Hyrrokkin – (of fire). A Norse female giant who is also a sorceress. The Ases send for Hyrrokkin by the time of Balder’s death. The Ases want to ceremonially cremate Balder onboard his ship Ringhorne, but the ship will not move one inch. Hyrrokkin arrives on the back of a wolf with a viper as her rein. With a force that makes the rollers under the ship catch fire and the Earth tremble, she pulls Ringhorne off the shore and into the water.
