Yoko Martens (ヨーコ・マルテンス Yōko Marutensu?) is a thirty-seven year old Squad 7 lancer who appears in the original Valkyria Chronicles videogame.


Valkyria Chronicles

She ran a well-loved Randgriz eatery until donating all the food in her larder to refugees one day and joining the militia.

Largo's resemblance to her ex-husband causes her to avoid him as she searches elsewhere for a man to act as a father to her one son.

The war's end saw the reopening of her shop, where she later met and married a regular ten years her junior and bore twins. The whole family now helps cook.
