Sif is a female shield maiden and warrior in the magical kingdom of Asgard. Her skill in battle is second only to Brunhilde the Valkyrie among Asgardian females. She has a great dislike of Amora the Enchantress for reasons that remain unknown.
Sif is a young Asgardian woman who was born in the magical dimension of Asgard. There, she grew up alongside Loki, Thor, Brunhilde, and Amora the Enchantress. It is presumed that she eventually began to train to become a shield-maiden, and became an incredible lady warrior.
She was seen leading the Valkyries alongside Brunhilde against a trio of Frost Giants who had besieged both Giant-Man and an unconcious Wasp. She later showed that she was a remarkable swordswoman and equestrian, and commented on both Giant-Man's status as a giant and man, as well as her hated rival Enchantress. Sif assisted in several battles during Loki's war, but was defeated. She was later present when Odin took his place on the throne, and cheered for the Avengers alongside her fellow Asgardians.
Other Worthy's Arrival
Sif overheard how Thor missed Jane Foster, a mortal from Midgard. She interruped them remarking Thor that he should return to Midgard. Thor went away after Odin arrived and reported that Surtur was missing from Muspelheim and the Warriors Three reported that something was troubling Heimdall and Thor checked it out.
She was present when Odin summoned Beta Ray Bill who was holding Mjolnir. She attacked without hesitation the Korbonite, but was easily defeated. He was then taken hold by Odin and summoned Thor. Bill explained his backstory and Sif offered to help him to save his people from the Fire Demons and offered her sword afer Odin rejected the proposal of Thor giving Mjolnir to him and suggested that they should take him to Eitri. Sif watched through how Thor convinced Eitri to make a hammer for Bill.
After Bill acquired Stormbreaker, they went to the Skuttlebutt, which was attacked by the Fire Demons. She went into the ship and activated the system of the Skuttlebutt, she ordered the ship to go after the Enchantress who was commanding the Fire Demon army, but was stopped by the ambush of the Fire Demons. She went to the place of the sleeping pods where the Korbonites rested and fended off the Fire Demons, until they vanished after Thor and Bill defeated the Enchantress. After they arrived at the Skuttlebutt, she offered to Bill to protect the Korbonites, but Bill refused since he thought her duties lied elsewhere. She bade farewell to Bill and left with Thor apologizing to him for earlier.
Sif is a young woman who has thick black hair that reaches her mid-back, who is short in stature compared to some other Asgardian women. She wears red and silver Norse themed armor and carries both a sword and shield into battle. Her eyes are gold in color. .
Sif appears to be an honorable warrior who is quite brave and ready to charge into battle no matter what the consequences. She, like other Asgardians, underestimates the battle prowess, intelligence, and worth of the mortals from Midgard. This seems to have cleared up thanks to the Avengers.
