On Earth there's very little known about Dani Moonstar, unless you're with Xavier's or potentially SHIELD.


Dani Moonstar is a newly minted SHIELD agent and an alumni of the Xavier's Institute. For Asgardian's she is also known to be a Valkyrie.


Danielle Moonstar lived in Boulder, Colorado, upon a reservation that held much of the Cheyenne Nation. It was during her teenage years that Danielle's life would take a turn for the worse. Her parents disappeared during a camping trip and never returned, and while everyone thought they were lost, Dani wasn't one to believe them. Not without proof. Still, as a young girl, she wasn't allowed to be left to her own devices and a friend of the family took her in. It was during this stressful time that Dani's mutant powers awoke. And it would be that awakening that sent her away to her grandfather, Black Eagle.

While he didn't exactly know how to handle a grief stricken mutant, he did know how to handle a grief stricken granddaughter and slowly, he began to help her.

Even with her grandfather's help, Dani still fought for control over her powers. There were many nights that she'd pull her grandfather's greatest fear from his mind completely unknowingly. And it was also during this time that the nightmares about her parents began to plague her. Weeks and months passed, sometimes good, sometimes bad, but mostly the bad outweighed the good. It was because of this that Black Eagle finally called upon a friend at Xavier' Academy for Gift Students. While Dani fought /bitterly/ to the end about going to this special school /off/ of the res, eventually she did go. Seeing (at least some part) of the wisdom her Grandfather spoke of. Even knowing this was for the best, it wasn't without tears on both of their ends, when Dani finally agreed to leave.

While being away from her family and friends was hard, and she had a chip on her shoulder the size of Boulder, Colorado, eventually Dani did adapt. At the school she began to finally start to control her powers and even begin to pull specific fears and desires from people's minds. She also made friends there, as well, even if sometimes she was a little too blunt and aggressive at times. It was during her time at Xavier's that she really began to get hints that something was after her. A demon bear was hunting her. This demonic entity had taken her parents away from her and was now looking to finish her off. And while she didn't know what /exactly/ was after her, the nightmares about her parents and a bear kept coming to her over and over again, each night. It got so bad, that Dani began to ignore sleep and practice fighting, as she waited for this attack she felt sure was coming. And come, eventually it did.

It was during a night that Dani couldn't sleep. She felt like something was about to happen and Dani, being Dani, decided to face it head on instead of cowering beneath her blankets. Taking bow and arrow, and applying paint to her face, Dani stepped outside of Xavier's comfortable mansion and went into the woods. There she shouted a challenge to the air. That challenge was answered, though with results neither Demon Bear or Dani would have anticipated. The bear, reached out from its world and into her world and within the rendering of planes, the unexpected happened. Instead of Dani being attacked by the bear, she was thrown through the various realms and when she awoke she found herself in a far away land, by the name of Asgard.

Here is where Danielle would find a winged horse, under attack. Here she would save that horse and become its rider and here she would be named Valkyrie.

While normally the Valkyrie of Asgard stay within Asgard, because of the unusual circumstances that found Danielle within this realm, it was deemed she could return back to Midgard (Earth) with both her standing as a Valkyrie, as well as her steed which she named Brightwind.

When she returned to her regular life she came back to the Xavier's Institute, offering to teach. Teaching, however, wasn't for her. Eventually Dani struck decided to get into something more and stretched her wings out for SHIELD. And so now, as a new agent, we find the woman juggling her responsibilities with SHIELD and the Institute and striving for a balance in her life.

Character Details

Dani is many things, friend, daughter, granddaughter and woman. She's strong, loyal, friendly. She can be sarcastic, broody and serious. She's the type of person that will be there no matter what. If she gives you a promise that promise will be kept; even if it kills her. On the flip side, if someone breaks a promise to her that could ultimately be a deal breaker for her. Honor is big in Dani's world and not something she treats lightly. She feels a responsibility for people she sees as her friends, her family, or those that are under her guardianship, or leadership. She will /never/ leave anyone behind and she'll never send someone on a mission she'd not do herself. Along with all these traits is a streak of anger that can flare brightly when Dani is riled-up; something that will make her impulsive, stupid at times, but fierce. And last, but not least, never-ever-ever tell Dani not to do something. That will make her do an about face and go against the grain; it's just part of who she is.
