Hmph, finally I've gotten that annoying little wench taken care of. Now, if she is executed for revolt, then that Reinhardt will lose his position as well. I can't wait to see his face... Hahaha...
— Kempf

Kempf (Japanese: ケンプフ Kempf) is an antagonist in Fire Emblem: Thracia 776. He has a burning hatred for Reinhardt. While he appears as an enemy in Chapters 11, he flees. In 11x, he leaves prior to the beginning of the chapter. It is not until Chapter 16A that he is fought.

Fire Emblem: Thracia 776


When Olwen asked for aid in Chapter 11, he instead sent her to the dungeon. Fred appears, and questions if Kempf imprisoned her for personal reasons, which is illegal. Kempf lies and claims Olwen attacked him, which would be a crime punishable by death. He tells Fred to fight to the death, lest Olwen die.

Upon spotting the Leonster army, he orders the plan "Portcullis" to be executed, in which the enemy is trapped in a corridor while arrows from ballistae hail down on them. He flees if attacked.

He leaves immediately in Chapter 11x, leaving Oltoph behind, ordering him to execute the tactic "Murder Hollace", which involves locking two people in a room together to fight to the death.

He is chastised by Nikalaf in Chapter 16, and is ordered to wait within range of their ballistae until reinforcements from Alster arrive. He disobeys these orders since he wants the credit himself, and orders his troops to attack and leave no one alive. This fails, and he is slain by the Leonster army.
