Inspired by Marisa's versions the Norse gods Loki and Thor , I made some myself


* FREYA *
(or Freyja; ”Lady”)

She was the sister of Frey , and goddess of love, marriage, fertility, war, beauty, prophecies , attraction and queen of the Valkyries.

Freya was thought to be the most desirable of all goddesses, and was owner of the attractive piece of jewellery Brosingamen (Brísingamen), which she bought from four dwarfs for the price of a night with her.
Besides the necklace, she owned a cloak of hawk/eagle feathers, which gave her the ability to change into any bird. She lends this garment to Loki in Trymskvida (Þrymskviða)
She was the driver of a wagon drawn by a pair of cats as big as lions, her palace was in Folkvang (Fólkvangr).

As a battle-goddess, Freya rode a boar called Hildisvín the Battle-Swine.
Being a strong-willed warrior maiden, she joined and then led the Valkyries - so that she could have first pick of the slain battlefield warriors. Most of the slain went to Odin's Valhalla, but the good-looking heroes went straight to her palace for rest and recuperation.

Freya's husband was Od (Odr). He often went away on long journeys, and for this reason Freya cried tears of red gold.

Freya and Od had two beautiful daughters; Hnoss ( 'jewel or 'gem'') and Gersemi ('riches' or 'treasure')

Freya means ”lady”/”female ruler”, in Old Norse, and led to the Scandinavian word '”fru” and German ”Frau” meaning ”mrs”, ”woman” and/or ”married woman”.

Wow, great job! My favorite diety of the Norse pantheon. (Even named my computer after her!) If you could do Freya in her armor, helm, and cloak, I'd be ever so grateful.
