In Norse mythology and his brother Galar, were wicked dwarves who killed Kvasir and turned his blood into the mead of poetry, which inspired poets. They appear in Skáldskaparmál. Fjalar and Galar murdered a giant named Gilling, along with his wife, their son, searched for his parents and threatened the dwarven brothers, who offered him the magical mead in exchange for sparing their lives. Suttungr hid it in the center of a mountain, with his daughter, Gunnlöð, standing guard. Odin decided to obtain the mead, he worked for Baugi, Suttungr's brother, for an entire summer asked for a small sip of the mead. Baugi drilled into the mountain but Odin changed into a snake and slithered inside. Inside, Gunnlöð was guarding the mead.
