Power lies in strength and wit in the legends of Scandinavia. Immense Giants and great men challenged the gods to prove their worth and win the hand of a beautiful woman. The celestial animals keep watch and support the world in the cosmic tree Yggdrasil that holds all the nine worlds. Dwarves live underground forging magical items, and beasts lie dormant in the underworlds waiting until Ragnarok to partake in the final battle. The Norse section encompasses not only Norse mythology (pre-Christian from Nordic countries) but the mythical creatures of the Nordic countries in general.
