If I had to give a reason, I’d say that I stayed because Lord Wilfried needed me.
Lamprecht to Cornelius in Part 3 Volume 3, “Winter Debut and the Playroom”

Lamprecht (ランプレヒト, Ranpurehito) is the second son of Karstedt and Elvira, and a brother of Eckhart, Cornelius and Rozemyne. He is an archknight who currently serves Wilfried as a retainer.

Header.pngPersonality

With a patient and easygoing personality, Lamprecht is dedicated to his work as Wilfried's retainer. However, his inexperience leads him to be less strict than he should be. He also seems to feel a sense of loyalty and affection for his charge, since he stays with Wilfried even after his reputation is tarnished by entering the Ivory Tower.

Header.pngHistory

Lamprecht was born the second son of Karstedt, the Knight Commander, and Elvira, his first wife, making him an archnoble of Ehrenfest. Because the men in his family had historically served as knights to the archducal family, Lamprecht trained as a knight from a young age.

After his older brother Eckhart refused the position of Wilfried's guard knight, Lamprecht was selected. He lacked the experience to be strict with Wilfred, and his charge often ran away from his lessons and shirked his duties. Nevertheless, Lamprecht felt a sense of sympathy for him and felt it was his duty to do what he could in his role.

During his time at the Royal Academy he fell in love with a noble girl from Ahrensbach, and the two wanted to marry. The relationship was considered very feasible when Veronica was in power, since her faction was very supportive of ties with Ahrensbach[1], but due to Lamprecht's mana capacity the girl's father was initially against their marriage[2].

In addition to serving as a guard knight, Lamprecht also assisted the Knight's Order alongside his father and older brother. He was present at the trombe extermination mission that Myne attended as an apprentice blue shrine maiden, although they did not formally meet.

Part 3

Lamprecht formally meets Rozemyne as his new younger sister on the morning of her noble baptism[3]. When Wilfried dragged Rozemyne away after the ceremony, Lamprecht followed after them and was alarmed at the sight of Rozemyne collapsing. He later asked Ferdinand what would make a good apology present. As suggested, he offered Rozemyne a book.

Seeing Rozemyne's advanced progress in her schoolwork, Lamprecht occasionally asks her to help encourage Wilfried to study harder. However, Ferdinand forbids her from getting involved on the grounds that she already has too much work to do. In the end, however, Lamprecht's wish is granted: Wilfried and Rozemyne swap places for a day as an object lesson. Lamprecht accompanies Wilfried to the temple as his guard, where he is forced to help Ferdinand at the temple doing math-related paperwork.

Seeing just how horrible the state of Wilfried's education truly is, Ferdinand becomes furious and even goes so far as to demand the boy being disinherited, believing he does not have the ability or attitude to become the next archduke. Thanks to Rozemyne's intervention however, Ferdinand agrees to secretly test Wilfried to see whether it is truly the fault of the boy himself, or his enviroment. Once Wilfried - prodded along by Rozemyne's temple attendants - manages to memorize a prayer, Ferdinand is finally convinced that the situation did not come about as a result of any mental deficiency on Wilfried part, which leads him to harshly scold Lamprecht for his role is allowing the situation to deteriorate this badly. During the lecture Ferdinand gets so furious he uses his mana to crush Lamprecht, leaving him barely able to breathe.

Part 4

While Rozemyne is asleep in the jureve, Lamprecht's request to marry Aurelia - his beloved from Ahrensbach - is formally refused by Aub Ehrenfest. With Veronica no longer being in a position of power and her former faction having lost most of their influence, the bad blood that has been caused by Ahrensbach's involement with all three attacks on Rozemyne, as well as Georgine's provocations, the Aub wants to minimize any kind of contact with their southern neighbor. Meanwhile Aurelia's father has come around to be in approval of the marrage, due to Lamprecht successfully being able to increase his mana capacity thanks to the compression method he learned from Rozemyne to a degree that satisfied the Ahrensbach noble[2].
While he is disappointed, it is considered an unavoidable outcome due to the political tensions between the two duchies.

In the Archduke Conference following Rozemyne's first year at the Royal Academy, Ahrensbach successfully pressures Ehrenfest into authorizing the marriage between Lamprecht and the Ahrensbach girl he had wanted to marry: Aurelia, the niece of Aub Ahrensbach. The wedding of Freuden and Bettina is also authorized. While the marriage is in Ehrenfest's favor, since it brings more mana into the duchy, it is not clear what Ahrensbach will want in return.

Due to the political situation Lamprecht, Aurelia, Freuden and Bettina will have their marriage officiated at a Starbind Ceremony at the border. Only the families of the spouses and the archducal families will be present, along with the High Priests and High Bishops of the two duchies[4].

Part 4 Volume 5

Despite fears to the contrary and an attempted ambush of the coaches bringing the grey priests and the Divine Instruments, which the Knight's Order is able to thwart thanks to information leaked by disillusioned children of the former Veronica faction led by Matthias and the clear distrust between the two duchies respective guard knights, the marriage ceremony is finished without incident[5].

Rather than getting a mansion of their own, Lamprecht and his new wife move in at the Karstedt estate in a side-building, where Elvira carefully vettes and regulates the visitors Aurelia is allowed to receive. While Lamprecht worries that his wife might feel inprisoned, Aurelia is actually quite happy about her new reclusive and peaceful life and very reluctant to venture out and interact with other nobles for fear of being persecuted. This fear stems from being persecuted throughout her entire childhood and furthermore having an appearance almost identical to Lady Gabriele when she married into Ehrenfest, leading her to believe that many nobles of Ehrenfest would despise her, especially those of the Leisegang family.

This fear also results in her always wearing her veil if there is even the smallest chance someone might enter the room unannounced, which in essence means she only takes the veil of when solely in the presence of her trusted attendant Riadina. Even in the presence of Lamprecht she almost always keeps the veil on, due to the presence of his retainers.

When Aurelia appears unable to make up her mind whether to join the Florencia faction, Lamprecht states that if she wanted to, he is willing to join the former Veronica faction for her and risk a falling out with his family. Though he also is convinced that once Rozemyne and Wilfried marry, the two factions will peacefully merge into one, so any fallout would only be temporary.

Eventually however after a tea party with her new sister-in-law Aurelia is able to bond with Elvira and decides to join the Florencia faction, much to Lamprecht's relief.

Hearing how well Aurelia gets along with Rozemyne prompts Lamprecht to once again brag about his little sister, something he apparently does quite regularly[6].

Part 4 Volume 7

Within half a year of their marriage Aurelia and her husband are able to conceive their first child, though with the pregnancy only being discovered at the beginning of winter and only in it's early stages, the knowledge is so far only told to their close relatives[7].

  • Highbeast: Like his father, his highbeast has the shape of a winged wolf[8].

Header.pngTrivia

  • He is bad at math, which is why he's sympathetic to Wilfried's tendency to run away from his lessons.
