Frigga is the wife of Odin, queen of the Aesir, and goddess of the sky. One of the Asynjur, she is a goddess of marriage, motherhood, fertility, love, household management, and domestic arts.
Her primary functions are as wife and mother, but these are not her only functions. She has the power of prophecy although she does not tell what she knows , and is the only one other than Odin who is permitted to sit on his high seat Hlidskjalf and look out over the universe. She also participates in the Wild Hunt along with her husband, Odin.
Priests of Frigga must be married women. They are expected to watch over their home and set a good example for other wives by not letting their husbands stray too far out of the marital fold. If the husband of a priestess of Frigga practices the common Norse custom of taking a second wife, the priestess must divorce him immediately. They must also serve as midwives.
Frigga's clergy are simple folks rooted in the realities of daily life. They understand the pressures of feeding a family and the concerns associated with childbirth. They work to assist and support the faithful, and to provide comfort when needed. The clergy often serve double duty as local midwives for both people and livestock. If wild animals are ill or injured, Frigga's clergy travel the wilderness seeking, and dealing with, the source.
VestmentsPriestesses of Frigga almost uniformly wear ceremonial robes made of homespun and are the color of the sky, with white bands on the sleeves to denote rank. Priestesses of Frigga very rarely go on adventures that are not directly connected with their purview but if they do, they come well prepared an well-equipped.
TemplesFrigga's temples are just as strong and defensible as those of other Asgardians, but they tend to be simpler and smaller. They contain collections of scrying instruments, private rooms where clergy and faithful can confer, and small stores of healing supplies.
Those in rural areas may have wild animal hospitals. Communities of settled Halflings may have their own temple, or may share one with neighboring communities.
Visitors to Frigga's temples find the comfort of a warm, dry place to rest. Those truly in need find that the clerics' courtesy and generosity are bounded only by a desire to see the supplicant become self-sufficient.

Frigga is mostly depicted as a beautiful and strong spirited woman. In many pictures, she is shown with her husband Odin, paying tribute to her strong role as a wife in Norse mythology. She is often pictured against soft and beautiful backgrounds, which seem to symbolize her calming nature.
Frigga was married to Odin and they had a family together. Because of his untimely death, Balder is the first child many associate with the goddess.
