Norse fabulous creature

Also known as JOTNAR, ICE-GIANTS

A race of monstrous creatures who started out as icicles and became a dominant Norse force.

The FROST-GIANTS are primitive beings who oppose the rule of the Gods and generally create havoc and hassle. This means war!

The first of them was YMIR, who was formed in the primeval icy chaos of NIFLHEIM. Their number also includes JOTUNHEIM, AUDUMBLA, BESTLA and GEIRROD, THIASSI and VAFTHRUDNIR.
