Origin

The Airmaidens were Valkyrie's all girl air squadron. They were trained to be perfect Nazis by Herr Oberst, a Nazi colonel. After training, they blasted her way through the Allied pilots until they ran into Airboy.

When Valkyrie captured Airboy, three members of the squadron hid him in an old hangar but were found out by Oberst. He ordered them to be whipped and Airboy killed. Although she was all right with seeing the young boy sent to his death, the prospect of seeing her subordinates whipped appalled Valkyrie. She tried to persuade Oberst to show mercy, but the Nazi commander didn't budge. Suddenly realizing that all Nazis were cruel and evil, Valkyrie killed Oberst and then used Airboy's own plane, Birdie, to rescue him and her three comrades.

From that point on, the Airmaidens and Valkyrie joined the Allies and fought on their side for the remainder of the war. They aided Airboy every once in a while including helping to fight villains such as Misery.
