Brun is the leader of the Valkyran Raiders.
Tall and broad-shouldered.
Brun is the most warlike of the Valkyrans, which is granted given she is their leader. She is a strong believer of the Valkyran ways and loathes Star Command and the Galactic Alliance. She believes that they moved in on Valkyran territory and has made it her purpose to fight against them by crossing into the Alliance's borders and attacking cargo ships.
Despite appreciating a good battle, she knows when her forces are outnumbered and a retreat is in order. Through this, and through entering battle personally, she shows that she does not consider herself above her fellow Valkyrans and is not willing to pointlessly throw lives away. It also shows that she is neither afraid of getting her hands dirty nor afraid of defeat. However, her speeches and open derisiveness of "civilized" products such as Jo-Adian processed cheese spread, which she called "noxious swill", also indicate how she is set in her ways and not very receptive to change and new ideas.
- "Long before your so-called Galactic Alliance, Valkyrans ruled these space ways."
- "No... in the black pitch of space, the Valkyrans live by one rule: the strong prey on the weak. It has always been so. This will not change."
- "Pity. To be denied the brutal conquest of a raid diminishes the value of our fight. Still, it beats working."
- "Space Rangers! Prepare to experience a savage and merciless defeat at the hands of the Valkyran Raiders!"
- Brun's name originates from Brúnn, a male name that means "brown" or "shining" in Old Norse.
- Brun is possibly named after Brynhildr, one of Odin's Valkyries and the main character of the Völsunga Saga and Der Ring des Nibelungen. Brynhildr is also said to be inspired by Brunhilda, a Visigoth princess who lived during the second half of the 6th century and became notorious for her cruelty and avarice. Whether either of these apply to Brun herself are unknown.
