Roleplay: Class E Chronicles
An RP on Fan Fiction.net taking place in/based on the world of Valkyria Chronicles, and specifically the of Valkyria Chronicles II, covering the times and fortunes of one of the groups of unsung heroes of the Gallian Civil War, Class E.

As EC 1936 comes to a close, the continent of Europa is wracked by war, most prominantly the titanic struggle that is the Second Europan War between the two dominant superpowers, the East Europan Imperial Alliance and the Atlantic Federation, with continental and thus global supremacy. However, between their feet but far from beneath their notice lies the true subject of the story.

The Principality of Gallia has struggled to survive and maintain its' neutrality in the line of fire between the two warring juggernauts. Thus far, it has succeeded albeit at high cost. However, a new threat now threatens from within. Having narrowly avoided conquest by the Empire two years ago, Gallia has since managed to make peace with their old enemy, and for a while it appeared that there would be time to recover and rebuild from the trauma of a conflict that claimed over a tenth of the Gallian population and most of its' military in just over half a year.

The peace was scarcely signed when Archdutchess Cordelia gi Randgriz revealed her true heritage (and the heritage of her family line) as Darcsen rather than Valkyria (as they had maintained for centuries) in an effort to try and heal the wounds of racial prejudice.

This backfired horrifically, as large segments of the population rebelled against the idea of being ruled by a Darcsen, many of them literally. In response, opponents of the government launch what they call the Gallian Revolution, aimed at not merely the deposition of House Randgriz, but also the eradication of Darcsens from Gallia entirely.

Still devastated from the invasion and legally unable to call upon the national militia (and unable to necessarily trust them to remain loyal if they were) in the civil war, the government is forced to take drastic measures to mobilize forces to confront the insurrection, and one source they tap are the cadets of Lanseal Royal Military Academy, who are called upon to man the Southern front almost alone.

Sound similar so far?

Well, this is where a *few* differences start to pop up.

Has a very much so Work-In-Progress Character Sheet. As of this March 2012, Class E Chronicles has undergone a complete reboot, making a new timeline to kick-start from the very beginning.

To learn more about Class E Chronicles, get to know the characters, and possibly join the RP yourself, go to the Class E Chronicles page on Fanfiction.net.

This Roleplay contains examples of:

Tropes of the New Continuity:

Tropes of the Old Continuity:

  • An Arm and a Leg : Happens to Adam in Arlem.
  • Beneath the Mask: Priscilla is an example of one, hiding her true color. Scarlett as well, though she's a Stepford Smiler.
  • Broken Bird: Scarlett plays with this trope a little, though Elizabeth is a much more fitting example. After losing her boyfriend in a squad-wide massacre in Barious desert by Selvaria Bles and the Imperial forces, Elizabeth has gotten much more cynical and serious with her outlook on military service. She blames herself for falling in love and making herself "weak" in the process. But her experience and outlook has made her into something of a Stern Mentor towards the younger Class E students, often encouraging characters like Shrinking Violets into shaping up and being braver.
    Elizabeth: "Ugh... falling for him was... a mistake. My parents, I could deal with. The squad's prejudice, I could deal with. All of their insults, his insults, they were things I could deal with. But falling for him made me... more emotional fragile than I could've possibly imagine. And thus, on that fateful day... I was broken."
  • Can't Hold Her Liquor: Katie pretty much exemplifies this trope, and made more so horrific by the fact that she's a genki girl. During the New Year's party, she takes one mere swig of champagne, then goes off to try and hit on Katarina, gets in a verbal fight with drunk Zamuel, ends up being apprehended by Ashley, Mikhail, and Adam, then passes out on Ashley's bed, but not before making drunken pick-up attempts on her as well.
  • Captain Ersatz: Zach Seitz is described to look like Rambo in terms of appearance.
  • Class Representative: Meline Bertrand thus far.
  • Dances and Balls: Class E had an opportunity for this on New Year's, though very few people actually danced.
  • Dude, Where's My Respect?: Connor(/Zach)'s reason for defecting from the GRA.
  • Fetish Fuel Station Attendant: Eclaire exhibits this, as she is a French Maid who also likes wearing fishnets and short skirts with the standard Lanseal uniform. Cranked up to Eleven when you realize she is also a submissive servant who serves her master, Excella, in any way she pleases...
    Kevin: "And just what is the nature of your relationship, anyway? Pardon me if I'm in a bit of a state of disbelief, and pardon me extra for being blunt, but if I didn't know any better, I would say that your relationship sounds like something along the lines of a young man's wet dream... or Katie's, for that matter."
  • Gollum Made Me Do It: In this case, Excella made me do it. Katarina often struggles with a persona that takes the form of her deceased sister. There have been times where Excella actually takes over...
  • Heterosexual Life-Partners: Katarina and Eclaire. The latter is the former's servant, and has been so since she was first found by Katarina's family. The two have been good friends since childhood, and Eclaire actually got into Lanseal so she could serve as added assurance that Katarina would be okay out in the hardships of campus life.
  • Leeroy Jenkins: Zach Seitz and *ESPECIALLY* Adam Wade.
  • Les Yay: Carol and Katie holding hands and touching their foreheads together while talking about how they'll stick up for each other.
    • It doesn't help that they both swing that way
    • One could say that Katie tries to promote this between herself and practically any girl she comes into significant contact with, such as Erlina or Ashley.
  • Little Black Dress: The center of a comical skit. Erlina wears a rather nicely form-fitting one inspired by Audrey's own during the New Year's party. She brought Miles along to help her judge the dress, for a male's opinion... naturally, he reacts, and hilarity ensues.
  • Name's the Same: Zach, Connor's inner self, and Zach Seitz, a Rambo expy. Don't get them mixed up.
  • Never a Self-Made Woman: Let’s face it, if Headmaster Lawrence Kluivert wasn’t Katarina’s uncle, she wouldn’t even be at Lanseal because of her Split Personality disorder.
  • Schoolgirl Lesbians: It's very obvious that Katie is one of these, but so far, all her interests are one-sided.
  • Shell-Shocked Veteran: Emeryk.
  • Connor is often refering to his inner self as Zach whenever he talks to himself. Not to be confused with the other character named Zach.
  • Sole Survivor: Katarina of her family, and Scarlett of her first two classes.
    • Kevin lead a squad of civilians in defense of his hometown when it was attacked by The Empire . While the makeshift militia succeeded in buying the citizens time for evacuation, Kevin was the only survivor of his particular group. He's gotten over it with only the occasional moment ofsurvivor guilt.
    • Garret is one of the few students who also survives alongside Scarlett in the series of the class' unfortunate history.
  • Split Personality: Katarina and Connor
  • Stepford Smiler: Scarlett is definitely one, and she may fall under types A and B.
  • Unfortunate Names: Katie's last name is Syrup, a fact she is rather bitterly aggrieved by.
    • This spins from her original name, Kaede Shippuru - which means "Maple Syrup".
  • Written-In Absence: Garret and Sarah both have this in their background. The former was actually a member of Class E for the last 3 years, making him one of the sole survivors of the class' history along with Scarlett. He was gone, due to him being off visiting the remains of his hometown. Sarah on the other hand, was cleared to be admitted to Lanseal, though difficulties with her parents prevented her from going sooner.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Katie sports locks of green hair. This is actually lampshaded by a fellow squad-member during the Arlem skirmish, who believes she has "camouflage growing on her head" while traversing through a patch of tall grass.
