Skadi

Skadi

In Norse mythology, Skaði (sometimes anglicized as Skadi, Skade, or Skathi) is a goddess associated with bowhunting, skiing, winter, and mountains.

In all sources, Skaði is the daughter of the deceased Þjazi, and Skaði married the god Njörðr as part of the compensation provided by the gods for killing her father Þjazi. In Heimskringla, Skaði is described as having split up with Njörðr and as later having married the god Odin, 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.
