V is for Valkyrie

Diana Beebe, Mermaids Don't Do Windows, MDDW, Diana Beebe's Blog, science fiction, fantasy, young adultaz15_Walkyrien_by_Emil_DoeplerNow for a creature from Norse mythology.

A valkyrie is one of a host of winged-female figures who choose who dies in battle. Then they select half of the slain to go to Odin’s hall of the slain, Valhalla.

The other half go to Freyja‘s afterlife field Fólkvangr.

I’m not sure how they choose who dies and where they go. It might be interesting to see some of them in the background in Marvel’s Thor’s universe in one of the Asgardian battle scenes.
