Friederike Porsche (フレデリカ・ポルシェ?)

A Former "Tank-Hunter" strike witch deployed in North Africa. Despite nearly losing all of her magical ability after being wounded in combat, she commands a Karsland Division with an experimental Tiger land striker unit attached. Her lover named Hauptmann Michael Schmitt is a former Panzer commander and serves under her in the same division. He is also her reason why she keeps fighting against the Neuroi.

Despite her age and degrade in magical ability, by the time in 1943 Friederike could still muster enough magical ability to fight if need be: operate MG-34 in akimbo with limited barrier ability (Tiger in Desert 1); operate a Stuka Strike unit with 37mm cannon (Witches of the Sphinx 3) and again, MG-34 in akimbo (The Witches Of The Sphinx 4).

Though by regulation romance between a common soldier (no matter he is rank & file / NCO / officer) and a witch is usually not allowed, the story of Friederike and Schmitt's was one that, according to Marseille at the end of Tiger in Desert 2, was pretty well known - and envied - amongst Karlsland witches.

Her name is probably based on Ferdinand Porsche, an Austrian engineer/designer famous for his cars and as well contributing to the Tiger, King Tiger and Elefant tank designs.
