Mann points to the utopian works that have informed many of the books on. The high priests of the Gottlungs, the Culds, say that the Sisters meet when eclipses come and decide matters of life and death for the chosen ones, those who bear the seal of the Sleeping God, their brother — apart from his will.
So the Accurs have written in the tablets of Risterverden. Amate the Sun has no interest in the affairs of mortals, and barely any interest in the affairs of the gods. She only has interest in herself. She is depicted nude, wearing a cloak, her hair spreading out as sunbeams.

And we say to you, Elianne, the Dark One, Our blades are sharp, and sworn to you! Let blood flow in your name! Excerpt from a manuscript called the Killers' Prayer.

One part was ruled by Tolki the Lightbringer, the other by his sons, the Northern Winds, who traveled the expanse of the heavens under a shining sail woven for them by Braetila Tolki then also did own a bow, one made for him by the heavenly master Aori And Velent saw the power of the bow of Tolki, her father the Lightbringer, and she was secretly envious of that power.
Then Velent did persuade to her sister Amate And Velent took her father's bow and uttered a secret word, and the bow became her servant And she slew her father, and also did defeat her brothers.
And the lightbringing crown of Tolki did fall from his head, and roll across the heavens, where it did approach the world of men and become enflamed. But Amate seized the crown and said the Word, and placed it on her head, and thus did become the master of the Day. Velent could not hold the shining sail of the heavenly gavran, and where Velent was, there was darkness.

It is a cold, icy world, isolating the fiery Risterverden from the other worlds. In the Godmassacre, Terskel blew a great alarm on his horn Rivelim, signaling Aori to smash the silver brace of the heavenly sphere. Terskel's other arm, severed by the Ereborns, still grasps the bellowing horn Rivelim and ever floats throughout space, circling the world of humanity.

Chapter 1 - MADAM CROWL'S GHOST
The maiden of death. Her world, Smertverden, lies between the world of men, Sparksvaard, and the world of the Sleeper, Risterverden. The Slavards are certain that all who die of old age and all who lose their sword or shame themselves on the field of battle are sent to the place of Jodenande. But true warriors — godlike heroes inflamed with fury who give their lives in battle — fly through the world of Iceeyed, blazing holes through her ensnaring bedsheets. Beyond lies the Sleeper's Forge, and then his Hammer and his Anvil, awaiting all true heroes.
For the Sleeping God is forging the souls of the dead into a great blade of Vengeance. But not all who pass beyond Jodenande are worthy of this, and so not all make it through the Forge. She regularly manifests herself in the world of humans, summoning to herself three of the Twelve Nameless Ice Knezi — three of which keep vigil on the walls of Terskellen, and nine of which guard the breach in the heavenly dome.
She summons them, for she knows their names, and this means she has authority over them. When she does this, winter comes to Sparksvaard. It is believed that if Jode calls all of the Ice Princes at once, eternal winter and the kingdom of death shall dawn in the world of humans.

The messenger of death who personally comes to collect the Sparks of the dead. She spends nearly all her time in the human world.
Sometimes she appears to mortals to make deals with them: their Spark in exchange for some mortal desire. For mortal desires often lead to even more Sparks, to Jomfru's great advantage. Sometimes, though, she will offer her aid without explanation. People often confuse Jodenande and Jomfrutotte — indeed, as far as humans are concerned, there is no special difference between them, but the elder feeds on human Sparks, and the younger feeds on pain and on the desire to survive that grips each mortal who comes to death's door.
