Norse Poetry God

Also known as BRAGE

Eloquent God of Poetry

Long white beard. Lives in sky. Specialist subject: Poetry. He has rhyming runes carved into his tongue. Now that’s body piercing.

If you ever need inspiration, ask for a sip of his mead of poetry. It all comes from GUNNLOD and the brew of KVASIR.

He was originally a 9th century mortal named Bragi Boddason, a renowned Skald (court poet) who seems to have been elevated to godly status by his fellow artists. Now that’s poetic license for you.
