HYRROKKIN – “Fire-Smoked”
An incredibly strong giantress of Jotunheim – Hyrrokkin was called upon to move Baldr’s ship “Hringhorni,” carrying his corpse when the Gods were unable to free it; the vessel stuck in the sand.
Hyrrokkin rode in on her wolf drawn chariot with reins of poisonous snakes – moving the vessel with such force it took a single blow. Strive for this power.
