Valkyries have the power to create doubt, confusion, and intimidation in their opponents. When using the power of confusion the Valkyrie's true form is seen, which resembles a gaunt skull.
They can also restore consciousness to a comatose person, and can cause someone to die by willing it.
Valkyries live several life cycles until their final one, and when they are near the end of one cycle they begin to lose volumes of hair each time they use their powers. When a life cycle has expired and they die, they are reborn with an accelerated aging process between birth and adulthood.
At the start of a reincarnated life, Valkyrie powers and abilities are extremely enhanced (Tamsin called it "her prime"). In their final life cycle and similar to puberty, Valkyries "gain their wings" in a process that is painful. Their powers increase tenfold, as was exhibited by a suddenly-adult Tamsin being able to choke Massimo just by looking at him in Turn to Stone.
In Dark Horse, Tamsin transported Kenzi to Valhalla after Kenzi sacrificed her life to save Bo from death by walking into the portal to Hel, thereby closing it and stopping the Lord of Darkness from rising out of his prison.
- In Norse mythology, a Valkyrie (from Old Norse valkyrja "chooser of the slain") is one of a host of minor female deities who decides who falls and dies in battle. Selecting among half of those who die (the other half go to Fólkvangr, the afterlife field of the goddess Freyja), the valkyries bring their chosen to the afterlife hall of the slain, Valhalla, ruled over by the god Odin. There, the deceased warriors become einherjar. When the einherjar are not preparing for the events of Ragnarök, the valkyries bear them mead. Valkyries also appear as lovers of heroes and other mortals, where they are sometimes described as the daughters of royalty, sometimes accompanied by ravens, and sometimes connected to swans or horses.
- Valhalla (from Old Norse Valhöll "hall of the slain") is a majestic, enormous hall located in Asgard, ruled over by the god Odin. Chosen by Odin, half of those who die in combat travel to Valhalla upon death, led by valkyries, while the other half go to Fólkvangr, the goddess Freyja's field. In Valhalla, the dead join the masses of those who have died in combat, known as Einherjar, as well as various legendary Germanic heroes and kings, as they prepare to aid Odin during the events of Ragnarök.
