One of the Swan Maidens from the tales of Scandinavia. The others were Alvit, and Olrun.

These supernatural beings lived in a land called Murkwoood. They flew away from this place and ventured into the outside world. They arrived at Wolfdales and met three handsome husbands; Volundr, Egil and Slagfidr. They married these men and lived them for 7 years in the Wolfdales. Later they journeyed back with them to Murkwood to live there forever.
