Like standard conventional Asgardian gods, Freya possesses super human statistics and attributes. Super human strength enabling her to lift over 20 tons, super human stamina, and durability. A resistance to disease and afflictions. Freya herself has an odd inherent ability in that her very tears are akin to gold and possessive of an undefined but mystical nature. Sought out specifically and used as an ingredient in a spell/sacrifice. Presumably she may have more undefined powers associated with fertility and nature given her status.
Asgardian Goddess of fertility and a former Valkyrie.
Currently one third of the All-Mother of Asgardia.
Freya is a Norse goddess, child of Njord and Gaea (Nertha), and notable children of hers include Idunn, Sigyn and Nanna, she is of the Vanir. Freya is specifically the goddess of and associated with Love, Beauty, Fertility, Gold and Seid (a type of mystical power) Freya has also served as a Valkyrie, one of the chosen to ferry worthy dead to Valhalla. In modern times, the she may go by any of the names as follows. Frøya, Freya, Freja, Freyia, and Freia. Freya's beauty is valued by many, and known by many and she is known as being exceptionally beautiful at that and as such has impacted her life in various negative and positive ways, One of the more famous incidents being when the Asgardian gods were blackmailed by the giant Thrym, who had stolen Thor's mighty hammer Mjolnir, not willing to reveal its location unless Freya herself was offered up, and traded over to become Thyrms. Freya's stubborn refusal at such a trade despite a few pleas from various worried Asgardians fearing Asgards vulnerability without Thor with weapon in hand, thus causing Thor to have to dress as a women. Borrowing some of Freya's clothes, Thor goes about pretending to be the goddess of Fertility and Love himself. Thor dressed as Freya and Loki are both accepted into the giants stronghold. After various hours spent in the presence of the giants, Thrym, asserting himself as the victor of the deal, now that he has the beautiful goddess at his side, even despite her unusually voracious appetite and broad shoulders. In preparation for the wedding ceremony that would take place to make the trade off complete, the bride Freya (rather Thor dressed as her) was required to take hold of Thor's hammer. Finally with it within his grasp, Thor is able to reveal his true identity and lay waste to the highly surprised Frost giants. Freya was now definitely not required to be taken by the giants as a prize.
