A Troll-like creatures in Norse mythology. They ride on three-legged horses and are used as auxiliary troops in battle. They carry bows but never use them unless a Christian has shot at them first. They have long noses which they use to stir their porridge. Originally they were believed to be the angles of Lucifer who fell from the heavens but evaded falling into hell. Some of these Angels became fairies and Brownies while others became Bergfolk.
