Imperial lieutenant colonel, age 31. Leads the elite 502nd heavy tank battalion known as Ausbruch. Fearless and tactically flexible. He believes in his instincts above all else, and relies on them in battle. He thrills in combat, and is always happy to have worthy adversaries. After being bested by Claude in their first encounter, he grew quite attached to him-seeing him as his greatest rival in the Federation. He's a bastard child of a noble family. After his mother died, he spent his life in the slums. He has no love for the Empire-only for his hometown. When returning home, Crymaria went with him. With his war merits (and a Valkyrian girlfriend), many call him "the most dangerous man in Europa."
