Aldarrök, as mentioned in Vafþrúðnismál, is the destruction of an age. The end of the world as we know it. In the Ulfrheim sagas, humans rose to power after Ragnarök, but they’re as flawed as their old gods were. Örlog is not impressed. Twice they’ve brought Aldarrök on themselves, nearly wiping their whole race out, and the signs suggest it’s happening again. But who can read ancient signs?
Angel is Edda’s best friend and chosen sister. She lives with her daughter, Juicy, in a small commonhold flat in Sundsvall, Sweden. Angel works as a bartender at The Palace.
Her real name is Anna-Karin Svelander, but she was nicknamed Angel as she can be like an angel, a fallen angel or an avenging angel depending on her mood. A fearless fighter with a no-nonsense approach to life. She is loud, boisterous, generous, loyal and loving, but if you cross her or hurt her loved ones she’ll be coming for your blood.
Arse is British for what in the US is an ass. I.e. someone’s butt/buttocks/backside or anus. But it can also be a stupid or annoying person. If you don’t want to do something, you can say that you can’t be arsed. If you’ve done a poor job, it may have been half-arsed. And, if you’re in a particularly bad mood, it’s possible you’re being an arse.
Edda can’t be arsed to grab a shovel and clear the snow away when the kids are away.
