The Norse Goddess of Youth and Immortality. She is responsible for giving the Golden Apples of Immortality to noble Odin so that he may bestow them upon those he deems worthy. She brings each year to the lordly Odin.

*** ORIGIN ***
Idunn is the daughter of Freya, the goddess of fertility, and Iwaldi, a dwarf who took part in the creation of the treasures for the gods. Odin appointed Idunn Keeper and guardian over the Golden Apples, whose mysterious and mystical abilities literally stopped the aging process of the Asgardians. The Golden Apples of Idunn make the Asgardians immortal as they are grow only in Asgard, and can only be picked by Idunn herself. They are what grant the Asgardians gods youth, strength, and practical immortality. Idunn the goddess was once attacked by Fenris Wolf, who made it his goal to steal the Golden Apples from her, but was foiled as she was saved by Haaken the Hunter who briskly fought Fenris off. After the events of Ragnarok, Idunn like the rest of the Asgardians temporarily ceased to be, before being restored by a reawakened and revitalized Thor some period of time later, like many of her fellow gods.
She is also referred to as Iduna on occasion.
