Member of the Vanir who lives with the Æsir, daughter of Njord, sister-consort of Freyr. Her emblem is the necklace Brisingamen. Hers is the magic of reading runes, trancing and casting spells. She owns a falcon cloak, takes dove form, rides in a chariot drawn by two cats, or rides a boar. As leader of the Valkyries, she takes half those slain in battle and is traditionally associated with death and sexuality. She weeps tears of gold, which become amber, called "Freya's Tears".
