@nekomoon: Please don't take this the wrong way, but I do
do research. I've read the sagas and Eddas
, if that's what you're referring to. And the story deviates from the original in a number of points:
Regin doesn't attempt to kill Sigurd, having grown too attached to him. Sigurd recovers his memory and returns to Brynhild. He's always had a vague sense that something wasn't right when he suddenly fell in love with Gudrun. The number of deaths is reduced. Although, he'll probably never really trust Regin again, given that Regin revealed his original intentions.
Odin is different in significant ways from his Norse counterpart. For one thing, he's more trustworthy, along the lines of Gandalf. Although the Valkyries are still omens of battle, their role is along the lines of a Distaff Counterpart
of the Einherjar. He's still not above killing if he thinks he can achieve his aims, though.
