Thoma von Stockhausen (Japanese: トーマ・フォン・シュトックハウゼン) was an Imperial admiral placed in command of Iserlohn Fortress. He shared command of Iserlohn with Admiral Hans Dietrich von Seeckt, who commanded Iserlohn's garrison fleet.
Admiral Stockhausen holds the dubious honour of being in command of the fortress when it was captured by the 13th Fleet on 14 May 796 UC (487 IC / 3596 CE). Stockhausen allowed the Rosen Ritter, led by Walter von Schönkopf, into Iserlohn's command centre without being aware of their true identities. Schönkopf took Stockhausen hostage. Stockhausen's second in command told Schönkopf his actions were useless as Stockhausen was a loyal Imperial officer, and would gladly sacrifice his life for the Empire. Stockhausen, however, surrendered and ordered his subordinates to stand down, allowing the Rosen Ritter to seize control of the command centre and Yang Wen-li to capture the fortress. (LOGH: 'The Rosen Ritter', 'Iserlohn Captured!')
Stockhausen is a German surname, commonly associated with two families of musicians, one from the 19th century and the other from the 20th century.
