Valkyrie

Fighter Class Archetype

Master of multiple defenses and the spear

Valkyries are an exclusive group of top-notch female Barbarians. Named after a mythical tribe of warrior women, Valkyries are famous around the world for their prowess in battle. They often make their livings working as mercenaries, and tend to receive higher wages than most other fighters. Because they value courage above all other virtues, Valkyries are proud and dedicated soldiers.

Two hired thugs were having an argument. It seemed they could not decide amongst them who would have the honor killing their prey. It got so heated that it looked as if they were going to settle the matter with their fists. As they started posturing and preparing for a fight, a slim, but well-built woman stepped out onto the street from the tavern. The two men looked up suddenly at Brynson as she started to walk past them.

"Hey, Girlie!" one of them shouted, 'You think you could help us settle a dispute?"

Brynson looked up at them, interested enough to stop for a minute.

"We got this guy we gotta get, and I think I should be the one that gets him, but HE thinks HE should get to do it," the other one said.

Brynson paused a minute, looking at both of them. "Unless it's a child, you BOTH should get him. You're both to boorish to be assassins, and don't look like you'd be much use in a brawl," Brynson replied.

At this the two men became enraged again. "Maybe I'll get a warm up on you before doing the job myself," the larger one said, clasping his large fists into a ball.

Brynson slowly pulled out a long spear, getting in a ready stance. "Let's see what you got, boys," she said.

Both of the thugs lunged at her, one trying to tackle her, the other trying to bring his fists down on her head. Brynson easily dodged the two attacks in succession, swinging her spear around effortlessly into both of the men's heads, knocking them to the ground.

"Pathetic," said Brynson. "You couldn't even touch me."

Well trained for combat situations, Valkyries prefer fighting with long spears. In addition, they are skilled in the use of flails, polearms, swords, whips, and axes or spears that can be thrown. They can strike as hard and as fast as normal Barbarians, and are also more skilled in evasion tactics than any other class.

The various tribes of Valkyries are composed of individuals who have rejected the patriarchal structure found in normal society. They seek to demonstrate that women can be aggressive, powerful, and competent warriors, and they are among the most feared enemies of most other groups. It has been proven time and time again that they fight as well as (or better than) most men. Young Valkyries sometimes leave their tribes to combat inequality in the world, and often travel to Tellerium, a city located on the continent of Avros. Because its residents distrust the use of magic, Tellerium is the perfect place to demonstrate combat skill.
