Helblindi

In Norse mythology, Helblindi ("Hel-blinder" or "All-blind" - possibly rendered as, "Death-defier") is a jötunn, a brother of Loki and Býleistr, and several times noted as the son of Laufey, and perhaps, the son of her husband, Fárbauti ("cruel-striker").

 

Although it is not directly attested in any original source, scholars have considered Helblindi to be a son of Fárbauti. His exact role in the ancient mythic complex surrounding Loki's family remains unclear, however.

 

"Helblindi" also is a heiti, used to describe Odin.
