The old Norse word valkyrja means something like chooser off the slain. Valkyrie are women sent by Odin to choose whom should fall in battle. In Odin's hall, Valhalla, Valkyrie brings mead to the warriors chosen to dwell there in their afterlife. In many myths Valkyrie also play a more human role at daughters of kings or lovers of the hero.

On all sides saw I

Valkyries assemble,

Ready to ride

to the ranks of the gods;

Skuld bore the shield,

and Skogul rode next,

Guth, Hild, Gondul,

and Geirskogul.

Of Herjan's maidens

the list have ye heard,

Valkyries ready

to ride o'er the earth.

Völuspá

The colour is an intense red with overtones of magenta and pink.
