Valkrys, goddess of Wisdom and
Gentle Valkrys is the goddess of wisdom, healing, peace and
mercy. She is the patron of charity and redemption. She is
the wife of Artorius and the mother of Agaleus, Omara and
Mordhal. Her sister is Ilion.
Revered equally by all the races, Valkrys is most loved by
healers, the weak, the weary and those in need of forgiveness.
Valkrys is Lawful Good.
Valkrys is most often depicted as a
beautiful woman in early middle age her long dark tresses
billowing in the wind. She is usually shown in white

Valkrys is concerned with mourning, and she pities the
suffering of others, especially the mortal races. Her tears
bring healing and new life. Yet the purpose of Valkrys is
not grief, but pity, hope and the endurance of the spirit.
She lifts up the downtrodden, and brings forgiveness and hope to
Maladriel, the Angel of Mercy -
This celestial being
appears as a snow-winged young woman with a visage similar to that
of Valkrys herself. She walks invisibly across the world and
soothes savage tempers and brings succor to the dying. When
a warrior grants a defeated foe his life, or when a dying person
regains clarity just before death, they are said to be touched by
Valoun ne Harhaz - Also known as Vallahar in the
Conorrian lands, Valoun was the greatest mortal healer ever to
live. When she died (of a terrible fever) after healing
thousands, she was taken into Heaven as a servant of Valkrys, and
continues to inspire healers and the sick to this day. It is
to her that healers address their formal prayers before attempting
any serious procedure.
