- ― About Valkyries.
Valkyries are said to be one of a host of female figures who choose those who may die in battle and those who may live. Up until Clan of the Kraken update, only their corrupted brethren (known as Fallen Valkyries) that are encountered as enemies due to dark influence from Helheim, reduced into monstrous shadows of their former selves and infested Northgard.
Fallen Valkyries are aggressive and will attempt to Decolonize any territory next to theirs.
Rig and Halvard first encounter one of Fallen Valkyries in Chapter 3. Delighted at first, Rig wanted to propose alliance with her, but is stopped by Halvard who noticed that she had been consumed by corruption and beyond saving.
Depending on the difficulty the player is playing on, the number of Fallen Valkyries has been increased (on hard difficulty, each Valkyrie tile has been given +1 Valkyrie)
