Niflheimian Lindworms are a type of lindworm native in Niflheim, realm of cold and darkness which connected with the rest of Nine Realms by Yggdrasil featured in Little Witch Academia: Witches of Midgard.
Description & CharacteristicsEdit
Niflheimian Lindworms are race of serpentine dragons native at Niflheim, but a number of them somehow made their way to Midgard during the era of Nine Olde Witches, presumably due to at that time, Nine Realms fall into chaos following the war between Norse Gods and Jotnars. Their presence in Midgard become problematic for Nine Olde Witches as the largest of their kind, Great Lindworm, prone to leaving destruction in its wake in spite of displaying no actual hostility towards humanity and simply leave it alone. Unfortunately, the God of Destruction Loki, who was on the war against Norse Gods and outraged that Yggdrasil bestowed Nine Olde Witches immense magical powers to help humanity in the absence of Norse Gods, captured all lindworms that appeared at Midgard and enslaved them all. This includes Great Lindworm, who the fallen god forced to wreak havoc and killed million lives. This proved to be Loki's undoing however, and Great Lindworm freed itself from his control and sided with both Nine Olde Witches and surviving Norse Gods to defeat their common foe. But Loki won't let himself defeated without a fight, as he, Heimdall, and the legendary serpent killed each other in a devastating battle. To honor the legendary serpent's sacrifice, Nine Olde Witches uses Yggdrasil's powers to purify its remains so its inherent black magic won't ravage the world upon its death and allowed its soul to reincarnate in order to regain peace it lost, leading to birth of Pomokai Holoholonas. Nine Olde Witches' followers also took a portion of its scales for study in hopes of creating elite group of witches who can fight powerful adversaries including Jotnar, leading creation of Valkyrie Corps.
In spite of their reputation as legendary beasts of mass destruction, Niflheimian Lindworms appeared to be more peaceful than it seemed, showing little to no hostility towards anyone it encountered. Although capable of communicating, it was implied they choose to express themselves through action rather than words. They are also beings endowed with great biological and magical abilities, having large amount of black magic inside their body.
For combat, Niflheimian Lindworm has incredible physical strength, flight, and immense magic power. On physical combat alone, a Niflheimain Lindworm can stomp or swatting a target to death like a bug with its arms, able to use its tail to ensnare and capture, use its mouth to bite through its enemies, and squashed foes with its sheer weight.
