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 provides an opportunity for his friend, Mintz, to desert the army. 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.
