“Then is fulfilled Hlín's second sorrow, when Óðinn goes to fight with the wolf, and Beli's slayer, bright, against Surtr.Then shall Frigg's sweet friend fall”-Poetic Edda.
Little is known of the goddess Hlin, she is a handmaid of Frigg, dressed in armour carrying a sword and symbolised by a shield, she is a protector heading out into danger to rescue women in trouble and fugitives from law. She also gives solace to those who have lost loved ones, kissing away their tears. Her name means ‘Help or Protector.’
