Who is the Mermaid in God of War Ragnarok?

Ran is the mermaid you encounter in God of War Ragnarok. She like many other characters is different from her version in Norse Mythology. In fact, she isn’t even a mermaid in the North myths. She is the goddess and personification of the sea. Ran married the giant Aegir and they had 9 daughters. Since she personifies the sea, her daughters used to personify the waves. Together the mother and her daughters used to capture anyone traversing the Sea with her net. And she even lent her net to Loki once.

But the Mermaid we meet in the game isn’t exactly the goddess as described above. Now before proceeding any further, there are spoilers ahead about a weapon in the game. So if you don’t have Kratos’ third weapon yet, I suggest you check this part of the guide after progressing through it.

The mermaid we encounter in GoW Ragnarok is apparently a skilled blacksmith and her domain is actually a Forge. Hence she is also referred to as The Lady of the Forge. She helps Kratos by making him his third weapon, the Draupnir Spear. Now there is a chance that this mermaid is another creature altogether but going by the Norse myths, the character that fits with her most should be Ran. This isn’t the first thing the game has modified.

If we talk about the Draupnir Spear, in mythology it isn’t even a spear at all. It is just a ring, which Ran did not create. Draupnir was originally forged by Brok and Sindri.
