Rjúfendr (Fire Giants) are the children of Surtr who live in Muspellheim.

Unlike the Jötun, Fire Giants are strengthened by the sun and weakened without it’s light. (The sun is made from the fires of Muspellheim). At night, the stars (also fire) give some strength to the Giants, enough to keep them alive, but they often make massive bonfires around their camps which last until dawn.
