Personality & Character
Skills & Abilities
Although he is a Newtype, his capacity as a pilot is low and his combat skills are inferior to Siegfried without support from Serein.
A Newtype from the Flanagan Institute, Ein was assigned to a unit along with Siegfried Wedner and Serein Experi during the One Year War. Although he initially disliked Siegfried, who was an Oldtype, he later came to befriend and respect him after fighting through many battles together. However, his twisted sense of superiority towards Oldtypes was revived when he discovered Serein's feelings towards Siegfried. He betrayed the location of their squadron to the Federation Forces during the withdrawal from A Baoa Qu, and later joined the Titans after presenting them with data from Zeon's "Project Seirene". He is responsible for brainwashing Serein.
In the DS version of the story, he was meant to be a Newtype partner to the unstable Cyber-Newtype, Serein. However, because Serein instead chose Siegfried, Ein's personality collapsed, resulting in jealousy and intense hatred towards Siegfried. Although Ein gains powerful Newtype abilities by relying on Serein and the "Fafnir System", he is defeated in combat by Siegfried due to his inability to improve upon his own skills. He dies while causing the Seirene System to become uncontrollable in a last effort to take Siegfried with him.
