LIF
Also known as LÍF, LIV

The girl at the end of the world

Her name means simply 'Life'. LIF and her boyfriend LIFTHRASIR are two mortal humans who will escape the cataclysms of RAGNAROK by hiding in the forest of Hodmimir.

They will sleep through the end of the world and emerge to discover that everything they've ever known has been utterly destroyed. Makes a change from the usual Monday mornings, doesn't it?

Then, like a post-apocalyptic Adam and Eve, it's up to them to begin anew and populate the glorious new world.

We are often asked about merchandise. Can we supply the latest Lif graphic novel, book or comic? Not to mention role-playing games (RPG), video games, Lif movies on DVD, BluRay and so on. To purchase such goodies we suggest you search for a dedicated mythology-based online store - or try Amazon, Ebay or other reputable websites. We offer a wide range of our own merchandise in our online GodShop, but we don't currently sell third party items. Yet!

Visitors often email us asking about Lif statues, sculptures or carved figurines of Lif. We regret we cannot assist with identifying such items.
