Hel - In Norse Mythology, Hel was the Daughter of Loki and goddess of the underworld (keeper of the dead), Niflheim. She was thrown into Niflheim by Odin, who decreed that she must rule over men who died of sickness or old age. She was frightening to look at. In some accounts she reclines on a bed called Disease and half of her body is rotting and decayed. In other accounts half of her face is flesh and half is blank. In other accounts half of her face is flesh and half is blue. In the Prose Edda book Gylfaginning, her appearance is described as half-black/decayed and half-flesh colored, and as further having a gloomy, down-cast appearance. The Scandinavian word Hel originally simply meant the place where the dead go, but this became personified into the goddess Hel. The English word, Hell, naturally derives from the Scandinavian. She had playing key role in the attempted resurrection of the god Balder.
Fenrir (Fenris) - Norse Mythology – Fenrir is a monstrous wolf. Fenrir is the father of the wolves Sköll and Hati Hróðvitnisson, is a son of Loki, and is foretold to kill the god Odin during the events of Ragnarök, but will in turn be killed by Odin's son Vídar. In the Prose Edda, additional information is given about Fenrir, including that, due to the gods' knowledge of prophecies foretelling great trouble from Fenrir and his rapid growth, the gods bound him, and as a result Fenrir bit off the right hand of the god Týr.
(Jörmungandr, Midgard Serpent or World Serpent) - Norse Mythology – Jormungand is a sea serpent, and the middle child of the giantess Angrboða and the god Loki. According to the Prose Edda, Odin took Loki's three children, Fenrir, Hel and Jormungand, and tossed Jormungand into the great ocean that encircles Midgard. The serpent grew so large that he was able to surround the Earth and grasp his own tail. When he lets go, the world will end. As a result, he received the name of the Midgard Serpent or World Serpent. Jormungand's arch-enemy is the god Thor.
