Mature & Violent
Valkyrie is a Warborn War Horse of Wintherai. Known by many as Wintherians.
*Loyal: Despite any overwhelming odds, Valkyrie stays loyal.
*Authoritative: Valkyrie's strong voice and reasoning overcomes more obstacles than fighting.
*Dislikes Equestrians: Due to past incidents and near death experiences caused by some of the Equestrian Guards, she has deemed them a personal liability to her and her legion. This is particularly a general distaste to some of Equestrian Armed Forces, not Equestrians as a whole.
*Cunning: Throughout the years of being more strategical and out maneuvering her enemies, Valkyrie has become extremely cunning.
*Motherly Figure: To many, she is very motherly in the way she looks out for her legion and those she is to command. She believes strongly in leaving none behind. If this means her demise to save her legion, there would be no question. She would do it in a heartbeat.

<p>Comparison to reality - To compare what Wintherai is like from today's history. It would be a mix of Medieval and the Roman Empire.</p>
<p>Valkyrie was born in the season of Aegis. The guardian and founder of Aegius, capital of Wintherai. Because of this, she would be sent to the legion to be raised as a soldier. These were known as Warborn and were not allowed to be outside of military life unless they were in a reserve legion in between campaigns. Warborns made up the backbone of the Legions.</p>
<p>Valkyrie began in the 4th Legion of Wintherai under Captain Zirria. During the Skirmish of Veletii and Battle of Veletii, Valkyrie had made a name for herself in battle after Centurion Calibris was killed during battle. She was put in charge of Calibris Cohort, name soon changed to Valkyrie Cohort of the 4th Legion.</p>
<p>In time, the 5th Legion would be founded by Valkyrie, making her the Commander and Captain of the 5th Legion of Wintherai with ten cohorts and ten specialist divisions.</p>

<p>--All other History presented in Roleplay--</p>
<p>(All Events taking place after Act I of the Wintherai Legions: Story)</p>
<p>Varakshi from Northwest of Equestria threaten to invade Equestria to get to the ports and invade Wintherai. Military alliance is established between Equestria and Wintherai. The 4th, 5th and 6th Wintherai Legions are sent to the North into Equestria from the ports of Veletii.</p>
<p>Forward fortresses are made in the Frozen North to encamp the legions. Supply lines were negotiated to keep the legions replenished.</p>
<p>Kadai, a Lunar Guard during this time, is sent to assist against the Varakshi Skirmishes. Losing multiple soldiers and guards to arrow fire in the process due to lack of shields and organized fighting. Wintherian Legions deny further support from the guard due to casualties from this point on. Valkyrie herself takes full blame for their deaths and is haunted by them.</p>
<p>The Varakshi presence is subdued and the 5th and 6th Wintherian Legions are sent back to Wintherai to fight against the Uhonians. Facing many losses, the House of Sirus began to think of army reformations such as the formations, tactics, and arsenal. The old Legionary armor that consisted of some steel and leather was ditched for a newer version with chain mail and steel plate armor. The design was also changed and made default for all soldiers.</p>
<p>A Mercy Guard Captain by the name of Ezekael Camdon was sent over to Wintherai assist in medical reforms and training the use of medicine and surgery to the legions. Valkyrie had been injured in battle and suffered life threatening injuries. Ezekael was able to save her life as well as teach her more about the idea of independance outside of a legion. This caused moral conflict between Valkyrie's loyalties to her nation and to what she felt was right. It would forever shape the way she thought. One story was that of a Gryphon whom went against fate and became a hero.</p>
<p>A Lunar Guard, Gilded Oak, is sent by Princess Luna to assist in sabotage and frontline assault. Proving herself, Valkyrie and Gilded find themselves close in terms of fighting together. Gilded's fighting style influenced the 5th Legion's brutal tactics and allowed them to fight more openly and more effectively. Valkyrie and Gilded grew closer in the coming days.</p>
<p>The 5th Legion adapted a military tradition of unrelenting force, no fear, and fierce brutality. Becoming a commonly feared name to many Uhonian Armies.</p>
<p>The Campaign against the Uhona is completed and the 5th through 9th Legions were put on reserve. Valkyrie stays in Equestria during this time.</p>
<p>Word has it that the faction of Elverni was attacking by sea. Wave Buster and Valkyrie make their way to the Southern ports of Equestria where the 2nd Navy was waiting to have the legion board.</p>
<p>During this time, the 4th Legion the was kept in Equestria was heading further North towards the Luna Bay where they found a fortress occupied by another faction whom were thought to be defeated years ago by the Vigil. The 4th Legion took heavy casualities along with the 3rd and 4th Navy.</p>
<p>The 5th Legion was then brought back to Equestria to assist in the siege of the Luna Bay followed by the 2nd and 3rd Navy along with the last of the 4th Legion. A Warband led by an old comrade of the Vigil, Airborne Noire, would fight alongside the 5th and 4th Legions.</p>
<p>*Gains trait of "Dislikes Equestrians" during siege.</p>
<p>Ezekael Camdon and Valkyrie meet again, a year after their initial meeting back in Wintherai.</p>
<p>Valkyrie resigns as Captain of the 5th Legion until further notice after a near-death experience.</p>
<p>After the Siege, the 5th Legion stayed in the Frozen North to hold the North West of Equestria. A Solar Guard Lieutenant by the name of Aurelius shows up upon the invitation from Valkyrie personally. He trains with the 5th Legion. Valkyrie takes up the title of Captain once more.</p>
<p>Word had it that Wintherai was in the midst of Civil War. Those fighting for the change of the military tradition and fate of the Warborn, and those for the tradition. Valkyrie and her legion stay on the fence for some time until it is decided what direction they will head. Either way, fighting against any of the other twenty legions was inevitable.</p>
<p>The Civil War ends. The Republic falls and an Empire is formed once again. Valkyrie gains title of General.</p>
