—Anisette Nelson, Valkyria Chronicles 2

Anisette Nelson (リコリス・ネルソン Rikorisu Neruson?) is the younger sister of Edy Nelson and an shocktrooper in Class G. She is named Licorice in the Japanese version.

She also has a habit of losing her temper quite easily when confronted with what she considers to be unfair circumstances.





Valkyria Chronicles 2

Following in her sister's footsteps, Anisette aims to become a famous "Super Idol," studying song and dance in her spare time. She is very talented in singing but lacks physical stamina, however this doesn't seem to stop her from trying. She idolizes her older sister and wishes to perform on stage with her.

After graduating from Lanseal, Anisette headed to the capital with Edy. She had succeeded in her dream of becoming a dancer, unfazed by her sister's foiled ambitions.

Expanded Biography

Wannabe Idol

Anisette is the little sister of Edy Nelson, who fought alongside Welkin during the Gallian Campaign. She worships Edy, and one day hopes to become a superstar with her sister. Anisette is honest and hard-working, and is superior in many ways to Edy, who has lots of confidence without any real skill to back it up. Despite her obvious talents, however, Anisette has some insecurities, and feels that she will never be as good as her sister. While attending Lanseal, Anisette manages to overcome her lack of athleticism, and beats Edy to a debut as a professional dancer after graduating.

Anisette blindly admires Edy and even insists that Edy's tone-deaf singing is simply "revolutionary."

Bright and Honest with Lots of Friend

"Life's all about luck. Making an effort is just a waste of time. Still, if she's lucky, it's certainly possible that Anisette will get to debut as a star."
—Jamill's thoughts on Anisette, Valkyria Chronicles 2 WORLD ARTWORKS

Anisette's honest personality allows her to make friends easily, and she particularly has lots of female friends. Along wit her close friends Coleen and Noel, Anisette makes up the core of Class G's gossip network. Though Anisette does not seem to be romantically involved with anyone at this time, it is not unreasonable to think that she has many secret admirers.

A White Lie turns into an Opportunity

"Now for the spin... and vogue!"
—Anisette Nelson, Valkyria Chronicles 2.

One day, Anisette attempted to jump off of the school roof, only to be stopped by Avan. When Avan asked her why she would do such a thing, Anisette explained that she had lied to Edy, saying she was going to put on a live concert at Lanseal. Not wanting to bear the embarrassment of Edy finding out about the lie, Anisette had decided on a more desperate solution. Avan reassures Anisette that they can pull a concert together in time for Edy's visit, but some trouble surrounding the use of the drill grounds prevents them from gathering the desired crowd. Despite this, Edy is proud of her little sister's accomplishments, and praises Anisette for her diligence.

Anisette was able to show Edy the fruits of her dance practices. By overcoming her lack of athleticism, Anisette was able to debut as a professional dancer after graduating from Lanseal.
