The beginning of life was fire and ice, with the existence of only two of the later 9 realms, the two that existed were Muspelheim and Niflheim. When the two collide, the Jotunn Ymir and the icy cow Audhumla were created. The Jotun, or Frost Giants were formed from Ymir's body.But when the heat of Muspelheim hit Ymir another creature was created, Surtr, who was a Jotun of fire rather than ice.

 

Bor was then created and he was the father of three gods, Odin, Vili and Ve. These Gods decided that they were strong enough and killed Ymir. Ymir's blood flooded the world, drowning all the Jotun except two, but the number would soon grow again. The Gods then created seven more worlds using Ymir's flesh for dirt, his blood for the oceans, his bones for stones, his brains for clouds and his skull for heaven.

 

Askr and Embla, the first man and first woman, respectively, parents of the human race if you would. They were created from tree trunks found on the seashore by the same three gods that killed Ymir.Odin gave them breath, or life, Vili gave them understanding, and Ve gave them their senses and outward appearance, they were then given Midgard to live on.
