Norse Demoness

Also known as Hyrokkin

Giant Ogress of Winter Storms who rides a wolf

She was chosen to launch Balder’s funeral boat. It was the longest and largest of longboats almost ever. And no-one else could shift it.

She arrived late, snarled at all, and single-handedly shoved the boat off to sea with such violence that sparks flew. The boat zoomed off at a furious and undignified pace.

Thor was furious with her behavior, but for once drew back from a confrontation.
