Ralph Carlsen (Japanese: ラルフ・カールセン) was an Alliance vice admiral and commander of the 15th Fleet. He notably did not graduate from the military academy but worked his way up the ranks of the Free Planets Star Fleet, and was able to become an admiral during the Alliance–Imperial War. During Operation Ragnarök in 799 UC (1 NIC / 490 IC / 3599 CE), he was given command of the hastily formed 15th Fleet and commanded it from Diomedes at the Battle of Rantemario. Carlsen survived the battle and would later fight again during the brief Second Alliance–Imperial War, where he was killed during the Battle of Mar-Adetta.
