Hermes Kissinger (ヒルメス・キッシンジャー Hirumesu Kisshinjā?) is a twenty-eight year old Squad 7 scout and renowned ladies man who appears in the original Valkyria Chronicles videogame.


As a child of the open field, he dislikes cramped spaces. Slender and handsome, he is physically unable to not chat up any nearby ladies. Prone to exhaustion, he lacks endurance. Though he has no trouble finding dates, he is often too tired to stay out long, leading the ladies to think him a flake.

He began work as an action star, but one broken leg later, all offers for roles have ceased coming in. Presently, he is training up his endurance under Nina.

Expanded Biography

Born and raised in the open grasslands, Hermes cannot stand tight spaces. He is a slim pretty boy who feels a need to chat up every woman he sees. Unfortunately for Hermes, he has a serious lack of stamina and can never keep up with any woman that he goes out with. As a result, he always leaves their date before it is actually over, and needless to say this has left him with a rather poor reputation among the ladies. Hermes's dream is to become an action movie star, but after sustaining serious injury during the shooting of his first movie, he hasn't received any other job offers. Hoping to improve his chances, Hermes is now focusing on building up his strength and stamina.

  • Chronic Fatigue is rather overstated; it only has a chance of triggering if Hermes' Action Points are completely depleted. The effect is to instantly end his current movement phase, even if he has not yet performed an Action. With this it best for Hermes to perform an action before his Action Points go out.
  • Hermes was a member of Squad 1 in the anime, but he was killed in action.
