Clothed in the white, feathered vestments of the Valkyrie, Skuld can appear in the world both in human and avian form. Many dying soldiers mistake her for an angel sent from above.
Skuld (the name possibly means "debt" or "future") is a Norn in Norse mythology. Along with Urðr (Old Norse "fate") and Verðandi (possibly "happening" or "present"), Skuld makes up a trio of Norns that are described as deciding the fates of people. Skuld appears in at least two poems as a Valkyrie.
