** Since there is no use for Einherjar after Ragnarok, they were most likely reincarnated to start a new life as humans. I can't remember specifics, but I think I remember it being stated that the ''only'' exception to the reincarnation cycle is Lezard Valeth, which is why he had to sacrifice the Philosopher's Stone to be revived in the first game, and why his soul dissolves to nothing at the end of the second.

*** Extrapolating on this explanation, in the first game Lenneth constantly searches for mortals on Midgard to recruit as her Einherjar, witnessing important moments in their life up to their deaths. She is, in a sense, "profiling" likely candidates to fight in Ragnarok. Hence, "Valkyrie Profile".

** Two reasons: The game is the story of a valkyrie, and "profile" also refers to a story about a person. Also, it's a reference to the [=2D=] gameplay.

* Why is it called Valkyrie Profile, anyway? In the logos we see a valkyrie's head from the side, but I really hope that's just an amusing coincidence and there's a more meaningful reason for the title than "the developers thought it sounded cool".

*** addendum: Posing as a man could also be a way to conceal that she is a noble. She joined the knights for revenge, and would probably be sniffed out.

* Why would Odin leave his MacGuffin of Mass Destruction right next to his telephone/portal to Midgard without any kind of security ? They don't have [[PlotInducedStupidity common sense]] in Valhalla ?

* Okay, it's been a while since I've played the original game so I might be a bit fuzzy on the details, but in a world where a large amount of warriors are female and nobody really bats an eye at it, why is it that Jayle needed to conceal her gender?
