The Valkyrjar (Old Icelandic for "Those who choose the slain") are, according to the Poetic Edda, supernatural female warriors that do the biding of the Norse god Óðinn on the battlefield by either influencing the outcome of a fight or bringing a dead warrior's soul to Óðinn in Valhalla.

Not to be confused with Valkyrja, also from Sweden.
