- —Gisele Fleming, Valkyria Chronicles 3
Gisele Fleming (ジゼル・フレミング Jizeru Furemingu?) is a member of Gallian Army Squad 422 who served during the Imperial invasion of 1935. Players acquire her if they choose route B in chapter 9. If they choose route A, they will get Elliot Oates instead.
Especially quiet and often keeping to herself, Gisele remained an enigma to her squad-mates for a long time after she was sent to fight alongside the Nameless. The only things commonly known about her were that she had been incarcerated for a long time before her transfer and that, when alone, she sometimes seemed to be talking to herself. From a young age Gisele had often found herself left alone, and, without friends, was left to her own devices and thoughts. During this period she developed an intense fascination with fire, anthropomorphizing it into her only friend, and later found herself arrested for arson after bringing a "friend" to life. Locked away in solitary confinement, the isolation only further ingrained her antisocial behavior.
It was not until the squad found themselves lured into a trap that her reasons for being among them were made clear. Having charged into a small town after hearing word of an infamously cruel Imperial unit occupying it, the Nameless were puzzled by the enemies' swift retreat. Incendiary bombs were then set off by the Imperials in order to trap and kill the 422nd, the sight of which enchanted Gisele. Thankfully for the squad, Gisele's obsession with fire included knowledge of its weaknesses, and under the orders of Kurt Irving she starved enough of the flames in order to allow herself and the rest of the Nameless to escape.
- "A mysterious girl whose best friend is fire."
- —VC3 COMPLETE ARTWORKS Description
Gisele grew up in an orphanage, but her superior intellect made it difficult for her to make friends with children of her own age. Some people in high places took note of Gisele's gift and brought her into a government-funded research facility. Unfortunately, Gisele considered fire to be her best and only friend and she accidentally set a few things ablaze while "playing" with that friend. Repeated cases of arson got her arrested and sent to prison, but she somehow managed to cause more fires while incarcerated. The prison system couldn't handle Gisele's pyromania so she was assigned to Nameless.
Gisele doesn't feel guilty about setting fire to things, and was more than happy to be sent to Nameless if it meant she could get out of prison. She only speaks as much as is absolutely necessary, doesn't express much emotion, and is so apathetic about food that she will eat any meal with a straight face no matter how terrible it tastes to others. Gisele has shown that she is willing to do just about anything without being held back by things like morals. She is rather stubborn, however, and will not do anything that she does not want to do. Strangely, Gisele seems to follow Kurt's orders quite obediently.
After Nameless was disbanded, Kurt took a moment to speak to Gisele and insisted that she refrain from doing anything unlawful in the future. Gisele accepted this request as Kurt's final order, and hasn't committed arson since. She went to work under the guidance of a charcoal worker in the mountains, and though she does feel the urge to set fire to the entire mountain from time to time, she has managed to hold that temptation at bay.
