“You have all heard too. Lord Barker has now returned to the Royal Palace, a heavy resolution within him. This resolution is what the soldiers here are longing for with all their hearts. To help Lord Barker, we have to defend this city of Reeve. Entrust all your lives to me! Our motherland's ruin or salvation depends on this battle. Let us believe in the future of Canaan and fight to the very end!”
Ernst (エルンスト Erunsuto) is an enemy character from TearRing Saga: Utna Heroes Saga. He is the foremost general of Canaan and bears the title of the "Sword of Canaan". He is an honest man who dislikes needless sacrifices. He is also the boss of Map 34.
Ernst is first seen in Map 10, in which he is the commander of the 15th platoon of Canaan's knights. He retreats once Fort Sene is captured or receives orders to return to Reeve Castle if Runan's army enters the grasslands, leaving his men to attack. He is later assigned to be the defending commander in Reeve and dies during a battle against Runan's army, although 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.
