Hrist Valkyrie is a recurring antagonist and playable character in the Valkyrie Profile series. She presides over Midgard - the lands of the human realm. Sent forth by Odin, the 'Death Maiden' is called in times of war and despair to scour the killing fields for fallen warrior souls upon whom to bestow eternal heavenly glory as soldiers in the Gods' Armies. However she is known to 'forcibly' pick warriors by killing them herself.
As only one Valkyrie can be active at a time, Hrist resides in her human host Leone until needed. Of the three Valkyries, Hrist is the most ruthless taking no prisoners, and believing the ends justify the means. No matter what the task, she will complete it. However, despite her cruel personality, she is fiercely loyal to her Warriors and her sister Valkyries, and will defy even Odin to protect them.
Hrist’s basic attire is based off of her main attire in Valkyrie Profile - Silmeria. A white Robe with a tasselled gold hem covered by black/gold pauldroned armour, on her head a feathered helm resting on shoulder-length hair. In EX Mode, Hrist gains Black wings and equips a lance.
Her alternative costume 'Death Valkyrie', colours Hrist as depicted in-game with dark purple armour. In EX Mode, her wings are dark purple.
Her 3rd costume 'Black Hunter' has Hrist appear as her human host Leone, losing her Valkyrie armour and dressed instead in a leather bodysuit with armoured chest and legs. Her hair is cut short. In EX Mode, her aura is light purple
Hrist fights as a Relentless Force, constantly attacking and controlling her opponent's movements if caught in her attacks. While her attack power and speed are high, she has little defensive ability and most of her attacks are close to mid range making her vulnerable to long-range fighters.

Missing a sequence skips to the final blow.
