In Norse mythology, Göndul (Old Norse "wand-wielder") is a valkyrie. Göndul is attested in Heimskringla, Sörla þáttr, and a 14th-century Norwegian charm. In addition, Göndul appears within the valkyrie list in the Poetic Edda poem Völuspá, in both of the two Nafnaþulur lists found in the Prose Edda, and among the valkyries listed in Darraðarljóð.
- In legend, Gondul was considered one of the most beautiful of the Valkyries. Known of her silver tongue, sharp wit and her figure so stunning it would literally drive men insane. Thus, Odin forbid her from entering Midgard after a time, for insanity is not a welcome trait in Valhalla. Said by Mimir.
- Unlike other Valkyries, Gondul can be encountered without requiring Mimir's help, thus should you managed to brave the Trials of Muspelheim early on and fight her, Kratos and Atreus will have a different dialogue with them not knowing who she is.
- Coincidentally, Gondul is the only one of the ten Valkyries (including Freya) who does not have an r in her name.
