"Yes... I will fight! For a peaceful future...!"
—Clarissa Callaghan, Valkyria Chronicles 3

Clarissa Callaghan (クラリッサ・キャラハン Kurarissa Kyarahan?) was sent into Nameless on the charge of treason because she falls in love with an Imperial Soldier and let him return to his country. The soldier she saved wanted her to come with him, but she refused.


Expanded Biography

"A kind-hearted angel of mercy with a frail air about her."

Clarissa was working as a medic in the Gallian Army's field hospital when she fell in love with an imperial soldier she was tending to and helped him escape. She was immediately transferred to Nameless as punishment. Her hobby is dancing, an activity she started as a way to lose weight.

Clarissa's fragile qualities and devoted personality had made her a favorite among the male patients in the field hospital. The sight of countless soldiers dying day after day began to desensitize Clarissa, however, and she felt like she was losing her humanity. It was the encouraging words of the imperial soldier she soon fell in love with that brought life back into Clarissa's eyes. Before escaping from the field hospital, the soldier told Clarissa that he would return for her one day, and she faithfully held onto that promise. Clarissa's sense of compassion is so strong that she would willing sacrifice herself to save another, a trait that Felix worries about constantly.

After Nameless was disbanded, Clarissa joined a dancing troupe and traveled around imperial territory searching for the man whose photograph she kept in her locket. Clarissa was eventually wedded to her beloved soldier, and she is now a mother with one child.
