(Norse Creature)GEIRROD

One of the frost giants who noticed a strange looking bird hanging around outside one of his castle windows.

Flapping around in his falcon disguise, Loki had stopped to perv at a young lad at Geirrods castle, but his beady eyes gave the game away and he was captured and locked in a chest.

Geirrod opened the lid ajar - 'come on Loki, we know it's you mate, so you either stay cooped up forever or promise to bring an unarmed Thor here so we can deal with him'.

Three months he was locked in that chest so when he eventually saw the light of day, he was only too happy to exchange his freedom for the life of his 'friend'.

He returned to Asgard and told the thunder God that they had been invited to a shindig to end all shindigs at Geirrod hall.
'Theres gonna be woman, free running mead and as much boar as you can eat. Oh, and its a friendly get together, so there's absolutely no need to take any weapons.'

Thor wasn't the brightest and the mention of free mead and meat had him sold. Leaving his weapons behind they set off for Geirrods hall, but opted for a stop off at Grid's place on the way. And it's lucky they did.

She was an old friend, an old flame of Odin, mother of Vidar and a generally nice lass, and while Loki slept she went to Thor and told him what was really going on. She slipped Thor a back-up girdle of might, a pair of iron gloves and a magic spear, the sort of things a giantess always puts aside for a rainy day, and the gang set off with the sons of Ivaldi now in their ranks.

They were almost done for by huge waves and a rising tide sent by Geirrods daughter Gjalp in a most disgusting manner as they crossed a river. But a well pitched boulder from Thor had her fleeing for her life.

Having arrived at Geirrods place, Thor took a seat but couldn't help but notice that he was getting closer to the ceiling. It was Gjalp again, this time with her sister Greip, and they were trying to crush our hungry thunder god against the roof. Unfortunately for them Thor is the master of push and shove, a fact they found out the hard way as he crushed their backs.

Geirrod himself was no more hospitable. A handshake is generally regarded as the proper etiquette but Geirrod adopted a more unorthodox approach by hurling a red hot spear. Thor had Grid to thank as the iron gloves were called into action and he caught it and sent it back with interest, piercing the stone pillar the sissy giant was hiding behind and pinning him to the wall.

The remaining castle staff were given a good shafting in no uncertain terms before Thor and co made a speedy escape as the castle crumbled to ruins.
