Ratatoskr, Ymir’s messenger, scurried into the mountain village of Ginnungagap and found the elderly Aske and Embla patiently waiting. “Did you bring them?” Embla asked hopefully as she handed him some nutbread.

Embla cried with alarm as three infant boys rolled out. “Those are babies, you idiot squirrel!
