Also Baldur or Balder. God of peace, son of Odin and Frigga. Baldr was troubled by nightmares that his death would be a sign of Ragnarok's coming. Frigga asked all objects of the nine worlds to abstain from harming Baldr, with the exception of mistletoe.

After this immunity, the gods would entertain themselves throwing things at Baldr. Loki took advantage by secretly handing Hod a dart of mistletoe.

Still after his death, the gods pleaded with Hel not to take him. Hel decreed that if all of the nine worlds mourned, Baldr would return to life. Loki took the form of a giantess, refused to weep and Baldr remained dead.
