THJAZI

Also known as PJAZI, THIAZI , THIASSI
God of : n/a - Hall : n/a - Mount : n/a

When Olvaldi died his enormous mountain of gold was split by Thjazi and his brothers Gangir and Idi who took a mouthful each until it was all used up and evenly measured.

Having inherited such a large ammount Thjazi had the financial clout to buy everything he could ever want but soon turned his attention to getting something he couldn't (or shouldn't) have.

As we all know, fires won't burn if they're covered with frost, which pissed Loki off to no end! He was on a trek with Hoenir and Odin and having stumbled upon a lovely big Oxen they were struggling to light a fire to cook it over.

Thiajzi in the form of a dirty great eagle crowed that he would only allow the fire to burn if he could dine with the Gods. Loki was already agitated but seeing the glutonous bird chomp his way through an entire beast was more than he could take. He brought his staff crashing down on Thiajzi which stuck to him like a magnet and as the bird took flight so did Loki.

He screamed like a sissy and the giant agreed to release him if he brought Idunn and her magic apples to him. Given Loki's nature he agreed.

Returning to Asgard, he told Idunn he had found some wonderful apples that she should check out, and that she should bring her own apples with her to compare them. I can't believe she fell for it, but she did! Thjazi then appeared in his eagle form, grabbed the unsuspecting Goddess and carried her back to Þrymheimr.

Deprived of Idunn's apples, the Gods began to age rapidly and as she was last seen leaving Asgard with Loki they told him to get her back or else!

Loki took the form of a falcon, then flew to Jotunheim. Finding Idunn alone he transformed her into a nut, picked her up and made for Asgard. He was rumbled on the way out by the furious Thiajzi who changed back into his eagle form and gave chace.

Spotting the Loki hawk incoming with the Eagle hot on his tail, the Gods lit a huge bonfire and as Thjazi flew overhead his wings were burnt right off. Once grounded they gave him a good kicking and that was the end of that. His daughter Skadi wasn't best pleased though.
