This afternoon I have been reading about Sol, Goddess of the Sun as she’s the most recent addition to Smite’s [official site] roster of playable deities. She hails from the Norse pantheon and I don’t think I knew much about her, preferring as a child to stick with the Greek myths and legends.
The lore Hi-Rez offer up has Sol being punished for her father’s hubris in naming her after the sun. Odin sends her to pull the chariot of the sun while being chased by one of the wolf sons of Fenrir. She is not exactly resigned to this fate and taunts the wolf, driven by her desire for freedom and chafing against the punishment handed down by Odin.
