Buri is the first god in Norse mythology. He was created, not by a mother or father, but by a giant frosty cow named Audumbla. As she licked the salty blocks of ice in Ginnagagap, the shape of a man, Buri, was formed and she nourished him with her milk.
Buri had a son named Bor who in turn had three sons, the gods Vili, Ve and Odin, from whom came the beginnings of Norse mythology. His name means, aptly, "producer."
