    (Hel (Old Norse Hel, “Hidden”[1]) is a giantess and goddess in Norse mythology who rules over Helheim, the underworld where the dead dwell. According to the thirteenth-century Icelandic scholar Snorri Sturluson, she’s the daughter of Loki and the giant Angrboða (“Anguish-boding”), and therefore the sister of the wolf Fenrir and the world serpent, Jormungand. She’s generally presented as being rather greedy and indifferent to the concerns of both the living and the dead.)

    (In Ovid's "The Metamorphoses," a traveler visits the home of King Lycaon of Acadia. Lycaon suspects that the visitor is immortal, so he devises a test. He serves human meat to his guest, who unfortunately turns out to be the god Jupiter. Jupiter immediately recognizes the meat's origin, and he transforms Lycaon into a wolf. Lycaon's name and the word lycanthropy both come from the same root -- the Greek word lykos, meaning wolf.)
