In Norse mythology, Valkyries are the maidens following Odin‘s orders, and roaming the battlefields, deciding which warrior’s soul to take with them to Valhalla. Valhalla is a hall in Asgard where brave souls of warriors went, feasting with the great god Odin. Valkyries look fierce in the battlefield, while in Valhalla, they are the ones attending to the warriors’ needs, serving them while partying and feasting with Odin.
