JAFNHAR

Norse Knowledge God

Also known as Jafnharr, Jafnhárr, Jafenhar

A strange sage who is always high

He is a member of the MYSTERIOUS-THREE trio of peculiar sages.

He sits next to HAR (‘high’) and his name means ‘equally high’. Which shows that he’s just as good if not better. According to legend he is a manifestation of ODIN, but he is still a complete mystery to us.
