Assassin’s Creed Valhalla Male or Female Eivor? | Who you should choose

Best Answer: Choosing between male or female Eivor in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla will see the character portrayed by either Magnus Bruun or Cecilie Stenspil, while characters will use different gender pronouns when referring to them.


Choosing between the Assassin’s Creed Valhalla male or female Eivor is one of the first decisions it thrust upon the player. There were some differences in Odyssey, mainly in that they were separate people with different roles in the story. So should you choose male or female Eivor in ACV?

The similarities between male or female Eivor in ACV mean that it’s less of a major choice as it was in the previous Assassin’s Creed game, though there are still some key differences.

What happens if you choose male Eivor?

If you choose male Eivor over female Eivor in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, the following will happen:

  • Other characters will refer to you using male pronouns.
  • Voice acting will be performed by Magnus Bruun.
  • Male Eivor will still share the same romance options as female Eivor.

Other characters treat both Eivors the same as well and hardly refer to their gender. And, unlike Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, the other Eivor does not appear in the story in any way. It’s not like the female Eivor is male Eivor’s sister and vice versa.

What happens if you choose female Eivor?

If you choose female Eivor over male Eivor in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, you will experience the following:

  • Other characters will refer to you using female pronouns.
  • Voice acting will be performing by Cecilie Stenspil.
  • Female Eivor shares the same romance options as male Eivor.

Players can even switch genders at any time, which allows them to play as the other gender through a menu option. There is even a third option that picks the “stronger memory stream” that is supposed to go between both male and female Eivor. This option may be a little buggy or switches very rarely because it doesn’t seem to swap all that often so it may just be best to manually switch them out. The Asgard missions tend to favor male Eivor in these scenarios for some reason.
