For Honor: Hulda
The darkest cults always creep back to the surface in times of despair and self-doubt. As the Knights marched on Valkenheim and conquered most of the North, the Vikings began to lose hope and turned to the Jormungandr for help. The Viking sectarians began to spread their ominous beliefs and crushed the weak in the name of their god, the Great Serpent. The legendary Hulda rose as a new leader among the Northerners and fought the bloodiest battles in Viking history to reclaim Valkenheim.
RELEASE DATE: AUGUST 1, 2019
The Jormungandr rise for the Great Battle of Ragnarok.
Formed after the Cataclysm, the Jormungandr drew their numbers from those rejected by the Vikings. Skin deformities swept the north in the post-cataclysm. The victims bonded from their shared deformities, a snake-like scaling. They named themselves for the serpent Jormungandr that, according to Viking beliefs, fatally poisoned Thor.
They’ve grown into an insular dark sect that believes itself risen from the fall of Thor before Ragnarok. Their rite of passage is a deadly ritual that honors their painful origins. Their skin is burned with acid to harden it with serpent scales. Their limbs are crushed by a sacred hammer. Many die from the ritual. The survivors are branded with the War Hamarr to mark them as mighty Jormungandr warriors.
A Jormungandr is a terrifying sight. They fight to crush the weak before the coming of Ragnarok. They believe only the most worthy must remain for the Great Battle.
