NORNS

The three weird sisters who spin the threads of destiny at their hall under Yggdrasil.

They're Urdr who looks after the past, Verdandi who is the present and Skuld, who also moonlights as a Valkyrie, looks after the future. They're responsible for the fates of all living things including the Gods, and it ain't always good.

Everyone who is born is assigned a Norn to decide their fate but these three only looked after the manevolent side of things. Lost a leg, a dog, a fortune at the roulette wheel? Chances are these three were in some way involved. But they're not all worts and tragedy. They would mix water from the well of fate with muck to smear on the worlds tree to prevent the branches from rotting .. which was nice of them.

And on the plus side, you might be assigned a good Norn who brings you nothing but luck, happiness and riches, like the Maidens of Mogprasir, but don't hold your breath.

Meet the family ...
Parents : coming soon ...
