As her unit made its rounds through the realm of the divine, Melfelfon's many-colored wings shone brightly with a light that could exorcise any lesser evil being. The golden soldiers' strength was undeniable, such that few were brave enough to challenge them. She was a true defender of the Heavens, and each member of the unit was an avatar in their own right. This was the overwhelming power of the valkyrie's Golden Guard.

In Norse mythology, a valkyrie (from Old Norse valkyrja "chooser of the slain") is one of a host of female figures who choose those who may die in battle and those who may live. Selecting among half of those who die in battle (the other half go to the goddess Freyja's afterlife field Fólkvangr), the valkyries bring their chosen to the afterlife hall of the slain, Valhalla, ruled over by the god Odin. There, the deceased warriors become einherjar. When the einherjar are not preparing for the events of Ragnarök, the valkyries bear them mead. Valkyries also appear as lovers of heroes and other mortals, where they are sometimes described as the daughters of royalty, sometimes accompanied by ravens, and sometimes connected to swans or horses.
