"Times have changed. So have the military and war itself..."
—Eleanor Varrot, Valkyria Chronicles 3

Eleanor Varrot (エレノア・バーロット Erenoa Bārotto?) is the 3rd Regiment Captain and direct superior to Welkin Gunther in the Valkyria Chronicles videogame and anime.


Eleanor is a tall woman in her mid-thirties, with black hair tied up in a bun and green eyes, which she wears a pair of glasses over. She wears the same Gallian militia uniform as her subordinates, with a short red cape at the back.


Smart, wise and dedicated, Eleanor has a strong concern for her troops and will go to extra lengths to ensure their morale. She is especially fond of Squad 7 for their bravery and service, and never gives them a mission that she doesn't believe they can handle, though she generally has faith that they will always succeed. She also tends to turn a blind eye to some of Welkin's most outrageous strategies, for the simple fact that they get the job done.

Eleanor is a very strict and professional commanding officer who expects people to operate within the rules of war. She considers the attacking of one's own comrades to be deplorable, regardless of reason; after Welkin punches Faldio after the latter reveals it was he who shot Alicia, which he did so to awaken her Valkyria powers, Eleanor is disgusted by both of them and confines Faldio to the stockade and sentences Welkin to 24 hours in isolation.

Although she seems cold on the surface, Eleanor is far from it and is in fact a very kind and caring woman when off-duty. She considers her subordinates to be her friends, particularly Largo, whom she's known since their first years as soldiers and affectionately calls her "Elle". However, their relationship can be somewhat distant at times, mostly due to Eleanor's inability to get over the death of her lover Frederick, whom she dislikes Largo bringing up. She also enjoys reading, and owns a huge number of books in her private quarters.


Valkyria Chronicles

Eleanor is one of the most feared yet respected officers in the Gallian military. Drafted during EW1, she joined Gallia's militia as a sniper, electing to remain in the military after the war's end. Her work ethic quickly saw her promoted. She is often dealing with General Damon of the regular army, who looks down on the Militia's soldiers as base and unrefined.

An avid reader, her private quarters are a sea of books ranging from economic treatises to children's literature. One local bookshop owes her its livelihood. During EW1, she and Largo were posted to the same squad. They were both decorated after one operation that saw them defeat five enemy tanks on their own. A lust for revenge for her slain love, Frederic, drove her to remain in the militia until, moved by Largo's words, she was able to lay her past to rest.

After EW2, she retired from the armed forces, and began a publishing outfit. Later, she and Largo married, and it is said that she spends her vacations with him at his farm, wearing a straw hat that he made for her.

Varrot appears as a playable cameo character in Valkyria Chronicles 2. She is a non-canon playable character that can be unlocked by leveling the Scout Class to 50.

Expanded Biography (VC3)

"A tragic woman who climbed up the military ladder in hopes of avenging her lover."

Varrot was a veteran soldier in charge of the militia's 3rd Regiment. She proved herself to be highly effective in battle and earned the rare honor of being a female officer within Gallian's military forces. Even after the First Europan War was over, Varrot stayed with the military for the sole purpose of exacting revenge for her lover's death during the war. Through hard work and sheer force of will, Varrot eventually earned the rank of captain. Largo was a former comrade of Varrot's from her days in the First Europan War. They worked exceptionally well together, and one legend tells of them taking down five enemy tanks between the two of them, a feat for which they were awarded medals. Since Largo left the military scene for a while after the First Europan War, Varrot came to outrank him, but their mutual respect and trust never changed.

Varrot was plagued by her obsession with revenge for a very long time but through Largo's patient help and support, she was eventually able to move on.

This is implied in the final sentence of The Gallian Army in the Glossary section of the game.
