• Tomb Raider: Underworld – Arctic Sea

– Helheim
World of Hel. Here the goddess Hel, depicted as a woman on one side and a corpse on the other, presided over all souls that did not got to Valhalla after death. Judging by the ruined road and drawbridge, this site must be even more ancient than Niflheim to have been above sea level at some point. The top is heavily encased in permanent sea ice, so there may have been another, dryer way to get inside from somewhere above had Natla given me more precise coordinates, but I think I’d rather go in through the front door.

– Yggdrasil
The World Tree and binding element of all nine worlds of the Norse universe. Supposedly Helheim was situated under the roots of Yggdrasil. There is another myth that a great serpent, Níðhöggr, gnaws at the roots of Yggdrasil. Possibly this is another manifestation of the Midgard Serpent, which supports the theory that this site houses something monstrously world-threatening.

– Out of Time
Natla reveals to Lara that the midgard serpent is a metaphor for the earths tectonic ridges and that the Jormungandr mechanism is poised to attck the earths weakest point to initiate The seventh age by destroying the Planet. Once Lara has shut down the mechanism. Lara throws Mjolnir at Natla plummeting her to the Eitr below. Lara and Amanda use the Helheim Dais to return back to Nepal.
