Valkyrie


from old norse valkyrja "chooser of the slain".

the valkyries bring their chosen to the afterlife hall of the slain, Valhalla, ruled over by the god Odin.
(Here the slain become Einherjar - the army destined to fight at Ragnarök)

I think it would be neat to have the Valkyries be the leaders as well as the destiny of
the Shieldmaidens...

Shieldmaiden!
Female warrior / amazons of the North. Might just make a little army of these…

Loki


I did a new design for Loki..
(in part based on an old design...)

-  a Jötunn living in Ásgarðr. A shapeshifter, Trickster and God of mischief... 

He is said to be able to transform into a raven.
In the stories he will sometimes aid the Gods, and at other times he is the antagonist.
Cosmologically many agree he should be seen as the Gods
dependency of the Jötunns // He was a symbol of Mans total dependency of the forces of nature.

...pretty cool 'ey?
