PERSONALITY: Generally calm but serious. She often says things harshly, but also realistically, coming off as a jerk. She often is hasty in making decision, especially during fights and battles, to finish a job or goal. She prefers to avoid conflict, which sometimes can be inevitable if she does not watch what she says. She is a ruthless fighter, stemming from the mentality to end fights quickly. Despite her ruthless attitude, she maintains a graceful style of handling her sword. It is difficult to make friends with her but she would keep friends close by, since she lost many during the last war. She fights to end things, even if it costs other peoples and her own lives, but knows when to turn around if it isn't worth it, otherwise the deaths would be in vain. She follows her own sense of right rather than the law: she affiliates herself with the country rather than her faction and the government.
HISTORY: In her childhood, she grew up during a war with her impoverished family, constantly moving to avoid the battles. It continued for about until she was 14, where she was separated from her family after a raid on a camp they stayed at. She wandered alone, eventually meeting with a scizor near the border of the country. For about a year, she resorted to stealing to keep herself alive. A paladin caught her stealing but instead pulled Valeria from homelessness and became her mentor. She learned how to fight and fought with her scizor and the paladin's squad, showing promise of being a great warrior. Her mentor believed she should join the Paladin ranks and Church of Arceus: Valeria does it as a return favor for being saved from homelessness. After 2 years under the watch of the Paladin, she became a full-fledged paladin at the age of 17. Towards the end of the war, Valeria bonded with her scizor after a deadly battle, becoming more distressed. After the war ended, her squad broke up and went their separate ways, including Valeria's mentor who decided to travel, leaving Valeria alone. Since losing her family, she always hoped to find them again, but as the years go by, she has been losing hope.
