Kaede Fujieda (藤枝 かえで Fujieda Kaede) is the acting Vice Commander of the Imperial Combat Revue. She was originally Deputy Commander to the short-lived European Star Division.
A very professional and competent deputy commander. Not much different of her elder sister, she also has a very caring behavior towards the Flower Division.
She sometimes misses her late elder sister, as she sometimes get saddened due to that.
Outside of this, much like Ayame, Kaede has a spontaneous and very carefree side at point of even being sometimes comical as all the other flower division members, but at same time she can be more commanding, serious and even with more attitude than her sister as the vice-commander of the Flower Division, as she showed in the movie that she used a karate chop against one of the antagonist soldiers, or when she talks in a calm manner but quickly changes into a severe leader to maintain the order during the stage plays.

The next day when Ogami and Kaede watched the ongoing shooting with Sumire at Studio 13, a chandelier suddenly fell but Sumire immediately downplays it and continue her off-script acting as if nothing happened.
