NAME: Lady Sif
ALIAS: Lady, Sif, Warrioress, Shield Maiden
OCCUPATION: Shield Maiden
MEMBER GROUP: Asgardian
POWERS AND ABILITIES: Sif shares powers common among all Asgardians, with her dense physiology granting superhuman strength greater than the average Asgardian female and on par with the average Asgardian male, limited invulnerability, as well as advanced stamina, speed, agility, regen and reflexes. Sif is also extremely long lived and maintains her youth and vitality.
She is also highly skilled in hand to hand combat and proficient in use of cold weapons, favoring a sword and shield in battle. She is often said to be the best female fighter in Asgard. She has a knack for strategy and tactics from her many centuries of warfare.
PLAYBY: Jaimie Alexander
PLAYER NAME: Violet
OTHER CHARACTERS: Victoria Matthews
LIKES: Swords, Knives, Bows, Arrows, Punching things, Thor, Swimming, Justice, Honor.
DISLIKES: Lawbreakers, Liars, Backstabbers, Flowers (cut not planted, what is the point of killing something to prove love?), Anything trying to harm Thor, being insulted for being a woman,
STRENGTHS: Sif is as loyal as they come, she pledged herself into Thor's service when they were children and has never looked back. She is a fierce friend and even fiercer enemy, defending those she loves with both her sword and her wit. She can be very blunt and doesn't see the point in faking what she can and cannot do. If she has a question...she asks.
WEAKNESSES: Lady Sif is skilled physically but she has no magical abilities like some of her brethren. Though she hides them, her feelings for Thor are her greatest weakness, the only time her emotions ever seem to get the best of her. Despite her very rough persona, Sif is secretly a romantic, waiting for a warrior worthy of her to sweep her off her feet...just not where everyone one else can see. She has a reputation to protect after all.
GOALS: To die a warrior's death and to protect Thor and those she loves. She's sort of narrow minded that way. She secretly hopes that someone will come along to make her forget the feelings she has for Thor, as she knows he will not return them.
FEARS: Sif fears a life of leisure, she is a warrior. She also fears failing to protect Thor or causing him harm in any way. She fears dying of some sickness on her deathbed.
OVERALL PERSONALITY: Sif is rather stoic, she has a deadpan sense of humor with outsiders but her true friends know the vibrancy she has and her zest for life. She loves a good challenge, with her warrior brothers constantly daring each other to do stupid things. Most only see her very serious, very rough exterior. Intimidation is how she keeps the majority away. Trust must be earned, not given. For those that earn her trust, her honor depends on protecting those around her, which she will do with her very life if it comes to that.
PARENTS: Unknown, though she knows she shares one of Heimdall's mothers. They constantly joke about which one it could be.
IMPORTANT RELATIVES: Sif grew up with Thor, Loki, Baldr, Hogun, Fandral, and Valstagg on Asgard, she considers them to be her warrior brothers...yes, even Loki. Odin has been like a father to her and she knows that he supports her feelings for Thor, though they both know that Thor will do whatever he feels.
IMPORTANT PERSON: The most important person to Sif is Thor, though she knows those feelings are not reciprocated. Oh, she knows he cares for her, but not with the same intensity.
OVERALL HISTORY: Sif was born on Asgard, though the details of her birth are shrouded in mystery. She knows she shares one of Heimdall's nine mothers, the Maidens of the Waves, though she has no idea which one, nor does she know who her father is. She can only assume it is an Asgardian since she looks so vastly different then her brother. As a child, she shared the Asgardian golden locks. Her hair was so beautiful that many envied her beauty. From a young age, she was raised with the Shield Maidens, young girls of Asgard vying over the chance to one day become a Valkyrie.
Loki grew so envious of how everyone fauned over her blonde hair, making him feel more like an outsider since he looked nothing like his family, that he cut off her hair while she was sleeping one night. The next morning, Sif was heartbroken and Thor came to her aide forcing Loki to apologize in true Asgardian style. Loki went to the Light Elves and convinced them to make her enchanted hair made of pure gold. However, Loki's nature got in the way and he took the strands before the final magics could be cast. Upon returning to Sif, he placed the strands to her head where they began to attach and grow as if they were real...but at the last moment the gold turned to black and Sif's greatest feature was lost forever.
She threw herself into her training after that, though her feelings for Thor grew out of his defense of her. If she could not be the most beautiful, then she would be the best warrior. It was for this that Thor chose her to go with him on so many grand adventures and eventually Sif pledged her life and sword to his protection. Of course, she always distrusted Loki though his brothers could not be dissuaded.
Over the years, she earned her place amongst the male warriors of Asgard, the only Shield Maiden to be chosen for Thor's inner circle. She followed him to the ends of the nine realms and back again. Even when he disappointed his father enough to warrant being banished to Midgard, Sif did not abandon him. What she hadn't been counting on was Thor falling in love with a human woman. While she may not have let any of the emotions show on her face, Sif's heart was broken. Still, she could do nothing that would hurt him and that meant protecting the frail human. Jane Foster was intelligent, but she was not a warrior and Sif did not understand what Thor saw in her. She did her duty and protected Midgard from the vile treachery of Loki...all the while somehow managing not to say I told you so. She has stood by Thor's side, and she will continue to do so even though he has chosen not to follow in his father's footsteps and rule Asgard. While she originally remained behind, life in Asgard without Thor and Baldr has been...boring. Look out Midgard!
