Norse - A giant. Brother of Fafnir, in some accounts. In the Wagner version, Fafnir and his brother Fasolt, Frost Giants, built Valhalla for Odin but demanded Freya as payment. When they were given the Rhinegold as ransom, they fought over the treasure. Fafnir killed his brother and then used the Helmet of Invisibility to change himself into a dragon. In Germanic stories, as Fasold, he was the brother of Ecke and, when Dietrich rescued Bolfriana and her nine daughters who had been imprisoned by Ecke, he joined forces with Dietrich. Also referred to as Fasolt, Fasold or Fasold.
