Sýnin was a female [1][2] raven that accompanied the Viking shieldmaiden Eivor Varinsdottir during the Viking invasion of England in the 9th century.[3]


While Sýnin had the appearance of a standard raven, Layla Hassan, via her Animus HR-8.5 generated simulation of Eivor's memories, could change the plumage and even species of Sýnin within the simulation.

Behind the scenes

Sýnin first appeared in Assassin's Creed: Valhalla's reveal livestream, flying over Eivor's shoulder.[4] 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.[3]


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/).[5]
