Freyja is the goddess of love, fertility, beauty, gold, sorcery, war, and death. (She’s a busy lady.) She’s beautiful, mysterious, and powerful. Every goddess wants to be her, and every giant wants to marry her. Invoking her name when you plant your crops guarantees a banner year for your harvest. All that, and she’s got a killer wardrobe and some serious bling to boot. No question about it, Freyja is definitely the superstarlet of the Norse pantheon.

Jewelry and accessories: Plenty, especially a necklace called Brisingamen
Clothing: When Freyja isn't in the nude, she may be wearing her magical feather dress.
Type of weapon: None
Known hangouts: If you can't find Freya at her hall, Folkvangr, look for her at Odin's house (oh, snap) or with the dwarves.
