Sif was of unknown parentage, but she did end up as Thor’s wife. There aren’t many tales associated with her. She was renowned for her beautiful golden hair, and one night, Loki snuck into her room and cut it all off. After Thor threatened to kill Loki, Loki went to the dwarves and had them fashion a golden wig which became her most well-known accessory.

While not much is known about Sif beyond her hair, there were some accusations that she was unfaithful with Loki, which would explain how he was able to get close enough to cut her hair off in the first place. She also gave birth to a son named Ullr, but the father was not listed as Thor. This gives credence to the speculation that she may have had an affair with Loki or another god.
