A Scandinavian Giant from Norse legend. His name translates as ‘Mist Calf’. He was made of clay, created by one of the Frost Giants. He supported Hrungnir, a Frost Giant that got into a fight with Thor. Hrungnir stated that he will one day sink Asgard the land of the gods ad abduct Freyr the powerful goddess of the hunt and Sif the beautiful wife of Odin. Thor was filled with rage with this insult and challenged him to a fight. Mokkurkalfi intervened and helped but Thor killed them both.
