Audrey Gassenarl (オドレイ・ガッセナール Odorei Gassenāru?) is the second child born to Gilbert Gassenarl, the head of House Gassenarl and she is also sister to Baldren Gassenarl and Dirk Gassenarl. She is a devout believer of the religion called Yggdism.
Valkyria Chronicles 2
Audrey Gassenarl was born one year after her brother, and at the age of 25 is now a commander of the Revolutionary Army's Armored Division. Her high status was not just earned by her family blood, she was also an army major in the last war against the Empire where Imperial soldiers fearfully gave her the alias "Battle Maiden of the Iron Horse".
She has a calm head and is a colder counterpart to the fiery-hearted Baldren, but she is every bit as capable of understanding her situation completely. Those who underestimate her because of her nature may soon find themselves in unfortunate situations. She was killed in late November 1937 during the Second Battle of Anthold, when Class G detonated the waterwheel supporting the dam there and crushed her along with it.

Expanded Biography (VC3)
- "A realist consumed by her faith in the Valkyrur."
- —VC3 COMPLETE ARTWORKS Description
Audrey is a daughter to Count Gilbert Gassenarl and sister to Baldren Gassenarl. She supports her brother as his second-in-command of the Gallian Army's 1st Battalion. Audrey is a devout Yggdist and places all of her faith in the power of the Valkyrur.
In contrast to her hot-blooded and idealistic brother, Audrey is a realist who tends to take a calm and calculated approach to all situations. Audrey has demonstrated an uncanny talent for both military and political pursuits, and she has come to be known and feared by the nickname "Battle Maiden of the Iron Horse". Sharing her brother's concerns for Gallia's future, she was instrumental in advancing Baldren's plans for a restructuring of the country.
Audrey had been one of the Randgriz family's most loyal subjects for her entire life, believing that they were the descendants of the ancient Valkyrur. When Cordelia revealed that the Randgriz family was actually of Darcsen heritage, Audrey joined her family in the rebellion and swore to fight for a new Gallia that wouldn't be built upon lies.
During EWII, she piloted a Gallian light tank called Narcissus. Narcissus' are a type of plant, fitting in with Gallia's custom of naming tanks after plants, hence Shamrock and Edelweiss. This tank is playable for at least 1 mission in VCIII's story.
Audrey's tank, the Geirolul, is in appearance, a red/gold version of the A-model Type 36 Medium tank with the Anti-Armor Utility turret (also A-model). The most readily visible appearance change is the five rocket tubes atop the tank's turret. This battery, based on the M40 recoilless rifles of the American M50 "Ontos" tank, is mounted in a style akin to the one used to mount the T-34 Calliope on the M4 Sherman. The base tank heavily resembles the Panzer III.
