Graduate of a military academy for witches in Romagna. With a small degree of skill in healing magic, Fernandia was assigned to the magic medical corps, but she actually had a strong desire for a combat role. The Romagna Air Force forcibly assigned her into an understrength ground attack witch unit.
After studying tactics with a Karlslander dive-bomber squadron, Fernandia, together with her best friends Luciana and Martina from the academy, was assigned to the North African Front. At first their military reputation was low, but they flew many missions, even recording a destroyed heavy land Neuroi to their name. In recognition of the team's fame and overwhelmingly positive evaluations, all three were given the honor of being admitted into the Pantaloni Rossi (Red Pants). The Red Pants are an elite unit that reports directly to the Romagna Office with commanding power independent of the other three armies.
Not long after, Fernandia's unit was undergoing model conversion training, and she was transferred to the Air Combat Witches. Her experience with those enlightened her towards air combat, and ever since '44 she has been using the G-55.
In normal units, witches often team up by pairs in battles, but Fernandia usually forms a three witches unit with Luciana and Martina. If a team of four is needed, she selects the friendly Angela Salas Larrazabal from Hispania.
Even though Fernandia can be extremely self-assured, headstrong, and impulsive, she also displays an undeniable friendliness, and she is a natural leader with the power to get others to do things her way. Within the team, she takes the role of commander and also vanguard. Se loves planning operations, commanding units, and combat, but hates paperwork and pushes them all to Pilot Officer Mazzei.
Despite looking selfish sometimes, she is strangely liked by people because of her open personality.
She feels sorry that she can only perform simple treatments because she left magical medicine training on the way. She would like to study medicine again when the peace return.

- She is based on Italian ace pilot Fernando Malvezzi. Fernando, together with the archetypes of Luciana Mazzei and Martina Crespi, were responsible for the sinking of the British light cruiser HMS Southampton; this is most certainly the inspiration for their respective witches being close friends.
