Nils Daerden (ニルス・デールデン Nirusu Dēruden?) is a twenty-nine year old Squad 7 lancer who appears in the original Valkyria Chronicles videogame. Nils also appears as a member of squad 1 in the Valkyria Chronicles anime.


Valkyria ChroniclesEdit

A denizen of the capital city's seedy underbelly, his was a solitary life. He remained undefeated through countless turf wars. Burly, rugged and stoic, he's had more than a few ladies approach him, but none have yet managed to sway him from his lone wolf ways.

A long chain of turf battles ultimately saw him reigning at the peak of Gallia's underworld, enforcing his own code of honor in concert with the government.

Personal PotentialsEdit

  • City Kid - Standing on paved roads reminds them of the city, making them feel right at home and upping their defense.
  • Lone Wolf - Having allies nearby is a distraction that causes a drop in evasion ability.
  • Camp Defender - Bent on protecting the camp by sheer force of will, they naturally become better at evading attacks.
  • Misogynist - Having women nearby triggers constitutional loathing so powerful it lowers accuracy.

  • Stand Ready - Defense receives a boost when they enter the range of enemy interception fire.
