MYTHOLOGY : RAN, THE NORSE GODDESS OF THE SEA

The goddess Ran, whose name means “robber,” was as cruel, greedy, and insatiable as her husband. Her favourite pastime was lurking near dangerous cliffs, where she enticed mariners and cast her net. Having entangled the men in its meshes and broken their vessels on the jagged cliffs, she would calmly draw them down into her cheerless realm.
