Nora Valkyrie was born in a small village outside of Mistral, living peacefully for some years. Her father was from the kingdom and met her mother when she was trying to sell simple jewelry in a market on one of the lower-middle levels. He purchased a bracelet and asked her out to lunch, which began their relationship. The two made a rather fitting couple, Her mother’s calmer demeanor balancing out her father’s energy. He had a bit of an entrepreneurial mind, helping her sell her traditional jewelry.
They were engaged after dating for only a year, and Nora’s mother soon became pregnant. Shortly after that, they moved to the village she was born in, wanting to be closer to her grandparents in their later years. They stayed, and raised their daughter there. But one day, it was attacked by grimm, with Nora and her mother escaping with a small caravan who were fleeing, her father assumed dead. A few days later, the caravan itself was attacked, and Nora fled into the forest. After a cold night alone, she found herself in Kuroyuri, where she lived for a short time before its destruction, scavenging food where she could.
After the destruction of the village, Nora and Ren hid in the ruins for several days, before a group of huntsmen arrived to check out the damage. The group escorted the children to Mistral, where they were taken in a kind old woman who lived alone, due to the death of her husband. She took care of them, raising them and introducing them to her children when they visited.
The two went on to attend Sanctum Academy, but decided to apply to Beacon Academy in their last year, thinking it would be a nice change from Mistral.
During the Fall of Beacon, Nora joined other students from the various schools in trying to protect Beacon from the White Fang and later Atlesian mechs. Following the silver light that immobilized the Dragon, the White Fang retreated, and the mechs disposed of, everyone was evacuated in the brief period before grimm began congregating at the school, drawn to the frozen monstrosity. Nora, like many others, took part in the reclaiming of Vale, temporarily attending school at Signal with her peers.
Nora spent the FRA with her team, enjoying the symbol of peace that stood in defiance of the White Fang's efforts.
