Valkyries

    Yuuki 

Yuuki

Yuuki was once a male magical girl fan. Thanks to Hermod's magic, Yuuki is now a female magical girl fan who transforms into a magical girl herself. Yuuki is the new valkyrie and is charged with protecting Midgard and Asgard from the forces of the fire giant Surt.

  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: Yuuki does this in the chapter Game Changer in a way reminiscent of a Split Personality Takeover. Or indeed in a way reminiscent to Freya's eyes when she was trying to kill Yuuki directly.
  • Refusal of the Call: He outright told Freya he wasn't interested in being a Valkyrie and was willing to give the gem back. Too bad you can't remove it without killing yourself.
  • Super Gender-Bender: Even provide the trope picture.

    Freya 

Freya

The Goddess of War and Beauty, and leader of all Valkyries and is the first and most powerful of The Valkyries. She has conflicting feelings towards Yuuki, wanting to kill Yuuki for being a weak Valkyrie, yet desiring to engage in a physical relationship with her. Although Loki thwarted her initial attempts to the former, Freya has since resurrected two Valkyries from ancient times to find Yuuki.

  • Stripperiffic: Oh gosh... she hardly even wears anything to hide her panties.
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: She is attempting to save the Eight Realms by recruiting powerful Walkyries. The problem is: she is willing to kill those she considers weak and unworthy, and that include Yuuki.
  • You Have Failed Me: Threatened Otsana and Sheby with this.

Former Valkyries

    Otsana 

Otsana

An ancient berserker who was the Valkyrie for a time. She still has most of her powers, and serves at Freya's pleasure.

  • Male Gaze: Lampshaded in a strip where Otsana is wearing only a large t-shirt while ordering around their "host", all the frames from his perspective go up to her shoulders.

    Shebi 

Shebi

A Valkyrie from Ancient Egypt, who retained most of her powers and remained loyal to Freya.

  • Innocent Fanservice Girl: Gets confused that her nudity disturbs people. Explained by Loki that, as an ancient Egyptian, she would have spent much of her time naked before becoming a valkyrie.
  • Marshmallow Hell: Here(Warning NSFW)

Norse Gods

    Hermod 

Hermod

Hermod is the god of messengers in the Norse pantheon. He sides with the Aesir, which is led by Odin. Hermod was sent to Midgard (the mortal realm) to find the new valkyrie. He decided that disguising himself as a magical girl DVD was the best way to find one.


  • Baleful Polymorph: Courtesy of Loki, he is forced to assume the form of a cat-like pet. Possibly a marmoset.
  • Mentor Archetype: Initially, to Yuuki. Though he sucks at it, and Thor quickly takes over.

    Loki 

Loki

Loki was a giant who was found by Odin and his brothers. Despite their hatred of giants, they thought he was awesome, so Odin made Loki a blood brother, thus making him one of the Aesir. Currently Loki is chained under the earth with a snake dripping poison into his eyes because of the whole Balder incident. Loki's whole take on the incident was the that "the little snot had it coming to him." This defense didn't help him.Loki is able to project himself into the body of a stuffed white cat, so he is able once again wander Midgard. The knife he carries is for "little children and dogs that have the stones to pick [him] up."

  • Anything That Moves: According to Freyr, he even slept with monsters; though he seems to be reluctant to sleep with males.
  • Breaking the Fourth Wall: He does this once- "Excuse me, but for the sake of the viewers, can we make this battle not last 50 billion pages like the wolves battle?"
  • Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: He may looks like a mere pervert stuffed animal who acts goofy all the time, but he is able to match Freya in a fight.
  • Dirty Old Man: He is one of the oldest beings in the universe, and yet one of the biggest perverts ever. According to himself, however, he looks quite handsome in his real form.
  • Heel-Face Turn: Sort of; as expetable from the God of Trickery, his position tends to be... unclear.
  • Kid with the Leash: Subverted - it may look like this to a Gunnerkrigg Court reader because Loki can only manifest through a stuffed kitty that Yuuki owns, but Yuuki doesn't really have any control over him.
  • Killer Rabbit: A facet of the above - the doll may seem harmless, but it's still Loki...
  • Mr. Seahorse: In a nod to the original legends, Slepnir always calls Loki 'Mommy', much to the Trickster God's embarrassment.
  • Perverse Puppet: He is trapped in a stuffed animal (kinda). He's not really a villain after his first appearance, though.

