HEIDRUN

Norse fabulous creature

The magical goat of Valhalla

There really aren’t enough magical goats in the world. Take a moment to praise the goaty goodness of Heidrun.

She eats from Yggdrasil, the tree that supports the world, so it’s important that her diet is rigorously controlled. Do her nibbles cause earthquakes?

As if that isn’t enough, this she-goat is entrusted to brew all the mead for the dead warriors rejoicing in Valhalla, the Holiday Inn for Heroes.

Wait. A goat that brews mead? With all the rowdiness that goes on there they probably can’t get the staff.
