Assassin's Creed Valhalla: Who Is The Main Character?

Valhalla offers a new lead character, but who is Eivor?

Assassin's Creed Valhalla continues the long-running franchise's transformation into an RPG, again offering both a male and female protagonist.

Unlike Odyssey's choice between Alexios and Kassandra, however, both of Valhalla's protagonists are known as Eivor – and both are canon.

Here's everything we know about our new Viking lead.

Assassin's Creed: Who is Eivor?

Eivor is a Viking raider and the head of a clan in the Viking Age. While leading their clan to a new home (in England, where much of the game takes place), Eivor is forced to take some land by force following confrontations with the Great Heathen Army.

While the male version of Eivor was the only one featured in the game's announcement trailer, the female Eivor is seen in the statue of the game's collector's edition.

Which Eivor is your favourite?

Of course, this being Assassin's Creed there's also a modern-day plotline to follow. Here, we'll be reunited with Layla, the contemporary lead character of both Assassin's Creed: Origins and Odyssey.
