Shadow Valkyrie is Valkyrie Armor that specialized in greatsword combat. Whoever wields the armor shall take the title of Shadow Valkyrie or Shadow Wraith Valkyrie. The armor was disappeared after its last bearer killed in an epic fight against her fellow Legendary Valkyries until uncovered by Croix Meridies who then donned the armor for her sinister purposes. Up until the final battle against Nidhoggr she ironically revived, Croix utilized Noir Fuel Spirit Devices to override the seal that contain the armor's full powers. This, and combined with her darkened heart, causing her armor taking more ghastly and mechanical form unlike other Valkyrie Armors' active form. It is also the only Valkyrie armor that sporting full face black mask with fiery green eyes instead of helmet with retractable visor.
Description & CharacteristicsEdit
As with the rest of Legendary Valkyries of Arcturus Armor, Light Valkyrie armor was created by witch-blacksmiths of Thapoli under commission of Beatrix Cavendish many generations ago. Like all Valkyrie Armors, they composed of magic energy and Solais Metal, and designed after mythological Valkyries of Norse Mythology. Beyond the mythological Valkyrie motif, the armor is designed to be both dignified and beautiful in appearance. As with other Legendary Valkyries of Arcturus Armors, Shadow Valkyrie armor set and equipment is deceptive in form: When exposed to strong magic, it will gain upgrade and new abilities. However, the power-up changes on the armor only temporary as if the armor stripped from magic that gives the said changes, the armor's upgraded form reverts to its normal state.
Version I of this armor taking the appearance of durable patterned bodysuit complete with leather boots and clawed leather gloves. The back of the suit has special weapon in form of a pair of metallic wings can decapitate a dragon, Guillotine Wings.
Accessible via unlocking First Seal.
Version II is upgrade of Version I as the witch now possesses complete set of armor as she now gained a witch hat with a pair of metallic wing-like ornaments on the sides, full face black mask, breastplate, tunic/dress with armored plating on the sides and sleeves, and greaves with wing-like ornaments on the base of the feet. The overall new coverage makes the armor less susceptible to damage and fatigue for its user.
Can be accessed by unlocking both first and second seal.
This is the true form of Shadow Valkyrie Armor accessible by unlocking all of its seals. In appearance, it is essentially improved look of Version II form as it now gains thicker armor plates, providing greater defense and lesser fatigue to its user.
Skills & AbilitiesEdit
As with other Valkyrie Armors, Shadow Valkyrie Armor designed to bestow any witch who wear it enhanced strength, defense, and power to superhuman level. Made from Solais Metal, the armor can withstand magical and physical attacks and its power can be used in Ley Lines-free areas.
Shadow Valkyrie's special ability which also shared by her counterpart Shiny Valkyrie is Valkyrie Fission. This enable her to split her body and consciousness into two copies of herself whilst retaining her overall powers. The only difference that can be told is the hair of the two are different colors: When Chariot uses Light Fission to split herself into two copies of herself, the original Chariot retain the coloration of her hair whilst the duplicate's being blue like her alter-ego's Ursula. When Croix performing the same ability on the other hand, her duplicate's hair is dark purple. Even so, the duplicate can change the color of her hair to that of original's to fool her enemies. It should be noted that both original and duplicate are actually one in the same due to the link between them: Should either or both of them severely injured, the original and duplicate will automatically merge with another, restoring both back into singular entity.
The armor also have affinity to element of darkness and alongside its sister armor, Light Valkyrie, designed to be strongest Legendary Valkyrie Armor. It fact, while light weighted and have same speed with Yellow Valkyrie Armor, the armor is heavily fortified and as durable as Green Valkyrie Armor. The armor also designed to enhanced its wearer's shadow magic as well. Unlike Light Valkyrie, the armor possesses a pair of mechanical wings Guillotine Wings that can decapitate a dragon, earning its notorious reputation.
