“I'm a childhood friend of Felix and Sylvain, and our highness. Felix and Sylvain are some of the biggest problem children, so please be aware of that. In the past, if I stopped paying attention for even a little bit, I would have no idea where they headed off to or what they were doing... sigh.”
Ingrid aspires to be an ideal knight which is reflected in her principled and industrious nature. Dimitri himself claims that "she is more knightly than most knights." However, she forgets herself in the presence of delicious food.
As the heir of House Galatea, Ingrid's father desperately wants her to marry in order to preserve the house's future. She in turn is exasperated by her father and secretly wishes to be rid of her burden.
Ingrid was deeply affected by the death of Glenn, whom she both loved him as a woman and admired as a knight. He is somewhat of a sore subject for her, but still holds him to high regard and hopes to become a knight like how she remembered him. Due to his death at the hands of the people of Duscur, she holds a grudge against their people, subconsciously so against Dedue who, despite being a stalwart comrade in the Blue Lions house, is apprehensive to be around outside of the battlefield.
She likes tales of chivalry but dislikes extravagance.
