Origins and Ancient Times
A beautiful goddess, Sedna spurned all those who sought her hand in marriage, until an humanoid avian in disguise enthralled her with her son, promising her in songs a luxurious life in his kingdom across the sea. Arriving there, Sedna discovered nature of her suitor and of his squalor.
Sedna's father Hodiak eventually answered his daughter's desperate pleas for help and killed the captor/suitor. Facing the avenging humanoid avian's countrymen, Hodiak fled.
Angered, Sedna attacked him, and he cursed her, banishing her to the northern seas' icy depths. There she began a lonely existence as the goddess of the dead.
In the more recent years, while wandering the North Atlantic, Sedna discovered a war ship lost by the Asgardian Gods. It impressed her, so she used its ruby gems to guide her to Thor as she wished to make Thor her mate, because she was lonely and wanted to marry a big, strong thunder god. During a brief clash with her own dragon, Thor accidentally reverted to his then mortal guise of 'Jake Olson' when it swallowed his hammer. It was rescued by Namor the Sub-Mariner who was unaware that Olson was in fact the thunder god. This distraction gave Thor enough time to recover his hammer and even help Namor force Sedna into retreat.
