I like to watch a lot of those crime dramas so I though it might be fun to use psychological profiling to try to bring her to life. From her family life we can assume several things. She does come from a two parent family, which shows some stability, but Od is constantly away traveling, and therefore the strong father image is not always available. It also states in the Eddas that Freyja often goes off searching for Od. This means either the child is left with others, or dragged along on these long trips. I remember I used to get cranky just having to go grocery shopping with my mother, I can just imagine the effect of having to constantly travel from place to place at such a tender age ! So we have established that she really doesn't have a stable home life. Now when you combine that with her immense beauty, (I am sure she is constantly being told how beautiful and special she is), you get a conceded little child who has the ability to push the boundaries of her youthful world. Particularly if she is left in the care of others while her parents are away ! She is more than likely a mischievous little girl, who feels she deserves much more then she gets.
Add to this mix her sister, Gersemi, and you have double trouble !
Her mother and others in the Vanir are known for their use of Seidr, (magic), it won the war against the Aesir, so we can assume that these powers are being taught to young Gersemi and Hnoss, by Freyja. When you add magic to the above mix you get what could be an explosive mixture of uncontrolled temper tantrums and mischievous, magical pranks.We can assume that she will grow out of this at some stage of her life and become a fine young Goddess, like her mother, and take her place amongst the Gods and Goddesses. But I would not want to cross her in the meantime.
Actually, in my minds eye, I see her a little bit like the witch mother-in-law on the sit-com Bewitched. Well maybe not quite that mean ! If you remember every time Darrin would make her angry she would turn him into a goat, or some other animal, to teach him a lesson. I see Hnoss doing this, in a more innocent and playful way, and then being yelled at by her mother or father to turn the magic around, and reverse what she had done. I can almost hear Hnoss' little giggle when I see her doing this in my minds eye.
When I think of Hnoss I think of youthful exhuberance and innocence. Behind her beautiful little smile however, is the knowledge that her beauty is not the only power that she has. To me she is like the Sun on a cloudy day, and an umbrella when it rains. As her mother, Freyja, stills the anger in my heart, little Hnoss puts a smile on my face, and sometimes she even makes me laugh. She is truly a treasure !
Go with Odin's wisdom, Freyja's love and Thor's protection !
