Ymir, also known as Father Of The Frost Giants, Ymir is one of the first beings created alongside Surtr. Ymir is the ancestor of all Jötunns (frost giants). He was born in Ginnungagap, a realm between Muspelheim and Niflheim. He was nourished by the primeval cow, Audhumla, and lived alongside Buri, grandfather of Odin, Vili and Ve, who was licked out of the ice by Audhumla. He was eventually killed by Odin, Vili and Ve and his body was used to create Midgard and the oceans.
