Loki and the giantess Angrboda had three children: Jormungandr, the World Serpent who encircled Midgard; Hel, the goddess of death who ruled over the underworld; and Fenrir, the gigantic wolf who would devour Odin at Ragnarok. Loki also had a child with the horse Svadilfari, who was a stallion. Loki transformed into a mare and gave birth to Sleipnir, an eight-legged horse who became Odin's steed.
