Völva (Shaman)Character PB:
Carly Rae JepsenGeneral appearance:
For eighteen years of age, Skuld is fairly young looking. Despite that Skuld has seen the sun in many years, the bright sunshine hasn't left her skin tanned, but rather a healthy color. While most women try to protect their skin, Millie was never particularly bothered with this; in fact, it amuses her that other girls always seemed so offended by her easiness by being out in the sun.
Skuld is likely remembered best for her eyes; exotic and slanted at an angle, they're of a cool, penetrating icy blue. Unlike her complexion, her hair is a chocolate brown, although it often becomes streaked by the sun and begins to look like a bronzed red. Skuld has never been stunningly pretty and neither is she stunning, but when she does her rituals something powerful overwhelms her and the gods and goddesses somehow look past her kind of mousy appearance and makes her look beautiful.Clothing:
Usually, Skuld is dressed in a foot-length blue or black cloak decked with gems to the hem. In her hand she wields a wand, the symbolic distaff (seiðstafr), which is adorned with brass and decked with gems on the knob. Around her neck she wears a necklace of glass pearls, and on her head she wears a headpiece of black lamb trimmed with white cat skin. Around her waist she carries a belt of amadou from which it hangs a large pouch, where she hides the tools that she uses during the ceremonies. On her feet she wears shoes of calfskin and the shoelaces has brass knobs in the ends, and on her hands she wears gloves of cat skin, which is white and fluffy inside.Personality:
Skuld is the woman that you would consider romantic. She is one of those girls who enjoy, and use the most of her time, to philosophize on the nature of love. Maybe because she's not too busy actually being loved by anybody. She often dismisses love as a foolish child. Because, a child have never been touched by the worlds gruesome hands.
If we stop considering Skulds romantic side, she has a deep personality, she doesn't only philosophize about love, but about how life and the world around her looks like it does. She like things settled and organized, and will schedule her work hours and social engagements well ahead of time. She hate's it when she get her unscheduled visions, but have learnt trough the years not to work against it!
Skuld is highly sensitive to others, which is to say that her intuition is well developed. Certainly her insight into herself and others is bright and clear. Without a doubt, she know what is going on inside herself, and she can read other people, not their inner thoughts, but their moods. She thinks it's because of her ability. Skuld also identify with others quite easily, and she usually find herself picking up the characteristics, emotions, and beliefs of those around her. Because she easy gets into other people's skin, Skuld feel closely connected with those around her, and shows a sincere interest in the joys and problems of her friends, family, and loved ones.History:
Skuld does not remember any thing before her tenth birthday. No one knows who she is, or were she came from. But one day 'her tenth they say' she just stood outside the previous völvas small cabin, twigs in her hair and sharp intelligent eyes. Some say that she was sent from the gods, to be old Jögurs apprentice. And their suspicion expanded when she started to have her visions.
The first vision came exactly one year after she had gotten to Jögurs cabin. She saw one of the young huntsmen getting killed, and she ran out in the woods to save him. But even though she tried to save him, he died a few day after in a fewer, that was when Skuld realized that if the gods wanted a person in their halls, nothing could stop them.
After that realization, she began her long journey to become a Völva. She worked hard to learn about different herbs and their magical use. She learnt how to sing the magic songs, and how to speak with the nature. But her apprenticeship ended all too soon. Her teacher got sick, terrible sick. Skuld tried everything but nothing worked. and then she remembered the young boy, and understood that the gods thought her ready to take over the staff and let the past goo. So, know Skuld is the young shaman of the Völsung clan, and have been that ever since they traveled over the sea.Family:
She have never known of any family.Skills:
Seeing, or fortune-telling. She was picked up by the last Völva because of her abilities. She is a strong seer, and therefore she got the name she now have. She can see into the future, by the use of runes, hands or the vision will just hit her out of nowhere. Member InformationPlayer's name:
