Description of Aspects
High Concept: Valkyrie in training
Valkyrie training takes years to complete. You have just finished your first few training missions.
Trouble: Squire to Donar Vadderung
Donar is familiar with your family, and aware of your weapon crafting skills. This led to the ignominious assignment of you as his squire to tend to his weapons.
Aspect: Raised by the Dvergr
Your parents were both killed in glorious battle. You were raised instead by dwarves who taught you many secrets to weaponsmithing.
Aspect: Charged with the care of Gungnir
Donar has personally charged you with the caretaking of his spear, Gungnir. You are to protect it with your life. Whether or not you are allowed to “use” it is more ambiguous…
Aspect: Awarded the “Ascending Drengr"
Monoc Securities awarded you the coveted “Ascending Dregr” for your valor and integrity in your first few assignments. This earned you both the admiration and jealousy of your peers.
Aspect: In my sister’s shadow
Your sister, Kara Burg, is a high-ranking full Valkyrie working in the New Orleans area. Kara was well into her career as a Valkyrie when your parents died.
Aspect: Temporary assignment to New Orleans
You have been asked to assist Rikard to establish a Monoc Securities headquarters in New Orleans. (Kara recommended you for the assignment.)
