Hœnir, Lóðurr and Odin create the first humans, Askr and Embla.

Lóðurr is a god in Norse mythology. In the Poetic Edda poem Völuspá he is assigned a role in animating the first humans, but apart from that he is hardly ever mentioned, and remains obscure. Scholars have variously identified him with Loki, , Vili and Freyr, but consensus has not been reached on any one theory.
