(Norse Creature)FROST GIANTS

Frost Giant from Norse Mythology
Also known as HRIMTHURS, JOTNAR, RIME GIANTS

A race of not very pleasant primitive creatures who oppose the rule of the Gods and cause no end of hassle and Havoc.

The Rime giants, as they are also known, never really came to terms with Odin and his brothers killing Ymir and drowning their ice-ancestors at the beginning of time, hence the hostility, and it will all come to a head at Ragnarok.

Ymir was the very first of their kind, created from droplets of melting frosty chaos as Niflheim collided with Muspelheim at Ginnungagap void, but Bestla, Geirrod and Thjazi have all been thorns in the side of Asgard's finest, and even old Vafthrudnir wanted a crack at Odin's title of wisest of beings.

Frost giants are also known as Hrimthurs which causes plenty of confusion when the subject of Asgard's crumbling walls pops up. The giant that arrived disguised as a mortal stone mason with Svadilfari in tow wasn't called Hrimthurs but was a Hrimthurs. With that cleared up check out the story of here.
