Hannes Salinger (ハンネス・サリンジャー Hannesu Sarinjā?) is a thirty-one year old Squad 7 shocktrooper who appears in the original Valkyria Chronicles videogame.


Valkyria Chronicles

Born in a richly wooded part of southern Gallia, he enlisted immediately upon hearing his hometown was in the path of danger.

Having grown up self-sufficient, he is strong in both body and spirit. Unused to wearing hot, heavy gear, he prefers to walk around barefoot and shirtless.

After saving the daughter of a well-off merchant from ruffians, he took on work as the family's butler. His inability to fix tea properly keeps him up at night.

Expanded Biography

As soon as he heard that the Empire was threatening his homeland, Hannes volunteered to join the militia. Having grown up among nature in the southern region of Gallia, Hannes's lifestyle of self-sufficiency provided him with both a strong body and enduring spirit. Hannes is not used to wearing many layers of clothes, so he has a tendency to remove his uniform at every opportunity. For rescuing the daughter of a wealthy family from the hands of a certain villain, Hannes was hired by the family as a butler, but he still hasn't figured out how to pour the perfect cup of tea.
