Hialli

Norse - A servant of Atli. When Atli captured Gunnar and Hogni and tortured them to make them disclose the hiding place of the Niblung's gold, he ordered that Hogni's heart be cut out to force his brother to speak. His servants, fearful of such a warrior, killed the scullion Hialli instead and took his heart to Atli. Gunnar rejected it as his brother's heart with the result that they then killed Hogni and cut out his heart. In some accounts, called Hialli.
