Valkyria: Azure Revolution Details Emperor Claudius And More Changes From Fan Feedback



We previously got some information about Valkyria: Azure Revolution getting some changes from fan feedback. The official website gives us a full list of its new changes in addition to new character details.


Claudius Powlovich Kiev



Claudius Powlovich Kiev is the Emperor of the Rus Empire, one of the five major empires of Europa. He’s the hero that used his ambitions from having been born during chaotic times to make the small nation in Rus Kingdom into a grand empire during his lifetime.


With the Valkyria feared as the “God of Death,” Emperor Claudius was able to invade other nations using his military power in order to rapidly expand and forcibly bring them under his control. Claudius, who is a gifted tactician and knows his way around politics, continues conquering nations by force.
