Skadi – Norse Mythology – Skadi was married to Njord, the Vanir God of wind, seafarers, coasts and inland waters. She is the daughter of the frost giant Thiazzi. Skadi is the Goddess of winter, skiers and hunters. Skadi picked Njord as her husband because of his beautiful feet but they could not agree where to live. Njord thought that the home of Skadi in the land of the jotuns was to cold and deserted.
While Skadi didn't like the noise and fuss of the shipbuilding around Njord's home, Noatun in Asgard. Skadi was happy only in the mountains with her beloved wolves. After nine nights at each place, they decided to live by themselves. Skadi went back to her favorite interest to hunt of skis, and the weather bitten Njord, returned to the sea.
In Heimskringla, Skaði is described as having split up with Njörðr and as later having married the god Ullr, and that the two produced many children together. In both the Poetic Edda and the Prose Edda, Skaði is responsible for placing the serpent that drips venom onto the bound Loki. Skaði is alternately referred to as Öndurguð (Old Norse "ski god") and Öndurdís (Old Norse "ski lady").

Awesome design on Skadi. Love it
This is truly exquisite! (And I say that even as a Loki-lover who is no fan of Skadi's.)
Very cool. I have an alien character who is named Skadi. She is named after her grandmother and I modeled her species after StarCraft's Protoss and StarGate SG-1's Asgard.
