This is that Mythology story I was talking about. All rights of Valkyrie Profile belong to Enix, etc. This is just a fan fic and I have altered it to my liking, the plot has nothing to do with the actual game. I rate this story PG-13 for the usage of bad words at certain times, characters dying, blood and gore. Do excuse any typos you may find.Asgard Legends
Book 1: The New Chooser of the Slain
The moon shone brightly and the stars flickered with life high above the sky. A gentle breeze flew across the lands. Hidden behind the shadows of the night, two godly figures shared a conversation as they stood watch outside of the lonely monastery that served as an orphanage.
"This is as far as I am allowed to accompany you," a female's voice was heard. "Have you understood all my words of guidance up to this point, Valkyrion Saga?"
A simple nod was given in response by the other figure.
"Good. I believe you are you ready to perform for Lord Odin. The All-Father wouldn't have chosen you if he did not think you were able for the job. You have been given a new life, Saga, a new opportunity, prove to Lord Odin that he made the right decision in making you an Asgard God, the new chooser of the slain, a position coveted by many in Asgard."
"I...will," came the fidgety reply from Saga, who was young looking and dressed in a pearly, shiny light armor that covered his arms, legs and torso. A helmet in the form of a dragon's head covered and protected his head. "But Freya, what if I fail? What if I do something wrong during my missions?"
"Lenneth did not fail before, neither will you. Even though this is different than what she did millennia ago, you have her blessings, her sword, and all of Asgard's favor. Go, Saga, forget your past, forget that you were once a dark servant of queen Hel, forget that you obliterated many of my kin once, go and perform for Lord Odin and earn your place in Paradise. Your first mission begins in that orphanage there."
The lean warrior bowed slightly at the other figure. Freya, who was the 2nd in command in all of Asgard, the world of the gods, bowed right back, then she stepped closer to the warrior and kissed him on the forehead.
"I will be summoning you at times," she concluded. "You will know of it and will be told what to do. Go now, Saga, and help Asgard tip the balance of war back in our favor. And be careful, there will be many enemies to deal with, Queen Hel and Brahms already know of our movements and you know they are not happy with you..."
Saga nodded, already knowing all that Freya was repeating as a last warning for him to contemplate on. They shared a long, quiet stare. A few heartbeats later, Freya simply disappeared from his view, leaving him standing alone and very confused with his own self.
He drew his fine sword out and contemplated it thoroughly. Saga had already seen it too many times, it was a powerful and beautiful sword, once wielded by the lady valkyrie herself. It was much different from the dark sword he had once wielded.
Listening to his inner thoughts, the god turned to stare at the orphanage that was to be the place of his first appointment with a fallen Midgardian. He put the sword back in its scabbard. He then closed his eyes, lowered his stare to the ground and sighed deeply. Feeling profoundly saddened at the desperate shouts of horror he could already hear within his mind, even when those shouts still did not come to be, the Chooser of the Slain flew off toward the orphanage, eager to acquire his first companion in what was to be a long and arduous mission.
(Chapter 1 at a glance)
Characters Appearing: Valkyrion Saga, Shan-Tastic
Bosses/Monsters: Lifestealers, Mondragora.
Chapter Info: Shan loves her orphan brothers and sisters, too much in fact that she decides to remain behind as head of the house when the Matron goes out to get supplies to make it through the harsh winter. Two days have passed since the matron's departure and all seems to be going well, however, as the late hours of the night began to fall...)
Also, if you are gonna follow the story, get used to this map and its locations. I might upload a better one with more details such as mountains, etc when I post again, I need to scan it first or take a pic of it.
