Lapp - Brother of Aino. He was originally a Frost Giant, developed from an icicle. When he challenged Vainamoinen, the magician buried him up to his neck in a bog. To save himself, he promised to give Vainamoinen his sister, Aino, as a wife. When Aino killed herself, rather than marry Vainamoinen, Joukahainen tried to kill him by wrecking his boat but was unsuccessful. Occasionally referred to as Joukahainen.
