I'm confused. I guess that Bastet gets in by subsuming the responsibilities of her consort, but what is Freya doing here. I thought the Norse had Sol (accent on the o), which was shared with the Germans who called her Sunna.

I'm still confused about the existence of Norse gods in a world without war, given the abhorrence of straw death.
