Norse Mythology

Baldur is one of the Aesir gods. He’s the son of Odin and Frigg, the husband of the goddess Nanna, and the father of the god Forseti.

When Baldur began to dream of his death, his mother, Frigg, went to everything in the world and asked them to never hurt her son. However, the only thing she didn't ask was the mistletoe. Taking advantage of this, Loki made a spear out of mistletoe and put Hödr, a blind god, to throw it at Baldur. He quickly died, and the other gods decided to bring him back. Hermod went went to Hel ans saw his brother beside the goddess of death. After being asked to release Baldur, Hel agreed to do so if everything in the world mourned for him. The gods managed to persuade thing to mourn Baldur, but one creature named Thökk (Loki in disguise) refused to do so. Because of this, Baldur remained in Hel.
