"Another Edy legend is born!"
—Edy Nelson, Valkyria Chronicles 3

Edy Nelson (イーディ・ネルソン Īdi Neruson?) is a seventeen year old Squad 7 shocktrooper. She is a popular character in Japan and the east for her pig-tails and tsundere personality, so much so that she received her own downloadable content called Edy’s Mission: Enter the Edy Detachment.

Her younger sister, Anisette Nelson, also appears as a shocktrooper from Class G in Valkyria Chronicles 2.

Edy appears as a member of Squad 7 in the Valkyria Chronicles anime and Valkyria Chronicles 3; and as a non-canon playable character in Valkyria Chronicles 2.





As a self-proclaimed actress growing up in a tiny rural town, she was quite the starlet. Though proud, she lacks coping skills.

Unable to forgive anyone who draws the public's eye away from her, she feels a strong (and one sided) sense of rivalry against Rosie, the squad's top trooper.

Upon hearing of Rosie's success singing, she tried to become an even bigger star, only to find she was tone-deaf. She is now training to become a real actress.


She proved to be one of the most popular characters in the game so the development staff turned her and Homer into the official spokesmen for the Valkyria Chronicles franchise on the "Front Line Journal" blog.

She is also the star of "Edy’s Mission: Enter the Edy Detachment" where she, Homer Peron, Susie Evans, Lynn, Jann Walker and Marina Wulfstan defend a small village from a large group of Imperial invaders.

Edy later went on to star in another set of DLC missions titled Challenges of the Edy Detachment.

Edy's singing in the DLC, Enter the Edy Detachment!

  • Edy quickly became one of the most popular female characters amongst fans, due to this she received her own figurine. She joined the original gashapon figure set of Alicia, Isara, Eleanor and Rosie alongside new releases Lynn, Selvaria, and Jane Turner.
  • Despite her popularity Edy is one of the worst shocktroopers in Valkyria Chronicles due to her Panicky potential, as this will almost always activate when advancing underfire - a role shocktoopers usually excel at.
  • She was later chosen to appear in the Valkyria Chronicles "Bikini" gashapon figures set, featuring fan favourites from Valkyria Chronicles posing in bikinis and beachware.
  • Edy stars in and lends her name to two sets of downloadable content missions titled Challenges of the Edy Detachment and Edy’s Mission: Enter the Edy Detachment in which she commands a group of her Squad 7 comrades against Imperial forces.
  • Edy both cameos in the Valkyria Chronicles 2 story and is available as a character in the hidden "Edy Detachment" bonus squad. Entering the code CR6BG1A9LYQKB6WJ (NA/EU) or TKBHCNBERHRKJNFG (JP) will recruit the squad to your roster in game.
