Profile

Curt and dignified, perhaps cold at first, the Lady Sif of Asgard is no one to be trifled with. Friends know her as peerlessly loyal and enemies know her as the last thing they see. Goddess of War and Valkyrie, the dark-haired woman with ice-blue eyes and keen beauty fears little. Does she smile? Yes, under certain circumstances. Does she laugh? It's entirely possible!

Personality

Click to expand.

Refined:
Raised from birth in the courts of Vanaheim and later entering the courts of Asgard, Sif is fully able to hold her own with the best of them. She won't be found twittering away over idle gossip and even more rarely chooses to wear anything but her battle-gear even while circulating with the crowds, but her smile can be sweet and her words pleasant if they need to be. Just as her sword, her words can be equally cutting, which makes her all the more fierce even in a social setting.

Reserved:
Not one to smile easily, the Goddess of War has earned a reputation for being cold. It stems from bucking expectation as a young royal and insisting that she join the ranks of the Einherjar one day in homage to her father's history as a warrior. It doesn't make her the first option for greeting parties at court.

Staunch:
Determined to hold her own in any instance, Sif rarely bends to public opinion. It means her friends are few, but those few have likely seen her laugh and possibly even cry. Her mask of distance hides a heart rich with affection for anyone she trusts enough to bring into her life. Woe betide anyone who comes after her comrades, for they'll find her sword and fury instead.

Worldly:
Sif is perfectly capable of being diplomatic when it comes to keeping the peace between factions and worlds. Having spoken to many people over the long span of her life, this experience provides her with wisdom that will be shared, generally, with a frankness that can be shocked. While it might not be commonplace for her to be supportive of peace, the Goddess of War does realizes that peace must exist.

Character Sheet

Powers

Click to expand.

Allspeak:
An inherent ability to the Asgardians, Sif can understand and speak any known language in the universe.

Asgardian Physiology:
Born to a lineage of great physical prowess, Sif is a terror on the battlefield. She has the strength to lift and hit at 30 tons of force along with an agility rarely matched. She can run at speeds exceeding an Olympian athlete and react with reflexes to avoid gunfire or arrows if given a chance. Her body's density not only makes her heavier, but more difficult to injure; the Goddess of War can take a hit from many types of extreme force and emerge with a scratch. She isn't immortal by any means and can become injuried, but her body's ability to heal spares her what could be weeks or months of healing time by shortening it to days. She is resistant to diseases not found in Vanaheim and Asgard.

Intellect:
Quick-witted and practiced in making split-second decisions on the battle-field, Sif is swift to learn new things as they benefit her or her circumstances. Her Asgardian physiology allows her to rationalize at a spectacular speed.

Skills

Click to expand.

Courtly Graces:
A member of the court must know the gentler arts as well as the martial. Sif might not readily admit that she has fun dancing, but her grace and agility makes her one of the better dancers in the court of Asgard. A natural ear for music also allows her to fully utilize her range of voice to nearly magical effect when she sings. Her preference in instruments tends towards the stringed, such as the harp and violin, but the flute isn't beyond her.

Riding:
Comfortable on horseback, Lady Sif can hold her seat in a dress or in full armor without trouble. Even the antics of her pegasus, part and parcel of being a Valkyrie, don't give her trouble.

Weaponry:
Few can beat Sif in martial combat. Her mastery of the bow, sword, and other melee weaponry is unchallenged by all but one or two in Asgard. Her ability to defend herself without a weapon is equally skilled, given she was tutored in how to utilize her armor as weaponry as well. Her title as Goddess of War is well-earned.

Willpower:
Little will get Sif to bend. She refused to fall into the cookie-cutter of being a lady of the court, refuses to fall in battle as the Goddess of War, and refuses to be taken as anything less than seriously.

Resources

Armor:
Extremely durable, the armor of the Goddess of War (breastplate, pauldrons, gauntlets, and greaves) can withstand all but a few types of impact. Its silvery sheen overtop generally red leather padding is a familiar sight in the court of Asgard.

Asgard:
Well-known and loved in Asgardian court, Sif is a protector of the royal family. She has connections and wealth to access in the form of property and gold alike as needed.

Comrades:
While few in number, Sif can count on her friends to come to her aid. Opposingly, anyone counted as friend can fully assume all of Sif's wrath in their defense, a thing absolutely terrifying.

Sword:
A gift from Odin, Sif's enchanted sword named 'Brumeoalfold', is made from Uru metal. Its capabilities include cutting through nearly any substance in the universe, deflecting magical attacks, and through a series of traced designs upon the pane of reality itself, opening portals to any place Sif knows by visitation or by viewing. The portals are not permanent.

Valkyrior:
Sif can count upon her fellow sisters to come to her aid if she calls upon them. Conversely, she would go to them as well if called upon; few things could stop this given the deep bond held throughout the Valkyrior. Her pegasus mount is kept in the royal Asgardian stables and can be whistled for even at great distances.

Vanaheim:
Her home-estate is always available to her as a place to retreat or to come for aid as needed. Even if she bucked tradition as a Lady of the Court, she is no less loved by her family and peers of Vanaheim; they've grown proud of the bold warrior in the wake of her martial successes.

Weaknesses

Click to expand.

Berserker Madness:
A state of being brought on by the submersion into war, Sif as well as other Asgardians run the great risk of injuring both friend and foe in this state. The Goddess of War has to be very careful not to slip into it. To hurt a fellow Asgardian or even a friend would mean potentially banishment if not worse, not counting the amount of self-flagellation that would occur.

Comrades:
Few are her friends, which make them all the more worthy of protection and, in the case of enemies, manipulation. Sif does fear for their safety in the corner of her heart at all times. Being a royal doesn't come with just a crown and laud and it doesn't matter that she might hold the title of Goddess of War -- it all comes with foes as well.

Goddess of War:
War is bloody and inherently cruel. Her title is great but also soaked in both assumption and fact. Sif might be beautiful, but it is a sharp beauty refined by her experiences on the field of battle. Her reputation precedes her and doesn't earn her favors as well as friends easily. She has been called 'cold' before and it is not inaccurate.
