Eir - Valkyrie & Goddess of Healing

The goddess Eir is by many accounts “the best of all physicians.” But scholars differ on the capacity in which she used her power. Some depict her as a goddess of healing, tending to the sick and the war-wounded. Others view her as a horse-riding valkyrie who rides into battles to decide which soldiers die and which live.

Regardless, she is very powerful. And being a healer does not discount her from also being a valkyrie. Some even believe she is a form of Frigg, foremost among Norse goddesses.
