HOD
Also known as HODUR

Son of [ODIN], he's the blind God of Darkness and Winter.

He's also BALDUR's twin brother. Most twin Gods come in goodie-baddie editions, and as he killed his beautiful brother you'd be forgiven for thinking that HOD was a nasty sort. But actually he was tricked into it by LOKI. Read all about it in BALDUR's entry.

The Gods were most upset, and HOD was killed by VALI in revenge. That might seem unfair, but then he shouldn't have been chucking mistletoe about, should he?

We are often asked about merchandise. Can we supply the latest Hod graphic novel, book or comic? Not to mention role-playing games (RPG), video games, Hod movies on DVD, BluRay and so on. To purchase such goodies we suggest you search for a dedicated mythology-based online store - or try Amazon, Ebay or other reputable websites. We offer a wide range of our own merchandise in our online GodShop, but we don't currently sell third party items. Yet!

Visitors often email us asking about Hod statues, sculptures or carved figurines of Hod. We regret we cannot assist with identifying such items.
