My master is currently Vidar-sama, and your current master is the Red Dragon over there. It seems we have no choice but to face each other!

–Brynhildr to Rossweisse, Volume 25, Life.DxD vs Life.GOD —Red Dragon—

Information

Brynhildr is the Chief-Valkyrie of the Valkyrie squad in Asgard who serves the Norse Gods as well as Rossweisse's senior who taught her most of her magic. She is currently serving as Vidar's aide.

Appearance

Brynhildr is a beautiful woman to the point of being described as transcendental with long light blue hair. Outside of battle, she usually wears a professional black suit. In battle, she wears Valkyrie armor similar to the one that Rossweisse adorns in combat.

Personality

Brynhildr is a serious woman who seems exasperated with her duties of watching over Vidar whose cheerful nature clashes with her serious demeanor. She is also very strict with Rossweisse who is her junior due to Rossweisse's clumsiness and critiques Rossweisse's openings in battle. However, like Rossweisse, she is also a bit bitter due to the fact that she does not have a boyfriend although she tries to play it off as just waiting for the right man to come along.

History

Brynhildr is a resident of Asgard who became a Valkyrie and was able to become recognized as the strongest Valkyrie of her generation, inheriting the name Brynhildr. While serving in Valhalla, she became Rossweisse's senior and taught her about magic, as the two would spar with Brynhildr managing to win every one of their sparring sessions. After Odin's departure to the Isolation Field Barrier, she was assigned to become the aide of the new chief-god; Vidar.
