Freya and the Mistletoe
Baldur used to be the favourite of the Aesir gods, so when his mom requested the entirety in introduction to not hurt her son, they approved. She most effective forgot to invite Mistletoe, which is what Loki sooner or later kills him with (in each Norse Mythology and God of Battle).

Angrboða, the “mom of monsters,” who will seem in God of Battle: Ragnarök, is Loki’s romantic passion in Norse Fable. No less than in North Mythology, she and Loki are the oldsters to Fenrir, Jörmungandr, and Hel, all of who play a component within the Twilight of the Gods.
