LIF

Norse legendary mortal

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.
