Cherry Stijnen (チェリー・スタイネン Cherī Sutainen?) is a sixteen year old Squad 7 scout and fashionista who appears in the original Valkyria Chronicles videogames.


Trends and pretty boys form the center of her world, with "Gallian Girl" weekly her preferred fix for top-notch photos of both. Her enlistment was motivated by a strong attraction to the big city. There, she found Rosie, whose freewheeling attitude and city-girl cool inspired her.

She returned home where, at only 17, she married and gave birth to a child. She divorced soon after, and now spends her days devoted to raising her daughter.

Expanded Biography

Cherry loves men and anything that is currently "in." She has a habit of saying "like" when she speaks. Cherry adores "Gallian Girl" magazine, and the only reason why she joined the militia was because it would allow her to see the big city. She considers the free-spirited Rosie to be an excellent role model. After the war, Cherry returned home, got married, had a child, and promptly got divorced. She now struggles to raise her child as a single mother.
