Karl Ernst Haushofer (カール・ハウスホーファー) is a villain of the Fullmetal Alchemist movie Conqueror of Shamballa. He was a German general, geographer and geopolitician. Through his student Rudolf Hess, Haushofer's ideas may have influenced the development of Adolf Hitler's expansionist strategies.


After retiring from the German army, Haushofer became professor at the University of Munich in 1921. There he meets Hohenheim for the first time, who recently had installed in the city. Confessing to have great knowledge of alchemy, Hohenheim earns the respect of Karl and in the someway both are showed, in the last episode from the 2003 anime, to participate in a secret organization called Thule Society.


  • His character is clearly based on an actual historical figure by the name of Karl Haushofer.
