Today Sega released a new screenshot and new artwork showcasing Valkyria: Azure Revolution‘s main villain, Emperor Claudius Powlovich Kiev, also revealing information about his background.
The Rus Empire hasn’t always been as large and powerful as it is now. It used to be simplyc called the “Rus Kingdom” and it was just a small country led by its king. Suddenly, Claudius started invading other countries followed by a Valkyria feared as the “grim reaper.” The Rus Kingdom expanded rapidly and aggressively. He’s gifted not only with great military prowess, but also with considerable political insight.
