BURI

Norse Creator God

Also known as Búri

The very first Norse God

He appeared in the icy wastes of Niflheim. He’s the son of the giant frosty cow Auðumla, who apparently uncovered him by licking through the ice.

His name means ‘The Producer’ and we’re not talking TV or film here. Being the first God, he didn’t waste any time in creating more, starting with Bor. After that came Odin and the beginnings of Norse Mythology.
