(Norse Deity)SOL

Also known as SUNNA
In a nutshell ...
God of : The Sun
Attributes :
Hall :
Mount :

The daughter of Mundilfari and Glaur who rode across the daytime sky in her chariot pulled by Arvak and Alsvid.

Sol was the sun and although she provides the worlds heat, the light is generated by the manes of the horses who pull her chariot.

To prevent any serious combustion issues, Svalin stands between Sol and the earth, kind of like a giant sun screen - I don't even want to think about what would happen if he ever took a day off due to illness!

Sol is constantly chased by Skoll who isn't an admirer, and when there is an eclipse he has almost caught her. "Giddy-up gee gees! Wooh, that was too close!"

He will eventually catch her eventually though, and it will signal the beginning of the end. See Ragnarok.

Meet the family ...
Parents : Mundilfari and Glaur
