- "I'm still active... both as a soldier and as a woman."
- —Gloria Durrell, Valkyria Chronicles 3
Gloria embodies experience, being the oldest squad member of Squad 422. She is also second only to Imca for time spent within the Nameless, having been active for two years, and shows no sign of slowing down. Despite her advanced age, Gloria is more than comfortable handling heavy weaponry such as anti-tank lances and machine guns. While friendly to her squad-mates and a reliable source of advice, Gloria's past is defined by her extensive links to various forms of organized crime in Gallia. Years prior she had operated as the Madam of a brothel, discreetly gathering information on the shadier dealings of her clientele, including nobles and politicians. She also indicated that it would be her most likely line of work after the war with the Empire ended, propositioning Riela Marcellis with a job that she was "a natural" for, though more knowing squad member quickly dissuaded Riela. After she was arrested on charges of smuggling weapons into Gallia, Gloria asked to be enlisted into the Nameless rather than go to jail.
Gloria holds dear her own concept of justice, despite the less-than-legal nature of her past occupation, with corruption and might-makes-right mentalities especially rubbing her the wrong way. In the case of the former, her knowledge of underhanded political maneuvering gave her a window into Prime Minister Borg's mind when word got out of his dealings with the Federation, and considered selling out your fellows in order to save your own skin the lowest of lows. In her own experience, she liked to use the motto, "A road is just a road," meaning that a means to an end is inherently neither good nor bad; it is how an individual chooses to use it that determines how they are judged.
- "A veteran soldier armed with a full understanding of "human nature" who has connections in underground societies."
- —VC3 COMPLETE ARTWORKS Description
Gloria is a 62-year old female soldier with a love for booze and tobacco. She will often refer to herself as an old hag and has no problems being addressed as an old lady, though she does hate being treated like a helpless senior. She was a beautiful woman with plenty of admirers in her youth, and according to her she's still "got it".
Gloria herself desired to be placed in Nameless after she was arrested for smuggling foreign weapons, and only Imca has been in Nameless longer than she has. She doesn't hesitate to speak her mind and can come off as a bit brash, but she cares about her squadmates and takes particularly good care of her female comrades.
Due to her long history as the hostess of a brothel, Gloria has some deep connections in society's shady underworld. Gloria's been through a lot in her life, so accordingly, it takes a lot to shake her up. Believing that going by the book won't be enough to save Gallia, she has allied herself with mafia organizations on more than one occasion. Gallia's government was quite apathetic and uncooperative when Gloria lost her son many years ago, and she is therefore quite distrustful of them.
Since she has mostly lived in Gallia's seedy underbelly, Gloria felt no need to abandon her homeland just because she lost her citizenship. After Nameless was disbanded, Gloria returned to her life in the underground where she tells tales of Amy and Annika to any youths who stumble into her territory.
