Sýnin was a female [1] raven that accompanied the Viking Eivor during the Viking expansion in the 9th century.[2]

Behind the scenes

Sýnin first appeared in Assassin's Creed: Valhalla's reveal livestream, flying over Eivor's shoulder.[3] Her name was first revealed in an interview with USGamer and she is set to appear in-game as a companion and extension of the Eagle Vision mechanic introduced in Assassin's Creed: Origins.[2]


Sýnin is the definitive form of the Old Norse word sýn, meaning 'sight, vision'.

The name is intended to mean 'insight' and is pronounced "Sue-nin" (/'suːnɪn/).[4]
