True Destiny Glossary
Aesir: The gods who took over from the Vanir, they are most commonly associated with war and power. They fought the Vanir for prominence, and when they won their leader, Odin, took hostage the gods Frey, Frejya and Njord. They are now led by Baldur, as Ragnarok has begun.

Jotun: A race of so-called "giants", they are closer to elementals in nature, being associated with fire, ice and rock. They interbreed with both the Aesir and the Vanir, creating demigods such as Magni and Modi. The most prominent Jotun in Norse Mythology is Loki, the Trickster God.
The Jotuns are:
Loki (aka Logan Tate-Saeter) Father of Fenrisulfr, Jormungandr, Hel, Sleipnir, Nari (whereabouts currently unknown), and Narfi (d.). Husband of Jordan Grey and Baldur.
Fenrisulfr (aka Fenris Saeter) Son of Loki. Husband of Jeffrey Grimm. Was imprisoned in a damp cave with a sword thrust through his jaws for centuries. It was Jeffrey who saved him.

Norns: Norns are Jotuns who came forth from Nifleheim to guard and protect the destinies of men, for good or ill. Like guardian angels, they follow a person from life through death, but the three most important norns are the Norns of Fate. The three Norns sit beneath Yggdrasil, tending to its needs before spinning the fates of men.
The three most important Norns are Urdr (the past), Verdandi (the present) and Skuld (the future).
Ragnarrok: The prophecy that declares the destiny of the gods, it is the end of Odin's reign and the beginning of Baldur's. It is supposedly signalled by Baldur's death.
Valkyrie: The Valkyries were women, most likely Jotuns, warrior women who would ride the battlefield, looking for those worthy of Valhalla, and carry them away on their steeds. Sometimes they interfered in the battle, helping one side over the other. They were under the command of Odin, though it is unknown if they still are. One noteable valkyrie is police detective Antonia "Toni" Mancinelli, a human whose valkyrie blood was awakened by contact with Baldur.
Vanir: The Vanir were agricultural gods led by the god Tyr. They lost the war between the Aesir and the Vanir, but Odin integrated the Vanir into the Aesir, creating one set of gods under his command. There are only six Vanir left alive from the war with the Aesir.
The Vanir are:
Tyr (aka Travis Yardley-Rudiger.) Husband of Jamie Grimm.
Heimdall (aka Nikolas de Witt)
Idunn (aka Ida Grimm, wife of Bragi)
Njord (aka Kye Vanderale)
