Ymir the Frost Giant is the primary god of the people of Asgard and Vanaheim. He is the father of Atali and the frost giants. According to legend, Ymir dwells in the far northern mountains of Nordheim, and warriors who die in battle are sent to his hall of Valhalla. He may make his presence known by a deafening crack of thunder as the entire night sky is set aflame with the aurora borealis. Ymir enjoys feasting on the smoking hearts of mortals who are slain beneath the axes of the frost giants. He is protective of his daughter Atali and will save her from harm when called upon, such as when she was chased and caught by Conan.[1]
