Franca Martin (フランカ・マルティン Furanka Marutin?) is a 20 year old shocktrooper and member of Class G who appears in the Valkyria Chronicles 2 videogame.


Valkyria Chronicles 2

The older sister of Nichol Martin, Franca cared greatly for her brother as he was the only family she had left. Unbeknownst to Franca, the two were not actually related by blood.

After Nichol's enrollment at the Lanseal Military Academy, Franca quit her university studies and followed to ensure his safety. Nichol had always been frail and Franca was concerned military service would be too much for him if he was unprepared. She hid her overprotective nature by constantly berating Nichol for supposed failings and mistakes. Franca also sought to ensure Nichol did not garner a reputation for excellence as a soldier as a way to ensure he would not be sent on dangerous missions. Nichol however sought to prove himself a capable man to his sister and volunteered to undertake additional missions.

When presented with a medal of valor Nichol had earned during on one such mission, Franca reacted badly at the thought of her brother placing himself in danger. During another incident when Nichol went missing after a routine patrol, Franca panicked and demanded Class G deploy immediately to recover him. After their success, she revealed to Avan just how much she cared about her brother. While impressed, Avan could not help but feel Franca was taking the concept of tough love a bit far.

After graduating from Lanseal, Franca enlisted in the military, coincidentally following Nichol's enlistment and was given command of her own squad.
