The Valkyrie (also known as Female Warrior and Lady Fighter) is a recurring class in the Disgaea series first introduced in Disgaea: Hour of Darkness. They are essentially a female variant of the Warrior class.
Valkyries are female humanoids who have spiky hair with a cowlick at the top, wear iron boots, and wear shorts. They also wear two belts attached together like a bra, as arm bands, and on their pants.
In their default color, they are light skinned with green hair, their belts are brown, their pants are black, and their boots are white iron.
It is rare for a demon to have the potential to become a Valkyrie, but those with potential are taken in as the single apprentice of a retired Valkyrie and are then known as a "Liebe". The Liebe then goes through tough and intensive training which teaches them fighting and survival skills. Due to the hardships associated with their training, Valkyries tend to have a tough personality. Magic Knights are said to be a subgroup of Valkyries.
Valkyries are the generic physical attack class, who are easily trained to use a sword or axe.

The Warrior in Makai Kingdom is most proficient with Daggers, Swords, Rapiers, and Spears.
In Norse mythology, a Valkyrie is a "Chooser of the Slain", selecting those who die valiantly in battle and sending them to Valhalla, where they become Einherjar.
