The town of Bruhl


The Sister Mills

Bruhl is a small town located at the eastern edge of Gallia and the home of Alicia Melchiott and Welkin Gunther.


Windmills stand atop the crests of many of the region's rolling hills, but few are as large as the so-called "Sister Mills" built from an old castle tower at the heart of town. Because it radiates out from the mill, Bruhl is also known as "Miller's Home."

The town supposedly began as a hideout for Royal Guard soldiers who'd revolted against the king. Perhaps in echo of that, this town of just under 8,000 nonetheless has an active town watch, and Bruhlers are famed for taking pride in guarding their homes themselves. Exports include dairy and bread made from locally grown wheat.

At the beginning of Valkyria Chronicles, Bruhl is attacked by a small Imperial force consisting of scouts and light tanks. The attack heavily damages the town, including the Sister Mills at the town's center, and kills a number of citizens and town watch.

Welkin's house is located on the outskirts of the town.
