As one of the regents of Pandemonium's sprawling netherworld, Hel keeps family close and her allies closer. Her beauty has won her many admirers, but made her distrustful of others' intentions, and while she chooses her words wisely, her tongue can have a razor's edge.
Hel specializes in short-range, brutally damaging combat. Her hot kisses can, when blown, detonate with incredible destructive power. She also puts her limber legs to effective use, lashing foes with lightning-fast flurries of kicks.
In Norse mythology, Hel presides over the realm with the same name (the underworld), where she receives a portion of the dead. She is Loki's daughter and sister to the wolf Fenrir and serpent Jörmungandr. She was appointed by the god Odin as the ruler of a realm and played a key role in the resurrection of Baldr. Her appearance is described as half blue and half flesh-coloured, further having a gloomy, downcast appearance.
