The Heorot (Japanese: ヘオロット) was the personal warship of Imperial Fleet Admiral Karl Edward Bayerlein.


Service history

The Heorot served as Bayerlein's flagship whilst he held the rank of Rear Admiral. Though it was first observed at the Battle of Rantemario in 799 UC (1 NIC / 490 IC / 3599 CE), it can probably be assumed to have been Bayerlein's flagship in the previous battles he fought under Mittermeyer's command. (LOGH: 'The Two-Headed Snake: The Battle of Rantemario')

At some point after Bayerlein's promotion to the rank of full Admiral, he transferred his flag to his unique flagship, the Nürnburg. (LOGH: 'The Battle of the Corridor: Kaleidoscope')

Background information

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