Norid Saarinen (ノリド・サーリネン) is a character from Valkyria Chronicles 4.
Edinburgh army Squad E sniper, age 24. A gentle lover of nature who lives life at his own pace. Lived in northlands, surrounded by trees.

He's popular with women, but he's never really tried dating before. His extreme love of nature usually ends up driving the ladies away.
