VANIR

Norse Nature Deity

Rough and ready rustic rivals to the Aesir Gods

Rival Gods to the AESIR. They were mostly wild and rough Nature Gods and detested the more noble Warrior Gods, who included ODIN, THOR, et al.

But after a number of battles and betrayals, the two sides were reconciled. The VANIR now live next door to the AESIR in VANAHEIM.
