Coby Caird (コビー・ケアード Kobī Keādo?) is a sixty-five year old Squad 7 shocktrooper who appears in the original Valkyria Chronicles videogame.


A foreman for a carpentry company before he joined the militia, his bad back is the result of an injury suffered during EW1.

Alicia bears a strong resemblance to the daughter he lost in EW1. Seeing her is a constant reminder of his loss, leading him to keep his distance.

After leaving Squad 7, he began a school to train young carpenters. Years later, surrounded by his large family and many students, he ended his life in peace.
