BackgroundValkyria Chronicles is set in a fictitious continent reminiscent of 1930s, Europa divided in two and ruled by the Empire and the Federation. The Empire has set its sights on invading a small neutral country called Gallia, which is situated in the middle of the two great empires. The game follows a hero named Welkin and his fellow soldiers of the Federation's 7th Platoon that are fighting against the Empire intent on unifying the continent under its power. The Federation discovers that the Empire possesses a secret weapon, known as the "Valkyria"- an ancient race with special powers thought to exist only in legends. With this new discovery, the fate of the Federation's ability to win the war and a hope for a better future hangs in the balance.
