is the goddess of spring. She is married to Bragi, the god of poetry and song.
Idun is also the goddess of youth, and the keeper of the golden apples which
keep the gods of Asgard young. The body of anyone eating one of these apples
becomes 10 years younger. Of course, Ithunn and her apples are coveted by races
other than the Aesir, and the giants are constantly trying to kidnap her. Ithunn
has the power to slow or reverse the aging process in any being, or to awaken
any dormant or sleeping thing. In her true form, she is a youthful woman of
a cheerful and friendly goddess who takes great delight in seeing things grow
and remain healthy. She is extremely conscientious about making sure that every
god eats one of her apples every ten years. Ithunn is especially protective
of young girls, and there is a 10% chance that she will send help to protect
one who is in danger.
of the Priesthood
Only girls who dedicate themselves to Idun at a young age may become her priestesses. Their duties revolve around caring for orphans and blessing the spring planting.
