The Norns in Norse mythology are Goddesses who rule the destiny of Gods and men. The Norns spin the threads of fate at the foot of Yggdrasil, the tree of the world. Whereas the origin of the name norn is uncertain, it may derive from a word meaning "to twine" and which would refer to their twining the thread of fate.
Eldritch - eerie; weird; spooky. Origin: Eldritch is of uncertain origin, but the earlier elrich is equivalent to the Old English el- meaning "foreign, strange, uncanny" and rīce meaning "kingdom"; hence “of a strange country, pertaining to the Otherworld.”
