Cosima is the Skoti god of the sea from Kaldheim.

Description[edit | edit source]

Uniquely among the gods she was born a Cosmos monster. She is curious, tempestuous and can't stay in one place for long.[1]

Cosima features in just about every prayer that the Omenseekers make while at sea.[2] The "Omenkeel", Cosima's longboat, is a magical vehicle that can carry its passengers through the Cosmos to any of the Ten Realms and a destination chosen by the goddess.

History[edit | edit source]

The planeswalker Kaya was given the use of Cosima's longboat in her quest to find Vorinclex, but was steered towards Gnottvold to find Tibalt instead.[3]

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • She is based on Rán, the old Norse goddess of the sea, and Njörðr, the old Norse god of sea, seafaring, wind, fishing and wealth.
  • Cosima's origin as a Cosmos monster may be inspired by Skaði; she was a jötunn who got accepted in the Norse pantheon.
  • Furthermore, it must be noted that in the myth, the God of Winter was female, while the God of the Sea was male. Thus, it may be assumed that Cosima and Jorn are gender-bendered versions of their inspirations.
  • The Omenkeel is based on Skíðblaðnir, the magic boat of the god Freyr.
