Forged in the labs of the Zanuka project, the original Valkyr was subject to cruel experiments, leaving her scarred, angry and frighteningly adept at killing.

This is Valkyr, the tormented, the experiment.

Valkyr was crafted from torment, Tenno. Take control of her rage.

Release Date: November 20th, 2013

Valkyr is a berserker-themed Warframe. Driven by feral rage, her attacks rend her prey with fury and ferociousness, while her tortured cries break the imposing silence of the Tenno presence. Valkyr was unleashed in Update 11.0.

Lore

Previously having thrived among the Tenno in her natural Gersemi form, Valkyr is known for her capture and subsequent torment at the hands of Alad V. The obsessed Corpus scientist would bring Valkyr to his lab on Themisto, Jupiter where she would be restrained and subjected to harsh experiments. This mad science would greatly expand the Corpus' knowledge of Warframe design, and consequentially left Valkyr maddened and scarred.

Ultimately, Valkyr was deconstructed and used to produce the Zanuka prototype, Alad V's companion fighting machine. However, blueprints of her components can still be found after defeating Alad V in combat.

Valkyr's abilities reflect her madness, accompanied by cries of anguish.

Trivia

  • "Valkyr" is derived from Valkyrie. According to Norse Mythology, the Valkyries were a host of divine creatures in service of the gods that brought the "chosen" among the fallen up to Asgard (where the gods resided). It was generally believed that dying in battle with your honor intact was a sure way of being chosen.
    • This is further reinforced by her Kara Helmet and her Gersemi Skin, both of their names having ties to Norse Myth.
  • Thematically, Valkyr's design was inspired largely by felines:
    • Valkyr has visible claws on both her hands and feet, and Hysteria gives her an additional set of claws on her hands which accents the ability's wild, feral nature.
    • Her Bastet Helmet, is named after Bastet, the Egyptian Goddess of Home and Family, who was commonly depicted with a cat's head.
    • Her Passive – added knockdown recovery bonus and immunity to heavy landings – belie a feline's agility.
    • A now-patched bug unintentionally caused any equipped Whip to extend while Hysteria was active, giving the appearance of a tail.
  • She is the second female Warframe whose base stats defy a trend of fragility; despite having low shields she has the highest armor value of all the Warframes.
  • Both her Warframe Profile video and in-game description verify that she's a product (or possibly a failure) of the Zanuka Project.
  • Valkyr is the only Warframe which has human-like audible cries, voiced by Digital Extremes community coordinator, Megan Everett.
  • Valkyr is the second Warframe to replace Alloy Plates with Circuits in her construction, following Saryn.
