Surtr demon


Surtr is a fire jotun who leads his kin into battle against the Aesir and Vanir gods during Ragnarok, the cyclical destruction of the cosmos.

His particular destiny is to kill the god Freyr and to be slain by him in turn. He hails from Muspelheim, the extreme southern region of heat and fire, bearing his weapon of choice of a burning sword, with which the world is razed before it sinks into the sea.

Surtr wields a weapon known as the Twilight Sword, which is made entirely out of fire and is said to be as bright as the sun itself. When Surtr is slain, his fire will spread about the Earth and cause mass global destruction only for the world to be reborn anew.
