In Völsunga saga he is the father of Hljóð, whom Frigg sends to Rerir as a "wish-maid" with the apple that enables his wife to conceive Völsung—and subsequently Hrímnir himself sends Hljóð to Völsung to be his wife. This resembles the story of Peredur in the Arthurian cycle, and the modern folktale "The Sea-Maiden."
