Klaus Heinz von dem Eberbach, nicknamed "Iron Klaus," is one of the main characters in the manga From Eroica With Love.
He is a German NATO major from an aristocratic family (his last name means "from the Boar Creek"). He is an extreme Type A personality, highly driven, who expects everyone around him to live up to his high standards. Klaus' father was a tank commander in the German army during WWII, and Klaus' mother died when he was young. Although he claims to be repulsed and horrified by Dorian's advances, he reacts in a similar fashion to nearly every woman who tries to get close to him (in the English translation of volume twelve, Klaus tells Dorian to get married and have children, to which Dorian responds cheerfully, "I will if you will!") This sex-phobic attitude has led to fannish speculation that he may be a highly repressed homosexual, a victim of childhood sexual abuse, or even asexual.
