Ymir (pronounced "EE-meer") was one of three beings to emerge from the primordial void, Ginnungagap (he is preceded by Surt, the primordial fire giant that melted Niflheim's ice and instigated Ymir's birth, and followed by Audumbla, the primordial aurochs that nourished Ymir with her milk), and the first Frost Jotunn. His children, born from his armpits and feet, ruled Niflheim, the World of Ice. Ymir was finally slain by Odin and his brothers, and his body was used to form Midgard, the World of Humans. Ymir's flesh became the earth, his blood – the sea, his bones – the mountains, and his teeth – rocks and cliffs. Finally, Ymir's skull became the sky, protecting Midgard from above. The maggots that chewed through his decaying flesh evolved into the first Dwarfs.
- Ymir name literally translates to "The Scream". His true Jötunn name, Aurgelmir, means "Earth-Screamer".
