Kasper Linz (Japanese: カスパー・リンツ) was an Alliance military officer who served in the Rosen Ritter regiment, climbed the ranks and eventually became its commander.
A former Imperial citizen of common birth, Kasper Linz fled to the Free Planets Alliance, where he joined up with the Rosen Ritter, under the command of Walter von Schönkopf.
A skilled soldier, Linz participated in the infiltration of Iserlohn Fortress during the Seventh Battle of Iserlohn, serving as second-in-command of Schönkopf's Rosen Ritter.
Following the formation of the Iserlohn Garrison Fleet in October 796 UC (487 IC / 3596 CE), Linz succeeded Schönkopf as the 14th commander of the Rosen Ritter after the latter was appointed as the Iserlohn Garrison Commander. (LOGH: 'New Trends')