    Odin 

Odin

The King of The Norse Gods.

  • Big Good: Presumably. Unfortunately, he has no idea to undo what Hermod has done, and can't fix Yuuki immediately.
  • Stealth Mentor: He sent the Auroch, Slepnir, and his ravens after Yuuki as tests.

    Thor 

Thor

Thor is an easy going sort who enjoys a good fight and loves to party. He used to hang out with Loki back in the day, but the whole "Balder incident" puts a damper on that. Though with Loki's current freedom, that may change.
  • Boisterous Bruiser: As with most depictions of Thor.
  • Drop the Hammer: Well it's Thor after all.
  • Fun T-Shirt: His says "Lightning! Fuck Yeah!"
  • Gender Bender: Not in the comic itself, but he references an event from Norse mythology.
    Thor: Loki said I was cute...
    Freyr: Loki sleeps with monsters, Thor.

    Freyr 

Freyr

Freya's twin brother and her complete opposite, Freyr opts for giving Yuuki a chance to become stronger. He allows Yuuki to stay in Alfheim where s/he can finish his/her training.

Giants

    Surt 

Surt

Surt is the leader of the fire giants and Muspellheim. He hates the Aesir for hunting his kind and forcing them to live on the fringes of the universe. He wants to get revenge and waits patiently from the edge of Muspellheim for his chance.
  • Evil Is Burning Hot: He is a fire giant, after all.
  • Freudian Excuse: A notable departure from Surt's usual Generic Doomsday Villain portrayal, this version of Surt actually has a reason for what he is trying to do; he hates the Aesir for hunting his kind and forcing them to live at the fringes of the universe. The fact that the Aesir like to throw rocks at them in their spare time doesn't help.

Creatures of Norse Myths

    The Auroch 

Myu Myu-chan/The Auroch

Myu Myu-chan the Auroch is the first beast that Yuuki faces. He is not so much dumb, but easily confused. As the large bull auroch, he is capable of destroying city blocks in a matter of seconds. But as a small "lawn-cow," he is capable of being run over by cars.

  • Sleep Mode Size: He turns into a doll-sized calf when he isn't rampaging.
  • The Unintelligible: Myu-Myu-chan can only say "Myu", but the Norse gods are perfectly able to understand what he's saying. The humans in the cast, though, have absolutely no idea.

    Slepnir 

Slepnir

One of Loki's children. He always calls Loki "Mommy," despite Loki's annoyance, due to the fact that Loki gave birth to him.
  • Dumb Blond: He's a golden-furred horse, and only slightly smarter than a box of hammers.

    Huginn and Muninn 

Huginn and Muninn

Two crow beasts Yuuki has to fight. Much smarter than Slepnir (not that it takes much).
  • Clever Crows: They're insulted when Yuuki tries to trick them in the same way as she did to Slepnir.

Montrose Academy

    Chiaki 

Shuzaya Chiaki

Shuzaya Chiaki has only one want in life: to be in a magical girl story. While this may seem silly, magical girls are everything to Chiaki. She believes that there are magical girls in this world. There just has to be. She doesn't know how right she is though.

    Taki 

Himuro Taki

Himuro Taki is a student at Montrose Academy East, where he is a office worker some of the time. Taki likes Montrose Academy East because of its strange and varied curriculum (meaning he can study Norse mythology with no problem). He also likes girls who are strong and have something unique about them.
  • The Smart Guy: On Norse lore. Pretty convenient that it's 100% real.

Other

    Haruki 

Haruki

A random Japanese man who Otsana and Shebi extort for food and board.
