Fenrir

A great and terrible monster in the form of a wolf, Fenrir is the eldest child of Loki and the Angrboda, the Giantess. A prophecy warned the Aesir that the wolf and his family would one day bring about the destruction of the world. Fenrir was caged, and only Tyr, the boldest of the Gods, dared to feed and take care of the wolf.

Fenrir was bound with Gleipnir, a magic ribbon that was incredibly strong, and while bound had a series of diplomatic exchanges with the Gods, and eventually bit off the hand of Tyr. Fenrir was then kept a mile below the surface of the Earth with a sword in his mouth.

It is said on the day of Ragnarok, the last battle, that Fenrir will break his chains and join the Giants in their battle against the Gods. He will seek out and devour Odin, and then, in turn, be killed by Odin’s son, Vidar.

Hel

Ruler of the Germanic Netherworld, Hel was not a goddess to be trifled with; she was one mean ol’ lady. To be fair, I’d be angry too if Odin banished me to the smelly old netherworld (dubbed Helheim for its ruler). She was the daughter of the trickster god, Loki, and the frost giantess Angrboda. Those frost giants are always trouble, and don’t even get me started on Loki. 

Hel had the face and body of a living woman, but her thighs and legs were those of a decomposing corpse. Her brothers were Fenrir and Jormungandr, so it’s easy to see that horrifying evil ran in the family. Hel’s gloomy realm stood in stark contrast to Odin’s Valhalla in terms of afterlife, and indeed the Christians would later take Hel’s name for their realm of eternal damnation. 

Hel’s throne was known as the “Sick Bed,” as those who died from sickness and old age were the subjects of Hel. In Helheim itself, Hel held more power even than Odin, who had banished her there, and the Aesir appeal to her for aid in several stories from the Eddas. When you compare the endless feasting and merriment of Valhalla with the sickly eternity of Helheim, it’s no wonder being a warrior and dying in battle was so sought after by the Germanic tribes.

Until recently I’ve realized how beautiful life is. I have learned to love and enjoy every step I take and cherish every breath I take in and release.
