There's just isn't a lot of detail about the red knight in the original. I just want to take basic personality traits and background stuff from a source that actually has some detail.

Go ahead, but if it's too similar to Ace, I might have to ask you to change it a bit.

Sigrun
left-aligned image

Name: Sigrun Odinsdottir
Which character is it based off?: Norse Valkyrie
Gender: Female
Class: Paladin (Oath of Devotion) Might multi-class into Cleric or Fighter if the situation is appropriate
Background: Acolyte Gods- Odin/Freyja
Race: Aasimar

Personality: Sigrun is an optimist. She always finds the glass half full and looks for the good in any situation. Sometimes her optimism comes across as naivety due to her good nature and easy going attitude. But that all quickly fades away if she is forced to make hard decisions; Life or death, fight or flight. In the heat of battle she is someone you want by your side. She is fiercely loyal to those she calls friends and has been known to take a hit or two. Even outside of battle she will find a way to ease any punishment meant for her or her party.

Trait: I idolize a particular hero of my faith and constantly refer to that person’s deeds and example.

Ideal: The ancient traditions of worship and sacrifice must be preserved and upheld. I trust that my deity will guide my actions. I have faith that if I work hard, things will go well.

Bond:
everything I do is for the common people. I will do anything to protect the temple were I served.

Flaw: I put too much trust in those who wield power within my temple’s hierarchy. My piety sometimes leads me to blindly trust those that profess faith in my god.

Physical description: Sigrun has an imposing physic and presence. You certainly notice when she arrives with her pale blond almost platinum hair and well-kept shining chainmail and eventually, I know she wouldn't start with plate.plate armor. Her hair is long, almost to her waist, and most of the time is kept braided or tucked up in a bun. Having spent many years learning to use weapons she does not seem encumbered by her armor as she moves with a surprising grace. Sigrun is armed with a long sword, a shield bearing Odin’s valknut and several javelins. Her two most prized possessions are her winged helmet, denoting her status as a paladin and her pendant around her neck of a small shield with a valknut with a battle ace and spear crossed behind it.
I drew this myself so don't judge it harshly. It is meant to give you an idea of what is looks like.
 




Backstory:

Born in a small village on the edge of Grimmdale Sigrun remembers little of her time there. Shortly after her third name day her tiny village was raided by bandits and demons from the Black Forest and Wolf-Fang Mountains. Fleeing the destruction her family was taken in by the Temple of Odin in a neighboring city. The priests and paladins of Odin informed of the invasion by the dark forces on the fringe of Grimmdale took action and drove the bandits and demons back into the forest and mountains.

Her family and remaining villagers appreciative of the Temple’s hospitality and willingness to restore their homes offered Sigrun as a token of thanks and living bond between the village and the Temple of Odin. The order was reluctant to take a child but came round to the idea that Sigrun would be a good addition to their ranks.

So Sigrun was left at the temple and raised among the priests and Paladins of Odin for the next twenty years. Educated in basics of reading, writing, math, economics, history, religion and war fare Sigrun soaked up her lessons like sponge. She was anointed into the order at fifteen and set her sights on becoming a paladin of Odin, a Valkyrie, as the female paladins were called. She was assigned as an apprentice to another paladin Gunnar, a veteran of the order and world weary of his many years of travel. He was happy to take Sigrun under his wing and mold her into a Valkyrie.

Gunnar spent the next eight years teaching her to fight with weapons, wear and care for her armor, channel her faith into arcane energy for spells and the tenants of being a paladin. (Honesty, courage, compassion, honor, duty).

Gunnar feeling that he nor the temple could teach Sigrun any more gave her his blessing and sent her off into the world to serve a full paladin of Odin. The world would teach her the rest of the lessons she needed. As a gift she was given her winged helmet and the see hand drawn image above.symbol of Odin to protect her.

Updated my original application for the Red Knight. It isn't finished yet but I wanted to get the concept started.

Why would Odin’s symbol be a shield with two battleaxes? His weapon is a spear, for one, and anyway, the Valknut is typically considered the symbol of Odin. Not that it takes anything away from the backstory.

There's nothing wrong if it's extremely loyal to the source material. In fact, sometimes its better.

And while I love Rumplestiltskin, Frau Holle works way better as a patron in your story.

The spears would just look like sticks or an X on her little pendant, but the shield the axes are with have the valknut on it. I am currently searching for some images (or I'll draw one). I imagine Sigrun would carry and use spears/javelins along with a sword.

I saw you mentioned Demi-gods, but what about gods proper? Are they allowed? Was thinking of Bast. (and yes, I like Bast. My name did not give that away, I hope.)

I have already answered this, and the answer is no, deities are not permitted.

Question, are you making the Red Knight the same character as the Knave of Hearts?

I was considering it actually, fusing the two of them together. I think that's what Ace is supposed to be. But if you aren't cool with that, I can change his name easily enough.
