Magic Realm: The Valkyrie

The Valkyrie is one of several new characters I would like to see added to Magic Realm in a game expansion.  The Valkyrie would not be equipped with wings, of course, but her character addition would be accompanied by a new treasure site, including a flying horse and magic spear.  The artist of the above image is thebastardson

The Valkyrie is typically seen riding a flying horse, wielding a spear and armored with a helm, chainmail or a breastplate, and shield. 

Her starting equipment would be similar to that of the Amazon, but she would be a little slower, and hit a little heavier.  She would probably resemble the Black Knight in terms of chits, but might have some grey magic to power the flying ability of the horse.

Interestingly, the first illustration, above, is uncannily similar to another famous character...

Of course Xena is a Valkyrie!

A Valkyrie or an Amazon? I can never figure out exactly which.
