The Perceval (Japanese: パーツィバル) was the Imperial flagship of Imperial Fleet admiral Neidhart Müller.


Service history

The very first warship to be commissioned after the foundation of the Goldenlöwe Dynasty, the Perceval was granted to Neidhart Müller by Kaiser Reinhard von Lohengramm on his elevation to the rank of High Admiral in 799 UC (1 NIC / 490 IC / 3599 CE), as a reward for his distinguished service at the Battle of Vermilion, where he saved Lohengramm's life (and his flagship Lübeck was destroyed). (LOGH: 'The Battle of Vermilion (Part Two)', LOGH: 'Visitors')

Though High Admiral Müller feared he might not ever get a chance to sortie in his "excellent" new flagship, the Perceval would fight at the Battle of Marr-Adetta Starzone, the Battle of the Corridor, and the Battle of Shiva. (LOGH: 'The Battle of Marr-Adetta Starzone (Part One)', 'The Battle of the Corridor: End of the Campaign', 'The Crimson Star Road')


A symbol of Kaiser Lohengramm's new empire, the Perceval inherited the gleaming-white hull and flowing form of the Brünhild. The Perceval's armor, like that of the Brünhild, was capable of deflecting cannon fire without damage. (LOGH: 'The Battle of Marr-Adetta Starzone (Part One)')

The Perceval had high performance main thrusters using new technology allowing for greater propellant acceleration. During testing, it was recorded that propellant was expelled at 68% of the speed of light. (Fleet File Collection Vol.3)

Background information

The name Perceval is probably a reference to Parzival, the hero of the German medieval romance of the same name.
