Legend

Froydis Morgensen was far from a mystic. The legendary shieldmaiden had dedicated her whole life to hone her skills as a warrior, fighting with resolve, precision, and cunning against foes and monsters few would dare face, even amongst the fiercest of the Norse fighters. She was known as a pragmatic, if not a cynical warrior, and would often roll her eyes during the ancient rites that would be performed before battle, relying in no power but the sharpness of her spear and the strenght of her shield. That was before her injury, before that horserider slashed her neck open, before she almost drowned in her own blood.  But in the mists of inconsience, as she was dragged away by pain, blood loss, and suffocation... she saw something. 

Knowing her, it is hard to describe the surprise felt by the rest of her warband once she recovered from this gruesome injury. Before each battle, not only would she honor the gods and perform the rites, but she would call for Freyja to watch her fight, and she would gift each of her kills to the goddess as sacrifices, or even recruits for her godly host.  Often, Froydis would look at the skies with a zealous gaze, as if she was touched by visions, her face struck by awe or splendor.

Little did they know, but on that day, at the edge of death, Froydis saw the Valkyries fly over the battlefield, collecting the souls of the fallen with the steel of their sacred spears. In a heartbreaking moment, she recognized Freyja herself amongst the death spririts, and felt the tip of her spear linger over her... but she was refused. She never knew if it simply wasn't her time, or if she was barred  from the fields of Folkvangr as punishement for her ungodly life. This vision never left her.
