Aska the skrímsli was formed in the shadows from the flickering light of an oil lamp in a turf house in the proximity of Mýrdalsjökull glacier. Underneath the ice the volcano Katla stirred. The ash cloud that followed surrounded the house for weeks.
The turf house belonged to a peasant and his wife. During the aftermath of the eruption outlaws roamed the region, stole food and attacked people. Each time thieves sneaked up to the house Aska would make it disappear from sight. She hid the couple and scared away anyone with ill-intention.
Aska has the ability to hide creatures and things from sight. She safeguards those around her. Aska is a skrímsli of protection and safety.
