Her familiar is the fox.
A veteran witch with a lengthy military service record. Despite having a confirmed kill count of less than 100 craft, an oddity for a Karlsland Air Force member, her ability is still evaluated as that of a top ace.
She suffered a serious illness in childhood which left her growth stunted; despite being the eldest in the 502nd she has the next smallest build behind Kanno.
A girl with a cheerful sort of "face forward" personality, her fighting style is the very essence of cleverness. Because her body can't handle the high-speed maneuvers of dog fighting for an extended period of time it was necessary for her to learn a style that married careful observation of the target to a single decisive blow and follow-through escape.
She first met then Pilot Officer Erica Hartmann during her dismal wartime debut.
Her teaching skill, thanks to a talent for deftly influencing people meant much of the efforts of instructing new pilots was left up to her, and Erica learned most of the basics of dog fighting under her tutelage.
She's brought up a large number of new pilots, drilling them that the one thing a dog fighting ace should rely on was not unpolished nerve or some innate "genius" sense, but rather a reliable combat methodology.
She looks forward to the students she reared herself eventually surpassing her own kill count.
She constantly works to defend the new pilots in their unit from Flight Lieutenant Krupinski, saying "...and after what you did to that cutie Hartmann?". However, it's generally said that this was just bit of half-joking between trusted comrades-in-arms.
She is mostly referred as "teacher" in the 502nd JFW and she taught Hikari on how to use her magic properly. The level of her magical control and technical magical acumen is high enough that Edytha can use her magic shield to walk across water as if she were walking across the land; far beyond merely using her shield as a mere, momentary stepping stone like the Kirabushi siblings can. And what's more she can teach the principles and technical aspects required to achieve the magical control to accomplish this feat as well as teaching a witch how to use their shield as a hand hold of sorts to climb smooth, 90 degree angles without natural handholds.
Edytha has a fondness for caviar and often stockpiles a large supply of caviar in the bases food stores. She becomes short tempered if it is wasted fecklessly.
Her Pilot archetype is Edmund Roßmann. According to her profile in SWII Vol. 3's booklet, her nickname "Paula" is based on the Latin "Paulus," meaning "small." (This also parallels Edmund Roßmann's nickname of "Paule," a male variant.)
