Got a question? Shoot!

“ Try to learn to breathe deeply, really to taste food when you eat, and when you sleep, really to sleep. Try as much as possible to be wholly alive with all your might, and when you laugh, laugh like hell. And when you get angry, get good and angry. Try to be alive. You will be dead soon enough. ”
Valkyries are the beautiful warrior-women of Norse mythology. These demigoddesses are usually blonde and blue-eyed with enormous swan wings, and their job is to choose from the bravest of slain soldiers and escort them to Odin’s army. (It should be noted that they were originally seen as malicious goddesses of death and that only in later Norse stories were they romanticized as beautiful warriors) Being chosen for Odin’s army after death is the greatest honor, and if you are not chosen, you spend the rest of your afterlife in a joyless underworld.
- The name Valkyrie comes from the Old Norse word valkyrja, which translates to, “Chooser of the Slain.”
- Valkyries are also known as wish-maidens or swan-maidens due to the fact that catching one would allow you one granted wish.
- If you saw a Valkyrie or visions of a Valkyrie before going into battle, it was probable that you were going to die.
- All Valkyries are completely invincible and immortal as long as they remain loyal and chaste.
- Because Valkyries are the demigoddesses of death, they are represented by the raven.
- Valkyries are responsible for the Aurora Borealis, as when they ride across the skies to escort heroes and deliver messages, their armor gives off brilliant sparks of light.
