Having emigrated to England along with other Vikings, Valdis at some point entered a relationship with Oswald, the heir to the throne of East Anglia. However, Oswald was believed to have been slain by Rued, a Viking opposed to Oswald's rule. Following this, Valdis joined and helped recruit villagers in Elmenham to a raiding party led by Eivor against Rued's fort of Burgh Castle to avenge Oswald. Within the base, they discovered that Oswald instead was imprisoned instead of slain, and managed to free the man.
After recovering from the raid on Burgh Castle, Valdis and Oswald were wed in Elmenham. During the reception, the newlyweds swore loyalty to Eivor and their Raven Clan. Soon after being wed, Valdis became pregnant with Oswald's child.
