THIAZZI TJASSE, THJAZI A powerful storm giant. He was the son of olvaldi, brother of gang and idi, and father of skade. He lived in thrymheim. Disguised as an eagle, Thiazzi tricked loki into helping him kidnap idunn, the goddess in charge of the magic apples of youth. In turn, Loki tricked the giant and returned Idunn to asgard. Thiazzi was killed at the gates of Asgard. His daugh-ter, Skade, was given as a husband the vanir god niord as compensation for her father's death. The great god odin threw Thiazzi's eyes into the heavens to stay there forever as gleaming stars.
