SIGYN

Norse Goddess

Extremely patient long-suffering wife of LOKI

She married a bad’un. The wife of LOKI and the mother of VALI(2) and NARVI, she remained faithful even after he committed adultery, stayed out all night and killed BALDUR.

As punishment for that, he was bound with the entrails of his own son under three flat stones with a snake dripping poison.

Now SIGYN has the thankless task of catching every drop in a bowl before it falls on him. Every so often she has to nip off to empty the bowl — and he gets it right in the face.
