Baldr (bah-l-der) - the god of innocence. He is the most beautiful of all the gods and was given the gift of invincibility by his mother Frigg. The one weakness, mistletoe, which Loki found out about and manipulated Baldr’s twin brother, Hodr, into killing Baldr, ultimately setting the gears in motion for Ragnarok.

Folkvangr (folk-van-ger) - After the Aesir - Vanir war, Odin and Freya agreed to share all warriors who fall during battle. Odin will take half to Valhalla while Freya take the other half to her domain. Folkvangr is often depicted as a meadow.

Jörmungand (yo-mun-gan) - the giant serpent that circles the Earth; Loki’s son; that falls from the sky during Ragnarok and kills Thor.

Loki (lo-key) - the trickster god. He is half Giant, half Aesir. Usually he cause more trouble than good, though he has helped Thor in several adventures.

Mjölnir (m-ole-neer) - Thor’s hammer. Was constructed by dwarfs and was originally for Loki, but Loki’s deception backfired and it ended up choosing Thor as it’s wielder.

Sif (sehf) - Thor’s wife and goddess of the harvest and Earth. Her most prominent trait her golden hair, the colour of crops. It was taken from her by Loki, who gave it to the Giants. Thor then forced the trickster to make a golden wig for Sif.
