GULVEIGAlso known as GULLVEIG, HEID
Giant sorceress who rules a black forest on the edge of the world.She is obsessed by gold. She lusts after it, hoards it and talks of nothing but gold gold gold gold...
Many Gods have found this extremely irritating and many have tried to burn her down and attack her with sharp weapons just to shut her up. But they haven't a hope in hell against her magic powers. At one point the bickering got so nasty that it started the first War of the Gods.
