Death of Baldr
When her son, Baldr, had nightmares about his own death, Frigg went to every living thing in the Nine Worlds to have them promise not to hurt her son. She has the word of everything in creation except mistletoe. Loki, who had discovered Baldr's weakness, tricked Baldr's brother Höðr into throwing a mistletoe dart at Baldr, therefore killing him.
In the Series
When her daughter, Mallory Keen was unknowingly tricked into installing a bomb on a school bus by Loki in 1972, Frigg appeared in the form as an old lady and convinced Mallory to disarm the bomb and gave her two knives so she would be accepted into Valhalla.
When Mallory sees the old lady who was there on her death, she runs off to pursue her. Magnus, Samirah and Mallory followed the old lady into a train carriage. Mallory, who thought the old lady was Loki, threatens her, but Samirah tells Mallory that it's not Loki. The old lady then reveals herself as Frigg and tells Mallory that she is her mother. Mallory is outraged that Frigg would choose to reveal herself only now, but Frigg told her that she always loved her. She then explains that she can see into the future and predicted everything that would've led up to now. Frigg explains to the three what they must do to get Kvasir's Mead, and gives Mallory a walnut which would trap Loki.
Frigg is a middle-aged woman of regal beauty, her long hair was red like Mallory Keen's and plaited down both shoulders. She wore war helm of white metal, glowing and flickering like trapped neon gas. Her white dress seemed made of the same stuff, only woven into gentle folds. She had white-and-gold eyes and underneath were faint and jarring scars scoring her cheeks from the tracks of tears she cried at Balder's funeral, it was first time she wept in her entire life.
In disguise, Frigg looked like an old woman with rounded shoulders and a hunched back. Her head craned forward like it was trying to get away from her body. Her white knit sweater was so fuzzy it might have been cotton candy, and cocked on her head was a matching floppy hat that made it hard to see her face. Dangling from one arm was a bag stuffed with yarn and knitting needles.
As queen of the Norse gods, Frigg possesses incredible and supreme power though not quite on par with her husband's. She is considered by many to be the true power and mind behind the throne.
- Hyetokinesis: As the goddess of rain she has absolute and divine control over it. She literally knits new clouds.
- Persuasion: Frigg was able to convince all things, bar mistletoe, to never harm Balder implying a persuasive nature. This is more then likely what makes her the power behind the throne.
- Advanced Intellect: Frigg is an incredible thinker, a facet of herself that plays heavy on her position as queen.
- Precognition: As the goddess of prophecy, Frigg can see into the future. She is exceptionally clairvoyant, though she refuses to tell anyone of what she sees.

- Frigg never cried in her life except when Baldr died. She is destined to cry again at Ragnarök when her husband, Odin, gets eaten by the monstrous wolf Fenrir.
- She is the foremost goddess of the Æsir and often confused with Freyja.
- Friday was named after either her or Freyja.
- Both Freyja and Freyr (as well as Frigg) are associated with the Fehu Rune.
- She is rumored to be an aspect of Jörð, the personification of the Earth and mother of Thor.
- Frigg is the first queen god to have an illegitimate child in the series.
- The word "Frigg" is believed to come from a root word meaning "beloved". That root word is also the source of English "friend" and Sanskrit "priya" (meaning "loved, favorite").
- Her Greco-Roman equivalent would be Hera/Juno.
- However, unlike the queen of Olympus, she has demigod children.
- Like the Egyptian goddess Tefnut, she is a mother and a goddess of rain.
