The Wolfson's Children

Post # 1

Skoll and Hati

Who is Skoll/Hati?
Skoll and Hati are two wolf deities/jotuns from Norse lore. Skoll "Treachery" and Hati "Enemy" both hail from the Ironwood, a part of Jotunheim where the jotunfolk live. Their mother is believed to be the Hag of the Ironwood, or Angrboda, and their father is thought to be Fenrir- though it never specifically states.

In UPG provided by Raven K, he states: "When Fenrir first ran amuck he went back to the place where he was born. It is not known what happened to him there, save that when he left his maddened devouring rage began in earnest and a woman from [there] had borne two wolf pups in the image of their father. In some accounts, the mother of Hati and Skoll was Angrboda herself, by Fenrir her son, though we may never know the truth of this.

When Fenris was chained, Hati and Skoll attempted to interfere. They were captured by rthe Aesir and Odin put them to use, in the same way he used the Midgard Serpent. Sunna and Mani had often been known to change their course or dawdle. So Odin put the two wolves into the sky as a way to keep the chariots, night and day, on time. Skoll was bespelled to chase Sunna's chariot, and Hati was charged with chasing Mani's chariot."

In the end, when Ragnarok begins, Skoll and Hati will be released from their eternal chase of night and day. During this time they will kill and devour both Sunna and Mani, bringing about massive destruction and serving as the symbol that Ragnarok has truly begun. After they devour the sun and moon, they will join in the fight with their Father.

Outside of this, much isn't known about Skoll and Hati. They were never traditionall worked with or honored, so much of this has to then come from UPG/PCPG from reconstructionalist and those who work with the Rokkr. Like their father, Fenrir, they are believed to be very ravenous and hungry. They are also believed to be very emotional deities, in that they express wrath and anger much more frequently than other deities in that pantheon.

Offerings for Skoll/Hati:
It is not common to work with Skoll or Hati. While it is believed that they do like to roam when not chasing Sunna and Mani, they aren't particularly known for working with anyone or giving any benefit to those who give them offerings. Like their father, they are unpredictable. However, many people (Rokkatruars in particular) still like to honor them.

They don't have any set or particular colors. It's been suggested that their colors could be red, orange, black, dark blue and white to represent the shades of the sun and the moon/night and day. If you're going to make an altar to them, I would divide it in half with the colors representing both wolves, and appropriate colored candles on either side. Since they are jotun, and the kin of Fenrir, blood offerings would be the most appropriate- I should think. Offering them things symbolic of wolves, or of the sun and moon would be good as well. Carving wooden figurines for the altar could work.

Invocation:
"The Sun Cart's wheels are ripe red fruit,
Let them sink on my teeth, run their juices on my tongue;
Let the chase I am set be a game that I play,
With laughter, leaping, with wit may I run.

The Moon Cart's wheels are pearly fruit,
Let them sink on my teeth, run their juices on my tongue;
Let the chase I am set be the prey I will hunt,
With knowing, keening, like Death may I run."

Just out of curiosity have you had experience with these two ? Strong UPG? Also how are they for connecting too, do they share the same unwelcoming attitude like fenrir or are they a little more open even though they are still emotional/angry?

I've left offerings for them alongside my altar to Fenrir, but I've never had any one-on-one work done with them. I get the feeling that they don't care much for our involvement, even less so than Fenrir, as they are focused on other things. I'm not sure I could think of a way that they would be beneficial to someones practice. I think honoring them, and any other deity, is important but I'm not quite sure how one would go about working with them.

A good book to consider, in my opinion, is Feeding the Flame by Krasskova. It's a devotional book to Loki and his family. I found it to be really insightful. As for just reading about them in general? You'll largely find information about them in the Eddas. But you might check out the northernpaganism.org site and look at the individual shrines of Loki, Fenrir, Hel, etc. They offer links to more information and things to read about each other them.

Thank you so much personified,
The way that Skoll and Hati are thought as make a rather interesting read. Do they tend to stay together like it seems? or do sometimes they go off as two differents, do their own thing?

They are normally depicted together, worked with together, and so on. I cannot think of a time, from my experience and reading, when they've been worked with seperately.

That's not to say you couldn't work with them as two different aspects if you wanted to.
