Transcript of Norse Mythology

We will be visiting the different aspects of Norse mythology such as the hierarchy, structure, and relationships between the gods. Norse Mythology Loki was the trickster god and the god of fire. He was also a shapeshifter and Odin's blood-brother. He was cunning and resourceful. But originally he was just mischievious, not evil. His motives then were to have fun and have a good laugh at others expense. Eventually, his mischeif caused the death of Baldur, who was the most loved god. Eventually he was punished for it, with snake venom dripping on his head. Loki's tactics then had been trickery and pranks. During Ragnarok he escaped and lead the war against the gods. Loki became evil and opposed the Aesir, the gods of good. His motives then were revenge. His tactics were leading a war against the gods. The Trickster Frigg was the goddess of love. She was Odins wife. She was also the queen of Asguard. She is the typical motherly wife figure found in mythology. She may also be Freya, though there is debate on that. Her motives would be love and keeping the piece for her loved ones. The Mother One day the gods Odin, Hoenir, and Lothur walked along the beeach, they saw some driftwood. One was ask and the other piece was elm. So Odin breathed life into them. Then Hoenir gave them senses. Lastly Lothur gave the drifwood warmth, then Ask(ash) and Embla(elm) were created. Interactions Between Gods and Humans Interactions Between Gods The gods and goddesses of Norse mytholgy are very proud of themselves, which they should be because they were very courageous and they thought of the goddesses as very beautiful and they thought of the gods as very strong and smart. The gods and goddesses of Norse had a lot to do with nature, almost every god has an animal involved with them. The morallessons in this mythology were brave and honest.

They include these major figures, such as Odin, Frigg, Thor, Balder and Try.
-The Vanir is a second clan of gods. The god Njord and his children, Freyr and Freyja, are the most prominent Vanir gods who joined the Aesir as hostages after a war between Aesir and Vanir. The Vanir appear to have mainly been connected with cultivation and fertility, the Aesir with power and war. The Father Odin is a major god in Norse mythology and the ruler of Asgard. He is associated with war, battle, victory, and death but also wisdom, magic, poetry, and prophecy. Ymir was a frost giant that was created from the melting ice of Niflheim when it cam in contact with the warm of of Muspell. Giants are enormous creatures that are usually the enemies of gods and humans. They existed long before the gods and humans. Sif is Thor's wife, she has long golden hair and she is the goddess of fertility. Once Loki cut it off as a prank but Thor made him replace it with real gold spun as fine as her hair. Thor is the Norse god of thunder. He is usually portrayed as a large strong man with a red beard and eyes of lightning. Freya is the most beautiful of all the goddesses. She loves spring, music and flowers. She also loves elves. When she mourned for her lost husband, Od, her tears changed into gold. Hel is the ruler of Helheim, the place of death. She is usually described as an ugly hag, half dead, and half alive. Her torso and head is like a woman but she has legs of a corpse.
