Norse Mythology, presenting a vast gallery of personalities, still has one appearance, which strikes me as weirder than most. Suddenly entering the stage and just as swiftly leaving it in a blaze, if not of glory, at least of roaring fire. The character I’m referring to is the dwarf Lit.

As the gods have gathered around to prepare the funeral pyre of the beloved Balder, Lit comes hurrying past for no obvious reason whatsoever. Not mentioned before, he here makes the mistake that prohibits him from any further partaking in the adventures of the Aesir as he scurries along not just anywhere but in the way of the mighty Thor.

Lit (?)

, a form of the imp. & p. p. of Light.
