(Norse Creature) SKRYMIR

Also known as UTGARDR-LOKI

Giant. Really Giant. Vast in fact.

Whilst travelling to Utgarda, Thor, Loki, Thialfi and Roskva stopped off at a deserted hall - so huge it could've housed several of Asgard's halls side by side. They ate, they snoozed and when they woke they discovered that their digs for the night had actually been the thumb of one of Skrymir's gloves.

Introductions out of the way, they pooled their food rations which Skrymir fastened up and carried on his back. At the end of the day when it was time to eat Thor couldn't open the bag for love nor money and the fact Skrymir's snoring was shaking the whole forest pushed the god of thunder over the edge. He shiftied over to the snoozing Skrymir and hit him on the head with his hammer.

Skrymir stirred : 'Did a leaf just fall on my head?'

Thor couldn't quite believe his eyes and waited for the giant to doze off again so he could get an action replay .. twice as hard.

Skrymir opened one eye : 'What is it now? Did some Acorn just fall on my head?'

Thor was a little perplexed by this point. Waiting for the giant to fall asleep again, he crept over a third time and struck him in the temple with all of his might.

Skrymir woke up and stroked his cheek : 'There must be a bird in the tree above me. I imagined, while i was sleeping, that some dirt fell from the twigs onto my head.'

Thor was absolutely baffled. As it turns out, old Skrymir was Utgarda-Loki in elaborate illusion mode, for reasons my poor brain can't even begin to fathom.

Anyway, they went their seperate ways and the crew eventually arrived at Utgard where they encountered even stranger goings-on.
