Shieldmaidens (or shield-maidens) are female vrykul warriors. Most of them serve the Valkyra and the Valarjar through them, though others were found in the ranks of the Winterskorn clan or the Hyldnir.

Trivia

  • Shield-maidens are present in real-life Scandinavian folklore and mythology. The mythical valkyries may have been based on the shieldmaidens, and as such it is not surprising to see the vrykul shieldmaidens mostly as Valkyra.

This article or section includes speculation, observations or opinions possibly supported by lore or by Blizzard officials. It should not be taken as representing official lore.

Vigdis the War Maiden may be considered a shieldmaiden. Similarly, battle-maidens like Scourge battle-maidens, Valarjar battle-maidens, and Ymirjar Battle-Maidens may be shieldmaidens or at least similar to them.
