Promotional Art featuring Sýnin with Eivor

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

Behind the scenes

Sýnin first appeared in Assassin's Creed: Valhalla's reveal livestream, flying over Eivor's shoulder.[2] Its name was first revealed in an interview with USGamer and is set to appear in-game as a companiion and extension of the Eagle Vision mechanic introduced in Assassin's Creed: Origins.[1]


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

The name is intended by the developers to mean "insight" and be pronounced "Sue-nin" (/'suːnɪn/)[3]. Despite this, the name would be more closely pronounced as "Sye-neen" (/'sy.nin/) in Old Norse.
