Awakening is the fourth report in Valkyria Chronicles. This report becomes available for purchase at Castlefront Street at the start of Chapter 15: Citadel Ghirlandaio. The combat mission in this report is named Taking the Barious Highlands.

Story

After the Battle of Barious, all squads of the 3rd Regiment are deployed to hit multiple Imperial base camps in the Barious Highlands simultaneously.

Topography

You are split into two forces, with Welkin and Alicia (and only those two) in the north, and 6 soldiers of your choice at the southern end. A blend of Scouts and Shocktroopers work best, and bring Largo as well to deal with a couple tanks. You start at the bottom of a spiral hill, with Imperials scattered around every side.

Strategy

This mission is really easy, as the enemies aren't even Elites. Also, because this mission comes late, you will likely have Elites of your own already.

With Alicia, you can climb the ladders to her left and enter their base from behind the Shocktroopers and tents. That leaves only a couple of units to kill to clear the flag area and allow you to capture it.

Rewards

Along with the normal Ducats and Experience gains, Alicia will gain the Potential Mysterious Body, functioning like the ability Full HP Recovery from some Scouts and Shocktroopers.

Aftermath

The operation is concluded successfully, but Alicia is shot in the arm.

Later that night, Faldio enters Welkin's command tent to speak with him, but finds the Squad 7 leader and his NCOs all asleep. Faldio is about to leave when he notices a strange blue glow that turns out to be coming from Alicia's arm.

The next morning, Alicia's gunshot wound has healed completely. Though she simply says she's enjoyed rapid recovery from injuries since childhood, Faldio remains uncertain.

Notes/Trivia

  •  This is one of the few missions that possess Engineers. They are deployed in a couple areas on this map.
