Freya is a Norse goddess, child of Njord and Gaea (Nertha), and notable children of hers include Idunn, Sigyn and Nanna, she is of the Vanir. Freya is specifically the goddess of and associated with Love, Beauty, Fertility, Gold and Seid (a type of mystical power) Freya has also served as a Valkyrie, one of the chosen to ferry worthy dead to Valhalla. In modern times, the she may go by any of the names as follows. Frøya, Freya, Freja, Freyia, and Freia. Freya's beauty is valued by many, and known by many and she is known as being exceptionally beautiful at that and as such has impacted her life in various negative and positive ways, One of the more famous incidents being when the Asgardian gods were blackmailed by the giant Thrym, who had stolen Thor's mighty hammer Mjolnir, not willing to reveal its location unless Freya herself was offered up, and traded over to become Thyrms. Freya's stubborn refusal at such a trade despite a few pleas from various worried Asgardians fearing Asgards vulnerability without Thor with weapon in hand, thus causing Thor to have to dress as a women. Borrowing some of Freya's clothes, Thor goes about pretending to be the goddess of Fertility and Love himself. Thor dressed as Freya and Loki are both accepted into the giants stronghold. After various hours spent in the presence of the giants, Thrym, asserting himself as the victor of the deal, now that he has the beautiful goddess at his side, even despite her unusually voracious appetite and broad shoulders. In preparation for the wedding ceremony that would take place to make the trade off complete, the bride Freya (rather Thor dressed as her) was required to take hold of Thor's hammer. Finally with it within his grasp, Thor is able to reveal his true identity and lay waste to the highly surprised Frost giants. Freya was now definitely not required to be taken by the giants as a prize.
On another occasion the one known as the Cruel Striker or otherwise known as Rimthursar, preyed on Freya's perceived good nature of gullibility, deceiving her with a false story that Odin had died. This news causing Freya to weep, her tears actually being tears of gold. Rimthursar collected these tears for his own nefarious means. Eventually Thor was required to end his threat.
Freya is a character from norse mythology.
Major Story Arcs
Upon the defeat of The Serpent, Odin leaves Midgard destroying the rainbow bridge behind him leaving the Asgardians on Midgard. This leaves the Vanir in charge to rule the Gods. Freyja, Gaea and Idunn rule in the All Mother Throne Room. It is here were Loki, now a child must come before them and explain is actions during Fear Itself. Freyja black mails him into being the Vanir's spy and errand boy.
Then some time later when Loki shows up with a litter of puppies bred from Garm and the Hel Wolf
she demands that he find a home for each of them or dispose of them. Loki finds a home for all but one, counting giving one to Gaea which Freyja disappoves of. Loki can't make himself kill the ill tempered hound, and names it Thori, another act of which Freyja disapproves. Later when Loki gets in a fight with a bully in Broxton, Freyja orders that he apologize, after sending him to his room to think about what he has done. This leads Loki into making deals with the Fear Lords and this displeases Freyja even more, and punishes Loki with having to rake the Ruingarden.
Powers and Abilities
Like standard conventional Asgardian gods, Freya possesses super human statistics and attributes. Super human strength enabling her to lift over 20 tons, super human stamina, and durability. A resistance to disease and afflictions. Freya herself has an odd inherent ability in that her very tears are akin to gold and possessive of an undefined but mystical nature. Sought out specifically and used as an ingredient in a spell/sacrifice. Presumably she may have more undefined powers associated with fertility and nature given her status.
