Quote1 The Fates delight in dissembling--pay their prophecies no heed! Quote2
-- Hela

The three Norns Skuld, Urd, and Verdandi were the overseers of the fates of the people of the Nine Worlds. They made their lair in the roots of Yggdrasill, the World Tree. The Asgardian Thor, Valkyrie, Balder, and many others consulted the Norn's wisdom over the centuries.[3]

Thor once consulted the Norns to learn how he could wield the mighty weapon of Mjolnir. The Norn told Thor that he must face 'Death' before he could wield such a powerful weapon. It was revealed this meant the Death-goddess Hela[3].

The Fates/Norns met with Brunnhilde, who had just arrived at Asgard. They led her to the Well of Mimir and revealed to her visions of an upcoming future. The visions involved Hela at war with a rival, civil war in Valhalla, death decimating mankind and claiming Valkyrie's fellow Defenders, and Valkyrie herself banished to Niffleheim. The Norns claimed that this future could not be prevented. [2]

During the events known as the Siege of Asgard, the Norns confronted the Dark Avenger Daken with a request for him to bring about Ragnarök.[4]
