Major Froleytia Capistrano (フローレイティア=カピストラーノ Furōretia Kapisutorāno) is the commander of the 37th Mobile Maintenance Battalion of the Legitimacy Kingdom. Quenser and Heivia work under her command.

Etymology[edit | edit source]

Capistrano (or Capestrano) is the name of a number of towns in Italy and Brazil, one of which was the birthplace of Saint John of Capistrano. It is also the name of an open source software tool. There are also several cocktails with the name Capistrano, using pisco brandy.

Appearance[edit | edit source]

Froleytia is described as a beautiful woman, tall and slender with large breasts.[1] She has long silver hair, slightly tinged blue[1] and purple eyes. She wears a blue officer's uniform with a skirt and black stockings.[1] She is usually seen smoking a kiseru (or Japanese smoking pipe).

Personality[edit | edit source]

Froleytia is strict and slightly sadistic at times, though she does care for the well-being of her subordinates.[2]

She is very interested in Japanese culture, with tatami mats laid across the floor of her office and various Japanese decorations placed throughout her office.

Background[edit | edit source]

Froleytia was born as a girl to the Capistrano family, which has almost 100% odds of having male children. She has been used as a bargaining tool by her family in their deals with influential noble families that want a male heir, since the Capistrano family could use her for a political marriage with families that would normally be out of reach because of her rare position. She had acquired around 10 official marriage candidates by the time of the 37th's campaign against the Mass Driver Conglomerate.[3]

She joined the military as a child soldier at age 13. At some point in the past, she was promoted to Major and gained command of the 37th Mobile Maintenance Battalion.[4] Joining the military was most likely a decision born of her desire to escape her suitors and delay the political marriage as long as possible.

Froleytia had lost four times as an Object commander before the fight against the Water Strider in Alaska: three while remotely commanding another unit and one with the unit she was stationed with.[4]

Chronology[edit | edit source]

Heavy Object[edit | edit source]

After Quenser and Heivia left their snow shoveling duties to hunt for food outside the 37th's maintenance base zone in Alaska, Froleytia gave the two a lecture while commanding an operation in the Pacific on her tablet. After finishing, she inquired about the results of their hunt, being tired of the rations as well.[1] She then sent them both off to carry out their work[5] before joining them at sunset for a private barbeque.[4] While they were eating, Froleytia talked to Quenser and Heivia about the former's previous encounter with Milinda, her previous experience and the current state of war.[4][6]

The next day, following the Baby Magnum's loss against the Water Strider, Froleytia issued the White Flag, but the enemy Object proceeded to attack the maintenance base anyway. Coming across Quenser and Heivia while directing the unit's escape, she urged them to escape as Milinda was attracting the enemy's attention with her rescue signal and told them to not let her efforts to be in vain.[7][8]

She was later contacted by Quenser from the enemy's base zone, after he infiltrated it with Heivia and Milinda to sabotage the Water Strider. Froleytia urged him to flee from the danger and didn't believe his claim that they'd deal with the Object to be anything more than a bluff, but agreed to send help if they saw the flash from the Object exploding, telling Quenser not to get his hopes up.[9] After the Water Strider's destruction, she led reinforcements to rescue the trio and deal with the remainder of the enemy's forces.[10][11]

Following the incident in Oceania, Froleytia confronted Flide about his misdeeds, leading to a confrontation with an Object affiliated with him (the Exact Javelin in the anime).[12]

A Requiem for the Flower Blooming in the Field (Anime-Only)[edit | edit source]

When the 37th were deployed to the Alps to carry out the exchange of the religious leader Klondike with the Information Alliance, Froleytia described the circumstances of their mission to Quenser and Heivia during a workout in the gymnasium. She spent the night before the transfer entertaining Klondike at karaoke.[13]

While Froleytia was accompanying Klondike in a transport vehicle during the exchange, she observed communications with and around the Baby Magnum being jammed, and dispatched the duo to deal with the source of the interference. When Milinda's perception was twisted through Flide's use of the Mirror of Truth, making her attack with the Baby Magnum, the transport was caught in the line of fire.[13] Managing to keep herself and Klondike alive, Froleytia tried communicating with Milinda to get her to stop, without success.[14]

With the council deciding to abandon the Baby Magnum and the other Objects preparing to mobilize, Froleytia authorized the 37th to help Quenser carry out a plan to rescue Milinda, declaring that they would not give up on her to the end. Froleytia watched as the plan was successfully carried out and Milinda safely ejected from the Object, together with Klondike.[14]

Sometime afterwards, she was visited by Quenser and Heivia while recovering from her injuries in hospital.[14]

Theoretical Vein[edit | edit source]

The Coming of Third Generation[edit | edit source]

In January, Froleytia had Quenser and Heivia transferred away from the 37th, claiming it to be punishment for their actions,[15] but actually because she felt that she had overworked them with constant battle against Objects and they would still be able to accomplish their goals elsewhere, though she wouldn't have minded them having their pride broken and becoming easier to use.[2]

Sometime later, as she was wondering what they were up to and thinking about how boring things had gotten recently, she was contacted by a young and tearful lieutenant colonel, whom the 37th had saved in the past, who informed her that Quenser and Heivia had interfered in the royal succession duel for the Volga District, and asked if she'd take them back into the 37th as every other unit asked claimed they couldn't handle them and nowhere could be found to send them.[2]
