To Norse Gods

Eddas Surtur is is both the lord and deity of the fire giants of the fire giants in the south, the ruler of Muspel, the realm of fire. He was married to Sinmore. He can control any fire in Midgard. Surtr resembles an immense fire giant, with crackling flames for hair and eyebrows.
Like all giants, Surtr hates the Aesir and is anxiously awaiting Ragnarok. He will lend his aid to any plan that troubles the Aesir.

In Snorri Sturluson's Edda (1179-1241): "Surtur is the one so named who stands on Múspell's border, guarding the land. His sword is flaming and as the world ends he will go out, make war against and triumph over the gods. And he will burn the whole world with fire" (Gimlé Gylkaginning, iv).

Only Hodmimir's Forest will remain, because that is the only thing his sword can not destroy. He will kill the unarmed god Freyr as well.

In the final battle, Surtur and his Fire-Giants burst forth. :"In Surtur's grasp the Sword of Revenge blazes, adding a blood red colour to the twilight of the whole world."
