In Norse mythology, Valhalla is the place where the souls of those who die in battle are gathered to await Ragnarök, the end of the world. Among them are all sorts of warriors, from rulers to simple footsoldiers, and collectively they are known as the einherjar. There are several mythological creatures who live in Valhalla as well, such as the goat Heiðrún, who produces mead for the einherjar, and the stag Sæhrímnir, who is resurrected every night to provide sustenance for the einherjar.
Hel [Odin] cast into Niflheim, and gave to her power over nine worlds, to apportion all abodes among those that were sent to her: that is, men dead of sickness or of old age. She has great possessions there; her walls are exceeding high and her gates great. Her hall is called Sleet-Cold; her dish, Hunger; Famine is her knife; Idler, her thrall; Sloven, her maidservant; Pit of Stumbling, her threshold, by which one enters; Disease, her bed; Gleaming Bale, her bed-hangings. She is half blue-black and half flesh-color and very lowering and fierce. (Gylfaginning, from The Prose Edda by Snorri Sturlson)
