Karl Gustav Kempff (Japanese: カール・グスタフ・ケンプ) was an admiral of the Galactic Empire.
Kempff was born in 762 UC (453 IC / 3562 CE) and died in 798 UC (489 IC / 3598 CE) at the Eighth Battle of Iserlohn. As punishment for being defeated, he was posthumously promoted only one rank instead of the customary two ranks. (LOGH: 'Portraits', 'The Return')
In late 794 UC (485 IC / 3594 CE), Kempff participated in the Sixth Battle of Iserlohn as an Imperial Walküre ace and destroyed at least 2 Alliance Spartanian fighters as well as surviving a grazing hit to his fighter. (HBSHBL: 'A Hundred Billion Stars, One Ambition')
