In Norse creation mythology, Vili and his brothers Odin and Ve rise up and slay the primeval Ymir, who had ruled the realm with his race of giants. The brothers then form heaven and earth from Ymir’s flesh, blood, bones and hair.
While walking on a beach on their newly formed earth, the brothers come upon two trees. From its wood and bark, they shape the first humans, Ask and Embla. Each brother gives the couple different qualities. From Vili, the couple receives their wit, intelligence and sense of touch.
