Kriss de Valnor is the main recurring villainess in the Thorgal comics. You always think she is dead, but she keeps coming back for more evil schemes. Often, the heroes are forced to cooperate with her, should it be because she kidnapped family, or they share the same goal, but she always plays it for herself. She appears in many albums, and since 2010 has her own spin-off series.
"now, come across, sweeties, taste the water of this beautiful river:::"
always mocking the hero
"laugh all you want, witch, but I will not leave without my wife"
"all right, she can go with us...so that i will have the pleasure of hearing her cry out of terror...and even see her die."
"this time, I will strangle you with my bare hands"
taking a hostage
the heroine needs her to stay alive...
"it is my gold. I earned it...my gold..."
another evil laugh "ah ah ah. I do not give a damn about those bums, Thorgal"
"...because he completely lost his memory, our graceous hero : he does everything I want him to do. He does not even remember that you simply exist "
this scene happens in an alternate reality, and features one of the may death of Kriss. She comes back later in the same album, but the story takes another path, where she lives.
"i want to see this pork balancing at the end of a rope before an hour"
tried it with the heroine
The latest death of Kriss - sacrificing herself to save the others. But we do not see her dying, once again, so she is likeable to come back
