Niflheim, Old Norse Niflheimr, in Norse mythology, the cold, dark, misty world of the dead, ruled by the goddess Hel. In some accounts it was the last of nine worlds, a place into which evil men passed after reaching the region of death (Hel).
As a realm, Hel is described as a cold, shadowy place, inhabited by the souls of individuals who died in a so-called ‘cowardly manner’ (i.e., not in battle). In this way, it can be seen as the polar opposite of Valhalla – Odin’s hall of perpetual feasting, whose doors only open for those slain in conflict.
Hela (or Hel as she’s sometimes known) isn’t the cause of Ragnarok in Norse mythology, although she definitely plays a role. She is the goddess of the underworld (which confusingly enough is also called Hel), in charge of the souls that don’t make it to Valhalla.

To the Norse people, Hel represented death without honor. She symbolized the denial of everything enjoyable in the world, as shown by her plate, Hunger, and her knife, Famine. Hel may also be seen as a victim of circumstance, since she is banished from Asgard simply because her father is Loki.
