"Realm of the Dishonored Dead"
|Inhabitants||Hel, dishonored dead|
Niflheim is one of the Nine Realms, and is the realm of the dishonored dead and is ruled by Hel, daughter of Loki, who is described as having half her body alive and the other half a rotting corpse. Only the dead who die in sleep of cowardly (not in battle) end up here. It is the home of the Niddhog, a dragon who eats at the roots of the tree that bind it.
