Valkyries, the Choosers of the Slain

1 Comment

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.

Below are some of the great renditions and illustrations of a Valkyrie, each art done by talented artists from DeviantArt. So, take a look at the illustrations below and make sure to visit each artist‘s page. Believe me, these artists really are great and talented! Enjoy! 🙂 More

The Four Goddesses of Dioses

The Four Goddesses of Dioses

Listed below are my characters in Dioses, the following being some of the goddesses found in the manga. Each goddess is unique and bear in mind that these goddesses are of my own version. So, there, enjoy reading! 🙂

ATLATONAN : There are confusions regarding her domain. Some say she is the Aztec goddess of lepers and those who are born with physical deformities. On some accounts, an Earth goddess or goddess of the coast. She is also known as Atlatonin. She is also one of the four wives of the Jaguar-god Tezcatlipoca.

BASTETThe Egyptian Cat goddess. There are also confusions, though. On some accounts, it is said that she is the one sent by Ra to destroy the mankind. The humans, at that time, are all wicked and cursed Ra’s great name. So, the council of the gods, with Ra, decided to destroy them and thus Bastet was sent to slay them. That’s one version, come say the goddess Hathor did it. She is also called Bast. She is the goddess of music, dancing, pleasure  and merry-making.

FRIGG : The queen-wife of Odin, king of the Norse gods. She is the goddess of marriage, also of love (though some accounts say that Freya is the goddess of Love) . She is seen as the goddess who weaves the clouds. She also has the capability to see the future but told no one about what she sees. She has lots of attendants, the most popular is Fulla. When Balder is terrified by his nightmares, it is his mother, Frigg, who extracted the oaths from all the living and non-living things not to hurt Balder. But this failed because Balder is killed by a tiny twig of mistletoe. By the way, Friday is named after her.

HERA :  The queen of the gods, she is Zeus’ wife. She is also the goddess of marriage. Their union produced Ares, god of war, Hebe, goddess of youth and cupbearer of the gods, and Eileithyia, goddess of childbirth. She bore Hephaestus alone. Some of the popular stories about her is her jealousy and anger towards her husbands’s women. Her sacred animal is the peacock, whose eyes once belong to Argos, her faithful follower whom Hermes killed.

Odin and Frigg

Odin and Frigg

younger versions of Odin and Frigg

Odin, the Norse god of wisdom, is known for being a one-eyed god. One-eyed? It is so because he sacrificed his eye to take a drink in Mimir’s well to gain wisdom and see what the future holds for them. He also has Munnin and Huggin, two ravens that fly across the world (Midgard) and then rest at his shoulders, telling him what the mortals did and some knowledge from the world, too.

Frigg (sometimes Frigga) is his queen-wife. Odin, like Zeus, indulged in several affairs. However, Frigg, unlike Hera, feels no hate and jealousy on her husband’s whereabouts. It is she who encouraged Odin to do so, for the sake of wisdom and knowledge. Frigg is the goddess of the sky, in which she spent her time weaving clouds. She is also a seer, with the ability to see the future, but never dare to tell it to anyone.

My apologies for not posting much these pat few days, just got very busy and trying to meet the deadline. Hopefully, I will be posting my works (additional pages from my manga) this weekend. 🙂

The pages include the front page, chapter page and 4 additional content pages. As of now, this chapter will focus more about Greek mythology followed by Egyptian mythology, Norse mythology and lastly, Aztec Mythology.

Also, the following chapters will be about how these gods ( I won’t give any clue 😛 ) spend their days as mere mortals, how they see that the world they ruled before is very different from the world they are living with now.

Follow Kazuya, Lee Gyul, Lu Hsien and Tetsuo as they continue to live their lives with these said gods…
