Underworld Deities- Hel in Helheim


Hel Half-rotten, Norse goddess of the underworld and Loki Lie-smith's daughter.  She's described both as half black or half rotten, so I did both.  I added black tattoos and her lower half is dead.  Her realm is for those who die of sickness, old-age, or any way not in the middle of battle.  Those who die in the midst of battle get taken to Valhalla by Valkyries.  Helheim, sometimes combined in appearance with Niflheim, is misty and covered in snow and ice.
