Heinkel Astrea (ハインケル・アストレア) is the Deputy Commander of the Royal Guard and Reinhard van Astrea's father. He is also the current Patriarch of House Astrea.


Heinkel is a muscular man with short red hair, blue eyes and a stubble beard. He wears a black tabard with brown shoulder plates and chest armor, along with a dark cape, brown pants, gloves and black boots.


Although he appears to be a serious man, when it comes to fighting, he is usually somewhat shy and insecure, to which Theresia had to take his place to defeat the Hakugei, however, she got killed in the fight due the disappearance of her powers which passed down to her grandson, Reinhard van Astrea. Heinkel did not change at all. When he gets the opportunity to hide during a battle, he does.

He knows about his family's situation because of Theresia's death, but even so he interrupts anyone who tries to fix the matter, since for Heinkel, it does not make any sense to fix things. He is angry at Wilhelm for letting Theresia die, and at Reinhard for killing her when she was revived as a zombie by Pandora.

Heinkel is also an alcoholic, as he rather drinks his problems away than fixing them. He's mentioned to have started drinking when Louanna was afflicted with her unknown condition.


Theresia van Astrea and a company of knights was sent on an expedition to subjugate the Hakugei because Heinkel declined to do so. However, the mission failed and Theresia died along with most of the knights.

Sometime later, Ford Lugnica's daughter was kidnapped by some intruders in the Royal Castle. The daughter is suspected to be Felt and the intruders are suspected to be hired by Heinkel.


Swordmanship: Despite being insecure about fighting, he's decently skilled.

Equipment: Heinkel is the current wielder of the Holy Sword Astrea (聖剣アストレア Seiken Asutorea).

    • The Dragon didn't chose Crusch. It was the Insignia, which is just an stone that determinds if the holder has the necessary qualities...
    • Yeah, too shocking that Felt is linked to the royal family, Reinhard said something related to it too, like, "I have to take you with me.."
