Melville Young (メルビル・ヤング Merubiru Yangu?) is a nineteen year old Squad 7 scout who appears in the original Valkyria Chronicles videogame.


Valkyria Chronicles

Full of more pep than even he knew what to do with, he enlisted. Friendly and upbeat, he is quick to befriend pretty much anyone.

A lover of all types of meat, porcavians hold a particular fascination for him. A close friend of Ted's, the two often practiced their clown routines together.

Together with his friends, he began work as a professional clown. His naturally goofy persona and trademark hairstyle predictably wins laughs from all ages.

Expanded Biography

Melville is a very cheerful and friendly guy who can get along with just about anyone. He is a dedicated carnivore, and shows a particular interest in porcavians. Melville decided to join the militia because he had so much extra energy with no way to burn it. Being good friends with Ted, Melville often helps Ted with his "clown training," which may be what led him to become a clown himself. With his naturally silly personality and unique hairstyle, Melville was very popular with young children and adults alike.
