GN'a (pronounced NYA) is the Norse Goddess of the breeze. She is one of Frigg's handmaidens, and acts as her messenger and scout. Her horse, H'ofvarpnir (Hoof-thrower), is able to run across air and water, carrying Gn'a to her destinations. On one of her journeys, Gn'a came across a king who was in despair over his lack of an heir. She reported this back to Frigg, along with the fact that the king had always been a faithful worshipper, making offerings of fruit to the Gods. Frigg gave Gn'a a magical apple to take back to the king. When Gn'a returned to where she had seen the king, she transformed into a crow and perched in the tree above him. She dropped the apple down, and the king, realizing it was a gift from the Gods, took it home for his wife to eat. In answer to their prayers, she became pregnant and bore a son to carry on the family name. The son, Volsung, became a great hero, immortalized in the Volsunga Saga. Gn'a's name, which means "to fly high," is also seen as GNAA or LJOD.
