Brunhilde, also known as Brynhild, is the leader of the Valkyries, a group of female Gangrel descended from the ancient Einherjar in service of The All-High, and whose duty is to enforce the will of the ancient methuselah.
Born among the people of Scandinavia, Brunhilde felt in her Embrace a rebirth and quickly formed the Valkyries who served her grandsire with fervor, believing themselves to be real extensions of the Nordic myths. She fought bravely against the encroaching influence of Christianity, trying to prevent any change from the ancient ways of their people.
After 200 years of guerilla warfare against the Cainites who had come with the invaders, Brunhilde entered torpor. It was only the bloodshed of World War I that finally awoke her. She reformed the Valkyries as a group that longed for the return of the nights of paganism and warfare.
Following World War II, Brunhilde encouraged Anarch activity in order to subvert the current sect system. She undertook several terrorist attacks against the established democratic governments of Scandinavia, even assassinating the Swedish prime minister Olof Palme in 1986. She also supported Anarchs within the Free State, occasionally recruiting young Gangrel into the ranks of the Valkyries.
Unknown to many except her most loyal followers, Brunhilde managed to find the torpid body of the All-High and is mainly concerned with his security. Some rumors claim that the ancient acts through her.
