(Norse Creature)HRIMTHURS

Primordial race of giants also known as Rime or Frost giants. The old school originals were all wiped out when Odin, Vili and Ve flooded the earth with Ymir's blood and only Bergelmir escaped to become ancestor to the new breed of Rime giants.

Strangely enough one of the most famous Hrimthurs is the one with no name who arrived at Asgard disguised as a mortal stone mason.

'You're wall looks a little rickety', he said to the Gods, 'I could fix it within six months for the modest sum of the sun and moon. Oh and throw in that sexy little minx Goddess Freyja'.

The Gods wren't sure about accepting such an offer, but before they could decline, the ever mischievous Loki had agreed, spat on his hand and shook on the deal.

'Don't worry', Loki said. 'Look at the size of the walls and the state they're in. There's no way he'll be finished in six months!'

But litttle did they know the giant had an enormous stallion called Svadilfari who could pull boulders like nobody's business. It was squeeky bum time for the gods, especially Freyja, as it was beginning to look more and more likely that the shifty giant would complete the job by deadline day and Loki was pressed to ensure the giants failure under threat of eternal torture. In the long run Loki was fated to be tortured for all time anyway but he was in no rush.

Taking the form of a beautiful white mare Loki pranced and danced like a little tease to get Svadilfari's undivided attention then dashed off into the forest. Sure enough the horny stallion gave chase and left the giant to haul the boulders himself. The Hrimthurs was furious, he knew he couldn't finish the wall by deadline day and he got a bit lairy, threatening to destroy Asgard, take Freyja by force and do unspeakable things to her. Thor had been away on Giant bashing business but luckily arrived home just in time to bash one more.

Some months passed before Loki sheepishly emerged from the forest, leading an eight legged horse called Sleipnir, the result of a fleeting moment of passion between a sneaky trickster god and a giant's enormous stallion.
