Valkyries are warriors of supernatural beings from Norse Mythology in High School DxD.
Originating from Asgard, the Valkyries are powerful beings who serve the deities of the Norse myth and whose roles are equivalent to that of Angels, where as they guide souls to the afterlife and protect the Norse gods from threat. It is comprised of only female warriors.
The term Valkyrie also comes across more as a profession rather than a species one is born in, as any girl born on Asgard can become a Valkyrie through school. Rossweisse has even stated a desire to establish a Norse magic school in the Gremory territory, training female Devils to become Valkyries.
It is also a tradition for the half-gods to create and polish their unique magic, techniques, and traditions passed through their lineage, then pass it along to the next generation through carving it into a emblem, which would be then carved into their body and soul, and so on.
Valkyries look similar to humans females, while in battle they wear Valkyrie armor that normally has a pale blue color scheme. Their attire is Valkyrie armor, which consists of a white breastplate with gold and pale blue accents and matching, finger-less gauntlets, boots, hip guards, and wing-shaped hair clips. They also wears a black leotard underneath their breastplates, black thigh-high stockings, and a pale blue cloth wrapped underneath their hip guards, all of which are clad with pink lacing.
All Valkyries wear a dress armor uniform.
Valkyries wield a range of different equipment, varying from all types of magic weaponry such as swords, wands etc.
All Valkyries have the use magic, typically Norse based as their own system of magic and spells ranging from defensive, elemental, cloth altering, support, teleportation, communication etc. They're also trained to be fighters with the use of various combat weapons.
Like most supernatural beings, Valkyries also have increased physical abilities, such as superhuman strength, endurance, and speed.
