Norse Sea God

God of the Sea

As with all Sea Gods, he is worshipped and feared by sailors.

It always pays to respect watery Gods, especially AEGIR as he has a fondness for dragging ships and men down to his halls. But as he is well-known for his wonderful parties, it could just be his way of avoiding gate-crashers.

His is married to Sea Goddess RAN, and sea froth is caused by his Underwater Brewery. See also HYMIR.
