A UsefulNotes/{{Nintendo DS}} TurnBasedStrategy prequel to ''ValkyrieProfile''. ''Covenant of the Plume'' stars Wylfred, an AntiHero (or ByronicHero or VillainProtagonist, [[KarmaMeter depending on your choices]]) whose father was killed in battle years before the story starts. He blames his father's death, which lead to his sister's death from hunger and his mother's descent into madness, on the Valkyrie, as she left a feather with the body, and has vowed to take his revenge by seeking her out on the battlefields.

** Much of the music is from [[ValkyrieProfile the first game]]. For example, dungeon background music is re-purposed as BattleThemeMusic during the enemy phase. Other pieces, like the victory theme are put to their original uses. This is particularly noteworthy, because [[VideoGame/ValkyrieProfile2Silmeria Silmeria]] had a very different musical feel from the original, with the {{Musical Nod}}s much more subtle, so much so that you might not recognize them.

* WeaponOfXSlaying: While not as powerful as the Slayer weapons of the first two ''ValkyrieProfile'' games, there are still weapons with bonuses against specific types, e.g. Ravenbrand vs. birds.

* NoFairCheating: Using the Destiny Plume more than three times will put you into a HopelessBossFight with Freya. Supposedly the fight can be won in a NewGame+ with enough [[RareCandy Golden Eggs]] farming, but the game will still act as if you lost, leading to a NonStandardGameOver.

* NoFairCheating: [[spoiler:If you use the plume more than a certain amount of times in a single chapter, [[HopelessBossFight Freya will come and kick your ass]].]] This leads to:
** NonStandardGameOver
*** It's plainly merciful from the game, as in most cases when this happens, Wyl would be on his own or with only one companion in the next battle, rendering it nigh impossible.

* BoringButPractical: The ability "Transpose", which lets you swap places with a target. Very handy in a tactical game.

* {{Badass}}: Many, but Auguste is most notable, especially for '''standing up tall''' and shouting while being sacrificed to Hel while everyone else just lays on the ground (including himself when Reinhilde is still around... I guess he just doesn't want to scare her even more).
