HONIR
Also known as HOHNIR

God of Indecision and Avoidance. Or is he? No. Yes

We're not sure. You can never get a straight answer out of him.

The AESIR sent him as a knowledgeable and valuable hostage during their truce with the VANIR, but it soon became clear that he was cribbing his speeches from MIMIR. When MIMIR wasn't around, HONIR became a gibbering imbecile. The VANIR took their revenge by cutting MIMIR's head off and sending HONIR back with it.

Also known as the Silent One, sometimes he might not be there at all as he has very long legs and can vanish from sight very rapidly.

We are often asked about merchandise. Can we supply the latest Honir graphic novel, book or comic? Not to mention role-playing games (RPG), video games, Honir 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 Honir statues, sculptures or carved figurines of Honir. We regret we cannot assist with identifying such items.
