She may look scarred and battle worn, but perceptions can be as deceptive as the allmighty Odin whom she serves. Some call her and her sisters „Demons“, others „Odins meyar“ (Odin´s maidens). Her history has been long, full of battles but also of bravery and glory. She has come to stay near Aždajan for a while, so that she may protect him while he continues his songs of might and magic to regrow his other two heads.

Hrist - Shield Maiden of Odin Valkyr10

According to Grímnísmál 36, Hrist (from old norse for „shiver“ and „quake“) was one of 13 Valkyries (the number of Valkyies differs in different sources). The name Hrist also oftentimes was used as a kenning for „Woman“.
Thank you so, so much, dearest Sita, for bringing us this lovely rendering of a Valkyrie. I absolutely love the details and the love that you put into this Love

I always look forward to your bracelets and the stories bringing them to life Trollperle! This was no exception, Hrist is beautiful and full of female power. I can't wait to get a sister of my own ~ I think she will be Hervör alvitr or Kára, I'll know when I see her Very Happy . Thank you for sharing the myth and magic, keep them coming Hug
