Heimdall and Freyja

Heimdal (or Heimdallur) is one of the gods in Northern mythology. He is the guardian of the Bifröst Bridge. He was the son of nine different mothers and was called the White God.

Heimdal is the guardian of the gods. He will blow a horn, called the Gjallarhorn, if Asgard is in danger. His senses are so good that he can hear the grass grow and he can see to the end of the world. Heimdal could hear a leaf fall. He does not need any sleep at all.

Heimdal was said to be the last of the gods to die at Ragnarok when he and Loki would kill one another.
