THIALFI Son of the farmer egil and brother of roskva. He became thor's servant because he had disobeyed Thor's command not to break any of the bones of the goats on which he and his family were feasting in Thor's Journey to Utgard. Thialfi was long legged and fleet of foot, but he was outrun in a race with hugi Thought in Utgard. Thialfi was also Thor's companion in the duel with the giant hrungnir. He easily vanquished the clay giant, mokkurkalfi, which the stone-headed giants had created in an attempt to frighten Thor.
