[_ 0127_5_2 _]Hel was one of the children of the god Loki and the giantess Ancrboda. Her brothers are Fenris, the Great Wolf, and Jormundgandr, the world snake.  In the country of Niflheim, it commands below the ancient roots of the world tree Yggdrasil, over a hall called sleet in the Kingdom of Helheim, far north of Ginnungagap. It's the land of the dead. Those who do not die in battle go to this hall.[_ 0127_5_3 _]

[_ 0127_5_2 _]Hel guards the dead and she has a shining eye that sees the whole truth. She cannot be lied to.  Hell seems to be a pretty girl, half-white and half-snow-covered black, usually with a scowl on her face. Because her appearance so disturbed the other gods, she was expelled from Asgard.  Although surrounded by the spirits of the dead, Hel is lonely and sad. She cries on her bed called Disease.[_ 0127_5_3 _]

[_ 0127_5_2 _] Their hall is called sleet; their plate, hunger; hunger is their knife; loafers, their servant; Sloven, their maid; Pit of tripping, their threshold through which one enters; disease, their bed; shiny bale, their bed hangings. She is half blue-black and half flesh-colored (by this she is easy to recognize) and very degrading and wild.[_ 0127_5_3 _]

[_ 0127_5_2 _] During Ragnarok, she opens the gates to her kingdom far to all dead souls to ride into battle with her father Loki on a ship made of dead nails to destroy and revive the world.[_ 0127_5_3 _]
