It could be something as simple as maybe Tamsin's parents wanted a different name for their daughter?
But after reading that definition from urban dictionary, it's possible the writers chose that name for a reason. I doubt it's sheer coincidence that the character is named Tamsin when it seems that Rachel's physical appearance embodies it to a T. It's also very interesting that aside from everything else, the meaning of the name is very flattering when it comes to personality as well. "My personality is who I am... my attitude depends on who you are..."

there is one thing that actually bugged me (not considering the urban dictionary post) in the second episode of season 3 where Tamsin hits dyson the last time. Her arms are like not the slightest bit muscly, I was a bit disappointed because when she first enters there is this music and the swagger signaling that someone really powerful is coming and when she hits dyson it has this big impact on him and her character seems really strong and than she has these really skinny arms. I would imagine she had arms like emma swan from once upon a time or even a little less than her would be enough. She (tamsin) doesn't look like someone who fights a lot or is able to stand her ground physically.
I do think that Rachel fits the character though, I think nobody could do it better, she just needs a few more muscles so she actually looks like a big bad valkyrie.
did anyone notice that too or am I being silly?! I thought about the fact that she doesn't need physical combat because of her power but it's not convincing me.
So I was checking out the SyFy Lost Girl character bios and I've been wondering something about Tamsin (well about Valkyries).
Quote"With Hale otherwise incapacitated, Tamsin saunters in to fill the void as Dyson’s partner on the force in the human world. But there’s a catch – she’s Dark Fae. Part of a program to strengthen relations between both Fae clans in the wake of the Garuda’s assault, Tamsin is cool, kickass, and more skeptical than most when it comes to everyone’s favorite Succubus. Tamsin is here to make nice and play by the rules, but her loyalty and trust is not so easily won over. She’s a Valkyrie, a clandestine breed with some serious cred in the Fae world, with an agenda that’s higher than even the Morrigan’s pay grade. And though her powers are as mysterious as her past, there’s no doubt that you’d want Tamsin by your side in a bar-brawl. Who knows, Tamsin might just give Bo a the taste of the Dark that finally tips her over the edge."
Maybe I missed it but I heard of no such thing or even a hint about this during S3. What does it mean? If Valkyries are a clandestine breed of Fae how are they part of the current Fae political system? Anyway if anyone has any thoughts on this it will be appreciated.

Holy crap this line...Yes, please??!!
As for the clandestine thing, I'm not sure. It could just be Syfy's way of wording it. If the Valkyries have been around for as long as I think they have, then it seems like they transcend the whole political system. They determine the outcome of battles, but does this apply to both fae and human as well? Tamsin stated that she only started slumming as a mercenary when she got weak, so this means she wasn't always tied to the Wanderer's services. If that's the case, who do Valkyries answer to, if at all? Bo: "I'm alright, but I'm not perfect." Tamsin: "Yes, you are. To me, you are."
Well, thing is, LG writers have always taken liberties with mythology and supernatural lore. I wouldn't be surprised if they did the same with Valkyries and we see something completely different form Norse mythology, but just enough of it for us to recognise what Valkyries are and do.
Still, I'd love for Tamsin to be the one to get Bo back to true unaligned status and have Bo explore her dark tendencies the way we were teased about at the end of s2. "My personality is who I am... my attitude depends on who you are..."
