A Giantess who angered Thor at a funeral they were both attending. During the processions, Thor wished to launch the Hring-Horni although Hyrrokin was set to do this task. When she launched the Hring-Horni anyway, Thor became enraged and he kicked a Dwarf called Lit onto the funeral prier. Lit was burnt to death.
