    Hati & Skoll

    In Norse mythology, Hati Hróðvitnisson (first name meaning "He Who Hates, Enemy" is a warg that according to Gylfaginning chases the Moon across the night sky, just as the wolf Sköll chases the Sun during the day, until the time of Ragnarök when they will swallow these heavenly bodies, after which Fenrir will break free from his bonds and kill Odin.

    This is freakin' AWESOME! Mjolnir with the wolves Fenrir (son of Loki - will slay Odin at Ragnarok), Skol (chases the chariot that pulls the sun across the sky), and Hati (chases the moon). My inner Norse mythology geek is showing again, huh?

    The legend of Hati and Skoll, children of Fenrir. Hati chases the moon and Skoll chases the sun in attempts to swallow them. At Ragnarok Hati and Skoll will succeed in their endeavours.

    Valkyries and Freya - before Odin, the Mother angel Goddess was central to life of all tribes. This is also seen in Ishtar, Isis, Ma'at, Nephthys, Astarte, Lilith, and many other goddesses/the first angels. These angel goddesses were also prevalent in pre-American tribal nations, Indonesian, Tibetan and other cultures.
