SKADI

Norse Hunting Goddess

Also known as SKAOI

Giant Winter Goddess of Skiing

She’s known as the Snow-Shoe Goddess after being forced to choose a husband from among the Gods, who would only let her see their shoes.

Unfortunately, the fairest footwear belonged to the ugly NJORD and not the handsome BALDUR she was hoping for. Needless to say, the marriage was a disaster and they never became sole-mates.

Eventually she ran off with ULL, presumably because he’s good at skiing.
