Hel: North Germanic ruler of the Underworld of the same name
(her abode was later to be incorporated into Christianity)

The slab was cold under her.
Her legs were half decomposed,
but she was getting stronger by the day.

Her throne is a sick bed.
Her subjects those who died
from sickness and old age.

But she is getting stronger.
Soon her powers would be stronger
than Odin's, who banished her here.

The only living company that she has
are her brothers Fenrir the wolf
and Jormungand the serpent .

But soon Odin, soon...
Your son Balder will come
and I will return him not!
