Audumla was one of the first creatures in existence, appearing second after Ymir.[3] She was allegedly conceived from Ymir's melting,[2] but possibly was Gaea in one of her many guises.[4]

For ages, they wandered on Niffleheim. Ymir was nourished on her milk,[3] while herself found her sustenance in licking the endless ice.[2]

She eventually found Buri, and either freed him from the ice by licking it[2] (according to the legend)[4] or watched him free himself.[3]
