplied Commander Reinhard von Müsel's cruiser, the Hässliche Entlein. (RET: 'Chapter IV')

He participated in the Battle of Vermilion, and remains in service at the close of the story.

He would play an important role in the Battle of Marr-Adetta, as he helped to take out most of the Alliance fleet.

His most significant manuever came in the Battle of Shiva, where he nearly wiped out the entirety of the Iserlohn Fleet along with Fritz Josef Bittenfeld. In that manuever, his fleet caused significant damage to the Flagship Hyperion, killing High Admiral Merkatz.

Personal life

Eisenach is married.

Outside of Battle, Eisenach rarely ever speaks, however, on one occaision, after the assault on Fezzan, playing a solo 3-D Chess game, Eisenach utters the word "Checkmate" out loud, startling his fellow admirals.

"That's the first time I've heard his voice!"

"I had no idea, he can speak?"

-Neidhart Muller and Fritz Josef Bittenfeld's reaction to hearing Eisenach speak



Eisenach is a city in the middle of Germany, in Thuringia.
