(Norse Mortal)HELGI

Also known as HADDINGJASKATI

Putting two and two together and quite possibly coming up with nine - which was a very popular number in Norse mythology - Helgi was originally Haddingjaskati.

He was aided in battle by the love struck Valkyrie, Sigrun, who took the form of a swan and weaved magic spells of protection.

Unfortunately she didn't think to protect herself and accidently flew into her own lovers sword. As she flapped and bled and made whatever noise it is that injured swans make, Helgi was distracted and died at the hands of Hrómund.

As it turns out, Odin had plans for Helgi, and possibly orchestrated the whole sorry episode. He was pencilled in as leader of the Einherjar, the gloriously slain warriors, who will stand with the Gods at Ragnarok.

Obviously you have to be gloriously slain first and Sigrun cried for days over the loss of her beloved. Deciding Odin was a shit boss, and the job had become untenable, she retired and took a whole new direction as Kara.
