With a huge cast of 50 individual characters to learn about, Sega has finally begun to release character trailers for Valkyria Chronicles 4, kicking off with the primary cast who are part of the Federation Army. Featuring protagonists Claude Wallace and Riley Miller, the trailer also introduces players to the rough and tumble "Immortal" Raz, as well as the quiet and deadly Kai Schulen. Check it out below, then scroll down to get more info on why how they came together as a team.
These characters begin on their journey together at the height of a large-scale attack, rallied under Claude's command. Here's a little more on each of them, from Sega's official website:
- Claude Wallace: A first lieutenant. He is a serious, passionate, and caring commanding officer. He is a talented individual who graduated at the top of his class at Edinburgh Military Academy. He has no military shortcomings, and in addition to military skills, he has an animalistic intuition in regard to the weather and climate. His “Revelation of the Wind,” a perfect guess of the change in weather from a few minutes to several days later, often ends any stalemate. He has a strong determination to accomplish his objective, and even in the face of a difficult mission, inspires his comrades with his fiery determination.
- Riley Miller: A second lieutenant technician with great scientific ability, who is prideful and has great confidence in herself, and is a genius in Ragnite engineering. She specializes in mental arithmetic and physical calculation, and thus exhibits talent in ballistic calculation as a gunner. She and Claude are childhood friends, but it seems that something that occurred in the past, as they are currently not on speaking terms. Before the war, her Ragnite engineering talent enabled her to skip a grade and advance to the University of the United States of Vinland. She is positive and cheerful, and ambitious in that she pushes forward without fear of failure.
- Raz: His rank is sergeant. He is aggressive and quick to get into fights, and talks with a rough tone. Since his people, the Darcsen, once devastated the continent, they are still persecuted to this day and do not have surnames. His physical ability is very high, to the point where he calls himself “Immortal Raz,” and both his physical strength and agile nature make him incredibly efficient as a soldier. He tends to be misunderstood due to his clumsy personality, but he is extremely caring of his friends.
- Kai Schulen: She is a sniper master sergeant. She is Claude, Raz, and Riley’s childhood friend, and is usually silent and blunt. With the nickname “One Shot Killer,” she is a prodigy sharpshooter whose eyes conceal a strong purpose. Also, her physical strength is second to none when compared to a common soldier. She loves fresh-made bread.
Valkyria Chronicles 4 will release later this year on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch.
