–Howard, upon defeat in the Wolfchev's Laboratory instance.

Howard Alteisen is a talented apprentice of a famous Blacksmith, who dedicated his entire life to the research and production of arms. In order to make it possible for his body to manufacture a legendary weapon, he accepted the invitation to become the subject of biological experiments performed in the Somatology Laboratory.[citation needed] His ghost now roams the basement, attacking everyone in sight.

On iRO, this character is localized as Howerd Alt-Eisen.



  • Alteisen is German for "scrap metal", referencing his job as a blacksmith.
