Daily Mythological Creature: Jotunn

Don’t call it a comeback because I’ve been here for years! Side note:Sorry that the other blog got its posts up first. They were harder to do and these post are easier so I left it until the last minute.

Now why in every mythology I look into there are always giants? Are these ancient folks trying to give me a short man’s complex?

Jotunn

Jotunn

Short Bio

The Jotunn are a mythological race that live in Jotunheimr, one of the nine worlds of Norse cosmology. They were banished there by the Esir Norse gods who refused them entry into their world, Asgard. Despite that during the myths, the Jotunn often interact with the Norse gods, sometimes friendly and sometimes violently. Some of the Jotunn are described as hideous with large fangs, claws, and disturbing deformities such as extra heads or extra arms. However once one gets down to more specific Jotunn they can be described the exact opposite. For example, the Jotunn Skadi was often described as beautiful and the ‘bright bride of the gods.’ The Jotunn were also known to be very wise. During one time, Odin the king of the gods went to the Jotunn Mimir to gain knowledge about Fimbulvinter, the long winter that is the final sign before the beginning of Ragnarok.

Can’t A Guy Get A Break?

Hey everyone it’s Deven again. I already gave out the news on Twitter so if you follow me on Twitter disregard this post.

For those that don’t follow me on Twitter, then here’s the update. My apartment complex gives me free internet which is great but it has an annoying habit of breaking down when I need it the most, like when I’m starting a new anime review blog and I need the internet to do my work!

Now I know that I said that the new blog wasn’t going to affect Thief Fantasy and other Mystical Happenings and technically I haven’t lied. It didn’t…the internet did. So as for the blog I’m going radio silent until my complex can get the internet back up but don’t worry. I’ve got some posts lined up through April 11th to keep you tided over.

Now to another big piece of news. My one year anniversary is coming up on April 19th. Big thanks for all of you that have been here since the beginning. Now originally I had intended to update my five first posts with new information and new pictures but with the internet as sketchy as it is, I can’t. So I’ll be kicking the anniversary posts back to some time in early May or so when the internet should be fixed.

So until then can you bare with me?

Catch you guys later.

Monday Special Post: Sneak Peek at the Characters

Everyone’s got a little sister but here’s something you don’t think about. Can you little sister can’t be this cute?

 

Name: Haruhi Suzumiya
Nickname: the Daughter in the Darkness, Ms. Melancholy
Age: 11
Nationality: Japanese-American, Third Generation
Gender: Female
Eyes: Bright Grey
Blood Type: B
Weapons: None
Hometown: New York City, New York

Haruhi Suzumiya is the younger sister of Jacob and Halley Suzumiya and a good friend of Silas Voleur. Her older brother and sister were born after their parents got ferility eggs from a clinic that happened to belong to Nyx, the Royal S-Class of Darkness. However six years later, Haruhi was born, a completely unexpected development. She grows up looking up to her brother, sister, and their bandmates. She often gets jokes about how her name is exactly like the anime character. Ironically that anime is her favorite TV show.

On the 31st of May, Haruhi went with her brother and his bandmates to a concert they were having at the Japanese Embassy in New York City. This is where she meets her future best friend, Honoria ‘Honey’ Watson. During the concert, she and Honey were kidnapped by Team Neos in order to get a ransom from Honoria’s father. However they were rescued by Silas and Jacob. Later that summer, Haruhi brings Honey to Silas to get trained in how to control her powers.
