Brok

Brok (Brokk) (hunchback) In Norse mythology, dwarf, brother of Eitri. Brok blew the bellows for the dwarf sons of Sindri, who were the gold workers. Eitri made a boar with golden bristles, then the ring Draupnir, and finally Thor’s hammer, Mjolnir. Loki, the evil god, tormented him by taking the form of a fly and buzzing around him. The fly bit him between his eyes, causing blood to flow into them. Brok appears in the Prose Edda.
