Angela Salas Larrazabal (アンジェラ・サラス・ララサーバル, Anjera Sarasu Rarasābaru), is a veteran Witch of the 504th Joint Fighter Wing, originating from Hispania and attached with the Hispania Air Force's 'Escuadrilla Azul and the Elite Corps of Romagna 'Pantaloni Rossi'. She is referred to as "Angie" by her friends.
Born to a strict family of officials. A veteran whose Witch ability manifested at an early age, and has been flying since the beginning of the war in Europe. She fought in Karlsland as part of a dispatched unit, and later volunteered to fight in Romagna. Now an honorary member of the Red Pants.
She aspired to become an aviation witch at an early age because she admired the sky. However, because the recruitment in Hispania was non-existent due to lack of equipment and the absence of witch squadrons, Angela learned how to fly by herself. During a self-taught campaign in Hispania, she volunteered in the nearby Romagna Volunteer unit and received training there; she later received officer training as well.
She was selected to join Hispania's expeditionary force to Karlsland, the Escuadrilla Azul, a unit consisting of Hispanian veteran aces. She fought in various locations all over Europe and was later appointed commander of this unit.
She was successful with her squadron and was sent to Ostmark when the full-scale progress of Neuroi began. She performed steadily in this battle and was awarded the Karlsland First Class Iron Cross. After the fall of Ostmark, she continued to fight in the withdrawal battle with the Karlsland army and withdrew from the southern part of Karlsland to Romagna through the Alps. Seeing how she has a history in the Escuadrilla Azul, she might have met Hartmann and Barkhorn, two of the best Karlslander aces, during the evacuation of Karlsland. After this, she fought in the Mediterranean area as the Escuadrilla Azul commander.
Also around that time, her partnership with Wendelin Schröer of the JG27 in the North Africa front played a great role in the crushing of large-type Neuroi after the Operation Sphinx. Despite being a Hispanian - who are known for their merriness - Angela was a partner that Wendelin had good compatibility with. Both being "(wo)men of few words", their conversations were extremely uninteresting, kept to only a minimum necessary number of words. Only in one instance, they had an endless, heated debate about eating habits.
With the situation in Gallia worsening, the Escuadrilla Azul continued to fight in the Romagna area as they headed south, meeting up and temporarily joining forces with Romagnan troops deployed near the border. Being well-supplied, the Escuadrilla Azul performed, and lived well up to their title of elites. She was recommended to become an honorary Pantaloni Rossi member.
After Gallia was liberated by the 501st Joint Fighter Wing, the Escuadrilla Azul was to return to Hispania, but they remained in Romagna in response to a request to join the 504th Joint Fighter Wing. It was also at that time that she was officially recognized as part of the Pantaloni Rossi. It is extremely unusual for a witch from another country to join the Red Pants, and while the ceremony took place in secret, the lieutenant had a chance to shine.(When she talks about that time, her face turns red and she denies it).
To show respect for Romagna, she fought in the Pantaloni Rossi uniform during Operation Trajanus. In the chaos after the mission failed, she remained on the battlefield to buy time for the unit to escape (note: while not explicitly mentioned in the original text, "the unit" here refers not only to the Red Pants but everyone present, as other sources show). Despite shooting down many Neuroi, she herself suffered the most serious and grievous injuries in her squad. Rescued with great difficulty, she is undergoing long-term medical treatment in 1945.
A quiet girl with a strong sense of duty and responsibility, along with having a stoic, reserved, and pensive personality. She is also taciturn, strict, serious, and extremely resilient due to the origins of her family. Perhaps because she had continued to fight as a volunteer without relying on her homeland, she has the habit of trying to solve things alone.
She has a good friendship with Flight Lieutenant Godfrey, Flight Lieutenant Gentile, and Flying Officer Schade. Interactions with the 504th's members have been steadily relieving her of heavy emotional burdens, though she remains weak against compliments such as 'cute' or 'pretty'. Although Jane and Dominica's "lovey-doveyness" amazes her, she looks upon it with a smile, seemingly not quite aware of the goodwill directed at her.
Also, she often discusses the manner of eating rice with Fusoian people.
Her special magic ability, yet unnamed, enables her to fill her bullets with a lot of magic, making them explosive. Since it strikes a good balance between consuming magic power and having good basic attack power, she prefers using anti-tank rifles. Due to her great firepower, she is often used as a trump card against large Neuroi, but due to the nature of her special power and her personality, she remained on the battlefield for too long during the battles, often resulting in heavy injuries, like her performance during the Operation Trajanus.
