“This resolution is what the soldiers here are longing for with all their hearts. To help Lord Barker we have to defend the kingdom of Reeve. Entrust all your lives to me! Our motherland's salvation or ruin depends on this battle. Let us believe in the future of Canaan and fight till the very end!!”
—Ernst, before Map 34's start
Ernst (エルンスト Erunsuto) is a boss character from TearRing Saga: Utna Heroes Saga. He is first seen in Map 10 as the commander of the 15th platoon but will retreat if Fort Senay is captured or will be ordered to retreat to Castle Reeve if Runan's units enter the grassland, leaving his troops to attack. He will reappear as an enemy boss in Map 34.
Ernst is Canaan's foremost general, known as the "Sword of Canaan". He is an honest man who doesn't like needless sacrifices. He was assigned as the defending commander at Reeve and dies during the battle with Runan, though he continues to guard his post even in death.
- He seems to be the father of Narron, as they have the same class and in the end of the game Narron states that his mother told him that his father was a general of Canaan.
