What initially started out as a Valkyrie slaying a wolf ended up as a far more Germanic woman dressed as a landsknecht and posing with a freshly killed boar. A very unpredictable girl.

Sometimes artwork (or a story line) have a way of going in a different direction than you originally planed.

A nice illustration that makes me curious about the story.

Thank you so much! As of yet I don't have any specific backstory for this character, but you can feel free to make one up if you like her! :)

The Baron had tried to get his daughter Grizelda married for many years, but she scared the suitable suitors  away with her rough unladylike manners. The Baron proclaimed that whomever killed the dreaded boar of the Blackwoods would get Grizelda's hand in marriage and a  position as commander in the Baron's army. This way the Baron hoped to attract a hardier crop of suitors.

Grizelda was not too keen on this idea. So she picked up a soldier's uniform at the laundry and one of the smaller zweihänder swords from the armory, went to the Blackwoods and killed the boar herself.

What now daddy dear?
