Ymir was an Isu [citation needed] and considered the ancestor to all jötnar in Norse mythology.

Biography

When the universe was but an empty void where fire met ice, Ymir came into existence with a mighty scream,[1][2] from venom that dripped from the icy rivers Élivágar.[3] In the void, Ymir suckled from the teat of Auðumbla, the primeval cow created from the same drops as Ymir.[4] The brothers Odin, Vili, and cruelly murdered the proto-being.[2] From Ymir's bones, blood and brains, the mountains, oceans, and clouds were created,[1] while Earth was made from his skin and muscles. His hair became the plants living there and his skull became the sky.[2]

Legacy and influence

In Asgard and Jötunheimr, gemstones representing Ymir's tears and blood were collected by Havi sometime during his travels and placed them on offering altars.[5]
