|“||I can draw out causes of death from the residual information of the dead, store them in existing weapons, and swap out the causes of death. I can strangle you with a sword, drown you with a train, crush you with a blowtorch, and burn you with a handgun. That is a suitable reason to bear the name of Hel, the queen of Niflheimr who rules over the dead.||„|
Hel is a member of Gremlin, named after the daughter of Loki and ruler of Niflheimr, the land of the dead who did not have a notable or heroic death. She was deployed in the ocean near Saipan to attack a convoy of ships en route to Tokyo while Gremlin started the final preparations on the forge of Gungnir, but her attack was stopped by Silvia and Brunhild Eiktobel.

Manipulation of causes of death: Hel's magic is based on the manipulation of causes of death. First, she draws the causes of death in the surrounding area (Shown to be over 100 kilometers). These causes of death can number in the tens of thousands, and appear as small candle-like flames that float in the air. Hel can analyze these causes of death to acquire information about the deceased such as their name, age and the circumstances surrounding their demise. Hel can store causes of deaths on weapons and items and use them to kill an enemy, with the effects of the original death being multiplied several times over.
- Death by Freezing: By throwing a small kitchen knife into the ocean, Hel was capable of freezing it into a thick layer of ice in an area over 100 kilometers long. While not outright said to have been caused by Hel's "cause of death" magic, it can be assumed since she used a weapon to freeze the water.
- Death by Burning: Hel stored the cause of death of a man who was murdered by having his head stuck in an oven in a revolver. Then she shot a military ship with the revolver, and the ship was immediately enveloped in crimson flames, heating all over as if it was stuck in an oven.
