Ernst as seen in RO.
|Friends||Eigen Ahrum Walter|
|First Appearance||Episode 12 (Ragnarok Online)|
It is unknown how he is related to Tristan Gaebolg III.
Ernst greets the appraiser kindly and answers the adventurer's questions very sincerely, gaining good points from the appraiser.
He later meets up with his friend Ahrum, who makes him promise that should one of them become corrupted, the other should kill him. Ernst is embarrassed to agree to the promise while the appraiser was present, but Ahrum merely adds that the appraiser is the official witness of their promise. Ernst never verbally agrees to the promise, as in his heart he can never bring himself to kill Ahrum.
Some time afterwards, Ernst finds Ahrum going into the rooms of the other five princes to hurl insults at them. He can't seem to understand why Ahrum was behaving so badly and goes to confront him in Ahrum's room. It is there that Ahrum reminds him of their promise and throws him a dagger.
Shocked, Ernst pleads Ahrum to cease his unusual behavior. When Ahrum realizes Ernst won't take the dagger, he uses it to stab himself. Ernst grabs hold of Ahrum as the prince slumps to the ground from the fatal wound. With his dying breath, Ahrum tells Ernst that he was the most qualified candidate for the throne. After telling the nearby appraiser to not let the truth of his actions be known, Ahrum then dies in Ernst's arms.
