The Grendel (Japanese: グレンデル) was the Imperial flagship of Wolfgang Mittermeyer whilst he held the ranks of commodore and rear admiral.


Service history

The Grendel's first known battle was the Sixth Battle of Iserlohn in 794 UC (485 IC / 3594 CE). It went on to fight at the Battle of Legnica and the Fourth Battle of Tiamat, as part of the Lohengramm Fleet, in late 795 UC (486 IC / 3595 CE). (HBSHBL: 'A Hundred Billion Stars, One Ambition'; My Conquest Is the Sea of Stars)

Following Mittermeyer's promotion to vice admiral and induction into Reinhard von Lohengramm's new Admiralty in 796 UC (487 IC / 3596 CE), he transferred his flag to his unique flagship, the Beowulf (which carried an identical crest). (LOGH: 'The Battle of Amritsar Starzone')

Subsequent service of the Grendel is unknown.

Background information

The name Grendel is a reference to the primary antagonist of the Anglo-Saxon epic poem Beowulf. Several Mittermeyer Fleet ships contain references to this poem, including the Heorot and, most notably, Mittermeyer's second and unique flagship, the Beowulf.
