Saga was the goddess of history. She belonged to the race of gods called the Aesir. Her role was to transcribe and keep close records of all worldly occurences.

Saga resides in a large hall in Asgard called Sokkvabek, that is located underneath a babbling river. Here, the walls on all four sides ripple with intoxicating waters (mead). Saga drinks daily with Odin from these waters out of golden goblets. At one time she was Odin's bride.

In the Poetic Edda Saga is another name for the goddess Frigg. The Edda also notes that the word Saga is connected to the Nordic word for story.
