Norse Youth Goddess

Also known as IDUNN, IDUNA

Golden Apple Goddess of Spring and Eternal Youth

Also known as Mrs BRAGI. She’s always fending off muggers as she carries the basket containing the Golden Apples of Immortality. When the Gods are feeling a bit past it, one nibble is all it takes to put a spring in their step.

Her abduction by THIASSI the Storm Giant led to all the Gods growing incredibly old until she was rescued by a wrinkly LOKI in the guise of a falcon.
