Uglitha was asked by Loki to capture Balder while Malekith took his place.[1] She used her magic to transform herself into an old lady and approached Balder while he was riding one day. She told him that there were maidens trapped in a castle guarded by a troll. In reality, these were actually her husband and daughters. After Balder killed Slaggnbir, her daughters cast a spell on him and made him their servant. When Thor was looking for Balder, he found Uglitha who again told him to go to the castle.[2] There, Thor would be attacked by a masked knight who turned out to be Balder. When he freed Balder and killed the three Troll Hags, they confronted Uglitha outside the castle. She pretended that killing them and restored her to her former beauty as she shape shifted to a younger woman. While Thor believed it, Balder saw past this illusion and made her reveal her true monstrous form. Together, they battled Uglitha, but unable to defeat her, Thor destroyed the castle, which was already weakened from fighting the Troll Hags. This resulted in her being crushed when the castle collapsed on top of her.[3]
