September 6. Sigmund (50) comes across an old man and challenges him, not knowing that the old man is Odin (1399), who is there to get vengeance on behalf of his wife Frigga (1211), who is sickened by the incest and adultery the twins have been committing. In their fight, Odin shatters the mystical sword Gram, leaving Sigmund open to attack by Hunding, Hjördis's husband. As Sigmund lay dying, he tells Hjördis that she is pregnant with his child, and the child will one day become a great hero using the fragments of Gram.8 The Valkyrie Brynhildr (46) defies Odin's orders, and takes Hjördis and the remnants of Gram and hides them away. Odin feels forced to curse Brynhildr, but she convinces him to lessen the sentence, as she was acting towards Odin's true desires. Odin strips Brynhildr of her birthright as a demigoddess, and places her in a deep sleep. He entreats Loki (409), god of fire, to surround her with a mystical flame, and that the only one who can pierce it must be worthy of her (based, as always, on Odin's standards).9
