Dorothy Howard (ドロシー・ハワード Doroshī Hawādo?) is an eighteen year old Squad 7 shocktrooper who appears in the original Valkyria Chronicles videogame.


Valkyria Chronicles

Her family ran an ironworks factory in Fouzen. She dreams of designing accessories made of precious metals.

Prone to extreme stage fright, her face goes scarlet when forced to speak to others. Her frail constitution is yet more proof of her sheltered upbringing.

Following her dream, she began a jewelry company. To avoid the need to speak to others directly, her business works on a custom-made, mail-order-only basis.

Expanded Biography

Dorothy is extremely shy, and will blush whenever she has to stand in front of other people. In addition, Dorothy was born with physical frailties, so her family was always very overprotective of her. Her dream is to become a designer of accessories made of precious metals, but her shy nature prevents her from starting an actual jewelry brand. Instead, she operates solely as a made-to-order jewelry artisan. Dorothy's family owns an iron-manufacturing plant in Fouzen.

  • Dorothy is probably the weakest Shocktrooper in the game due to Stage Fright; this gives her a chance of losing all her remaining AP if she has a line of sight to five or more enemies, and can activate any time she sights or unsights enemies. Obviously, losing all AP when she is sighted by at least five enemies might as well just have her drop dead on the spot.
