—Múspell to Laegjarn
As explained by Nifl, many years ago, Múspell was the one who killed Hvergel by enacting the flames of Múspell on her. He did this on purpose for he knew that Nifl would have no choice but to kill her in order to end her suffering. Soon after, he was challenged by Nifl, with the duel ending in a draw, and both returned to their respective elements, ice and flame.
A year after Laegjarn performed the Rite of Flames, Múspell revived Laegjarn by using the power of his flames. He demands her to kneel; he explains to her that he has lent her his power for the time being until he reclaims it back, until then she is his servant; her life is in his hands. Although she is aware of who he is, she has no intentions to becoming his slave. Múspell is impressed by her attitude, claiming it reminded him of 'another he lent his flame to long ago', but dismisses it and then explains to her that he has revived her to fight against Nifl's champion, Fjorm. Laegjarn instantly refuses, telling him that Fjorm is her friend. Múspell does not care for this, telling her to kneel and beg, as she then screams in pain.
As Nifl and Fjorm near, Múspell tells Laegjarn that Fjorm will have a similar power that he has granted her, questioning her onto how it could play out. Laegjarn figured that with both powers it could turn to be a draw, to which Múspell agreed with her theory; claiming that both his and Nifl's powers are equal. Laegjarn stated that they both maybe powerful beyond mortals but not when it comes to strategy. She questions Múspell on how he plans to win. Múspell then tells her a secret, that his victory has been decided from the very beginning when the dawn of the nine realms came to be, laid out in a prophecy in the Twilit Runes. Based on what was foretold in the Twilit Runes, Múspell gives Laegjarn a Flame Gem, which should resurrect any character struck down by frost, granting him an advantage. It's revealed that Loki is the one who told Múspell about the contents of the Twilit Runes.
When Nifl and Múspell meet and the duel occurs, Fjorm chooses to take her own life rather than take Laegjarn's, piercing herself with her own frost. Having been killed by frost, Múspell's Flame Gem brings Fjorm back to life, fulfilling the prophecy in a way Múspell hadn't forseen. Fjorm uses ice to repel Múspell, causing him to fade away, swearing that when he returns, he'll settle the score by raining death down upon the world.
Múspell is very reminiscent of his elemental representation of fire; hot-blooded, violent, and destructive. He revels in conflict and believes that humans are nothing more than beasts who should return to their more primal instincts. He sadistically revives Laegjarn solely for the purposes of sating his desires for carnage and disregards any of her feelings towards Nifl's champion, Fjorm. Múspell seems to have some level of respect or at least amusement for anyone bold enough to defy his will, but nonetheless forces any under his command to submit or else be burned to their very soul.
