History Edit

Pre-Series Edit

Maja's mate and kits were both killed by Hallr during The Conquering. She then took Hallr as her new mate and bore him a son, Halvden.

In The Summer King Chronicles ArcEdit

Song of the Summer KingEdit

Maja is mentioned briefly when Kjorn tells his wingbrother, Rashard, that she left a fish outside of the Sverin's den and fled, saying to Ragna that "the song has been sung".

Later, after Rashard's miraculous fly into the sea, Maja says that he was too young to know her mate. Rashard comments that she's Halvden's mother and she agrees. She then flies off to find more Vanir in Rashard's name.

SkyfireEdit

Maja is mentioned when Stigr tells Shard he can't leave The Silver Isles because Maja and Dagr would be returning in the spring. She is also mentioned by Sverin, who tells Kjorn that Halvden has the death of his father and the shame of his mother to overcome.

A Shard of SunEdit

Mentioned briefly when Caj thinks about the returning Vanir.

By the Silver WindEdit

Maja appears after the wyrms attack the Silver Isles. She tells Ragna that they didn't go to the nesting cliffs because they heard the wyrm screams, and their guide advised them not to.

She later appears when she, Ketil and others lead Kjorn to where his mate is nesting. She comments to her wingsister that her son matured into a better gryfon, but he paid a heavy price for it.

In the Short StoriesEdit

The Starward LightEdit

Maja appears first with her wingsister. They ask Brynja about what she thinks a good Long Night celebration would be.

RelationshipsEdit

Hallr & HalvdenEdit

It is unknown how Maja actually felt about Hallr, although it can be assumed that she didn't exactly love him, as she felt nothing when he died. She also probably did not feel very close to her son either, since her son, his mate and their kit returned to the Winderost, and she didn't follow.

KetilEdit

Maja's wingsister.

TriviaEdit

  • Maja's name is the same as the Croatian name, which is derived from the name "Mary". This name has a variety of meanings, such as "sea of bitterness", "rebellious" and "wishing for a child". It could also possibly mean "love".
    • The names all possibly fit her, as she was very bitter about Hallr killing her mate and kits, and possibly wished for another child, which was Halvden. The second name fits her best, as she rebelled against Sverin to serve Shard.
  • Maja is one of the only known Vanir who dislikes her Aesir mate. After Hallr was killed, she left the Silver Isles to serve Shard.
