Berlin (ベルリン, Berurin) is a fan-made character for the anime and manga series Hetalia: Axis Powers. She represents the capital city of Germany.
A little fierce-looking, Berlin is a old woman with dirty-blonde hair and dark green eyes. Though she looks no older than most of her peers, she has a tough demeanour and an authoritative no-nonsense approach. When on official business, she usually wears a modest high-collared green dress, heeled ankle boots and occasionally a small crown perched on the side of her head. Otherwise, she dresses comfortably but decently, and ties up her long hair in braids that coil neatly into a bun at the back of her head. She sometimes wears glasses to read, and has worn a green army uniform several times previously.
Personality and InterestsEdit
Firm, rational, resilient and very sincere, Berlin has a sharp gaze that sees through and challenges everything. While she looks rather fierce, she is largely a peaceful person and secretly a natural dreamer. She particularly appreciates contemporary art, and enjoys films, and music, with a high regard for education.
While she's not particularly pessimistic, she is distrustful and regards unconditionally kind actions with skepticism. Apparently, she used to be quite timid and demure as an infant, although she'll deny this if questioned. While her economy is not a striving one, she is incredibly adaptive and makes the best out of what she has, and has an incredible amount of toleration for people, no matter how much she may disagree or dislike them. Berlin also rarely gets angry, although she is often easily irritated, just as she rarely beams or laughs loudly, although she frequently smiles. She seems quite adamant about keeping fit, and eats healthily.
Despite their seemingly compatible personalities, Berlin and Germany are actually a little at odds with one another, with Germany feeling that he can't quite understand Berlin, and Berlin never being able to fully agree with how Germany thinks. However, despite Germany's rather awkward shows of affection, the two genuinely care and worry about the other.
