Miyu in her armor. She is an alien biosynthetic from the planet Alida. By chance, she teleported from there right before the apocalypse of her homeworld on Ceros, the living planet in another system. Ceros was it it’s middleage era when she arrived, so she became the Archon - a knight who protects the world from chaos.

Common wisdom in the game industry is that it’s risky to have a female lead, because games with a female lead are harder to sell than those with a male lead. But given that Hellblade is an independent, self-published and self-funded game, we were only concerned with creating a character that’s right for our story.

Better Identification of Viking Corpses Reveals: Half of the Warriors Were Female |



"Researchers at the University of Western Australia decided to revamp the way they studied Viking remains. Previously, researchers had misidentified skeletons as male simply because they were buried with their swords and shields. (Female remains were identified by their oval brooches, and not much else.) By studying osteological signs of gender within the bones themselves, researchers discovered that approximately half of the remains were actually female warriors, given a proper burial with their weapons.”

Women have always fought. We have always been there, ‘contributing to history’. Our own, modern sexism contributes to the erasure of it.

"We have always been there, ‘contributing to history’. Our own, modern sexism contributes to the erasure of it."

I always knew it. It’s a shame, that the truth was hidden this long.
