Minster for Foreign Affairs
Balthus Greppenberg (バルデュス・グリッペンベルク Barudyusu Gurippenberuku?) is one of the Four Commanders of the Ruzhien Empire and serves as an antagonist in Valkyria Revolution. Balthus operates the magic machine known as the Dragon.
No. 4 of the Empire’s Four Commanders. Admiral. Also serves as the Minister for Foreign Affairs. The youngest of the “Four Generals.” He assists Gilouche in the army. He’s a trickster with a youngest sibling mentality who has good people skills. He contributed greatly to the expansion of territory along with surrender negotiations. As recognition of his ability, he was entrusted with southern expansion and his zone of jurisdiction was also changed to a zone adjoining Jutland. He participated in the orphanage raid incident, and is an enemy of Amleth and company. Since he excels in diplomacy, he speaks with the correct tone for the time, place, and occasion. He is good at currying favor in general, and doesn’t have a terribly military bearing and can be moderately vulgar on the battlefield. He likes "dragon-type" heavy magic machinery.
After Vanargand defeats his Dragon, Balthus is slain by Amleth.
