GERMANIC MYTHOLOGY

The Gods of central Europe and the Anglo-Saxons

SOWILO

Germanic Sun God

Also known as Sigel, Sunne, Sowilō, Sæwelō

The Sun

Germanic prototype of Norse SOL. The old rune of his name looks like a flash of light and in modern times was pinched by the Nazis for their SS logo. SOWILO denies all responsibility and implores all humans to play nicely.

GodNote: Sorry this Sowilo article is a bit short. We have sent our Data Dwarves off to find more nuggets of information. Stay tuned.
