Extensive Definition

This article is about a figure from Norse Mythology. For the act of miming, see mime or pantomime.
In Norse mythology, Miming was a forest-dwelling troll, the son of Hothbrod and foster son of Gevar. In a Teutonic version of the myth of the death of Balder, Miming's sword is the weapon that Hodur uses to slay Balder; here, Hodur is not blind but is instead a physically potent figure. Miming's sword was said to have been forged by Weyland, the god of smithing, for his son Heime.
