The Valkyries were the ones who decide who will die in battle. Selecting among those who die a heroic death in battle the valkyries bring the brave to the afterlife, hall of the slain, Valhalla, ruled over by the god Odin. There, the deceased warriors become einherjar, and continue their fight in preparation for Ragnarök.
