SKIRNIR

Norse Multi-talented God

Freyr's wonderful manservant

Or should that be godservant? Anyway, this splendid fellow performed a never-ending series of delicate duties and earned the infinite gratitude of his master.

Acting as a romantic intermediary, he managed to persuade the reluctant GERD that FREYR was the man she really needed — by telling her all about his master’s enormous sword.

Once the nuptials were confirmed, the delighted FREYR rewarded this veritable Jeeves of a servant with a Godly horse and his magic sword. (However, when RAGNAROK comes, FREYR will be cursing his generosity as the magic sword is the only thing capable of saving his life.)

SKIRNIR also sorted out a little matter for ODIN involving a magical restraint for the terrible wolf FENRIR.
