Let Sharena Introduce You!

Death Sovereign Hel

She curses the living and sends them helplessly into the embrace of death. She is Hel, sovereign of the realm of the dead…which is also called Hel!
Hel’s power is nourished by death, and her goal is to claim all who still live and breathe for her realm. After raising up the fallen Heroes Líf and Thrasir to be her servants, she began an invasion of Askr.
Hel carried out horrible acts to grow her power. She repeatedly executed Eir, a Hero who had been granted many lives, and used the strength that she gained to spread death throughout a number of other worlds. Askr was no exception to this terror, and our people began to succumb to her curse…
In another world, Hel succeeded in destroying Askr and Embla, and she even took the life of my very own father. Yet, I’m told that when she once embraced Eir as her own daughter, she gave off a tender warmth… Where did things go so wrong?
