Hel is not death nor any evil being; she neither kills nor torments. She takes the souls of the departed and holds them with an inexorable grip. She is the hard reality which lies at the end of all things.
Hel's body is said to be two halves that shouldn't be together but are. One side of her is incredibly beautiful and any man instantly will fall in lust with her. While the other side of her is dead and rotting, maggots and other foul things infest the dead side of her and all creatures are repulsed by it. Women are merely grossed out at the sight, while men's minds are eventually ripped in two.
She has a habit to have sex with the men she encounters, and then proceeds to torture them to death. She is considered by many to be the ultimate Sadist. The path into nifleheim is paved with human skulls.
