textbook:

The Greek and Roman Pantheon of gods and accompanying mythology is really great. However, Norse mythology kind of owns everything. They have Odin, Thor, the Valkyries, Loki and of course, Frejya, pictured above. Frejya is the Norse equivalent of Aphrodite, invoked in matters of love, fertility, beauty, gold and war. In addition to her regular duties, she is responsible for 50% of deceased soldiers. After the Valkyries claim the fallen in battle, half will go to Odin in the mythical after-plane Valhalla and the rest go to Fólkvangr, under Freyja’s protection. Her attributes are a feathered cloak and a mythical necklace called Brísingamen. She’s pretty badass I guess, one time she convinced Thor to dress up as a woman and marry a giant. Norse mythology is crazy!
