Weight: 150 lbs
Age: Appears 23
Hair Color: Silver
Eye Color: Blue

Weakness: As the middle sister of the valkyries, Lenneth tends to be more pensive than her sisters when it comes to contemplating her sympathy for humans. At times her empathy can leave her somewhat hesitant.
Profession: Battle Maiden/Chooser of the Slain

Crescent Longbow - A longbow said to be shaped from a sacred tree from Alfheim, it aligns arrows to the lightning element on command. Deals +0 CS damage normally, and +1 CS damage to beings weak against lightning.

Description: Valkyries have the ability to alter the course of battle. Once per day, they can either increase one attack or defense roll of an ally by 2CS, OR make them reroll a roll, with the higher of the two counting. The altered roll can NOT be a botch, if one is rolled it must be rerolled.

Description: Valkyries have ethereal wings they can summon at will. Enables flight at excellent speed(90 mph).
Description: When Lenneth descends upon a town or city, she often adopts the guise of a woman named Meryl, a more plain-seeming and unassuming woman who better blends into society, though still shares some of Lenneth's physical features, like her hair and eyes. She can still wield the Valkyrie's powers in this form (except for flight) though this guise is shed when she calls her armor and weapons to her. (To be clear, Lenneth's -default- form is the Valkyrie, and Meryl is the transformation.)

To Odin's appointment were a trio of goddesses...the three valkyries, made to govern fate. Lenneth is the middle sister of the three, the others being Hrist(eldest) and Silmeria(youngest). It is generally forbidden for two of these valkyries to be on the same plane simultaneously, though Lenneth otherwise resides in Asgard till she is summoned to do Odin's bidding. Such a bidding is a rare occurence, and Lenneth is otherwise occupied with her duty as battle maiden, though Odin eventually does summon her directly in an urgent, pressing matter. Sensing the time of Ragnarok is nigh, the Aesir king commanded Lenneth to heighten her recruitment of worthy souls for Valhalla, to recruit worthy heroes for the coming war that was said would wipe out the gods themselves, between the Aesir and the Vanir.
Lenneth, however, in the process, had her memories sealed off, for she was once upon Midgard under the guise of a woman named Platina, a young lady who fled her hometown with a young man named Lucian to escape being sold to slavers in Gerabellum. In their flight, they ran aimlessly, and soon came across a field known as the Weeping Lily Meadow, known for its flowers that bore a deadly pollen. As a breeze swept through the floral plain, the pollen lifted into the air, and Platina was poisoned by the pollen, eventually dying as Lucian then fled and wept. It was not long thereafter, that Lenneth had been summoned by Odin's command.
Lenneth then served two primary purposes. The first, was to recruit and train einherjar for their battles in Ragnarok. The second, was to delve into ancient caverns and ruins, and purify the land of dark blights and beasts. When entering a town or city after hearing the call of a potential einherjar, she assumes the guise of a human woman named Meryl, and keeps her distance till she finds the fallen warrior. Her human appearance isn't far-flung from her true appearance, though she does keep a more plain appearance when in her glamour-induced guise.
