Audumla was one of the first creatures in existence, appearing second after Ymir.[4] She was allegedly conceived from Ymir's melting,[3] but possibly was Gaea in one of her many guises.[5]

For ages, they wandered on Niffleheim. Ymir was nourished on her milk,[4] while herself found her sustenance in licking the endless ice.[3]

She eventually found Buri, and either freed him from the ice by licking it[3] (according to the legend)[5] or watched him free himself.[4]
