Hrinmeer was born to the Light Elf Aeltri, after she had been raped by the Fire Demon Skulveig. Skulveig found Hrinmeer's appearance disgusting, and forced him to wear at all times a mask to hide his features. Hrinmeer's childhood was lonely, and he was put down upon by other children. Finally grown to an adult, he became a ferocious warrior, and took up Skulveig's sword, calling himself "The Flame."
After slaying Skulveig, the Flame rode into Asgard and began massacring entire villages. This caught the attention of Odin, who dispatched Thor to defeat the Flame before more lives were lost.
