VIDAR

God of Silence and Revenge.

If you want to put the boot in, VIDAR is the God for you. He has an enormous iron shoe with which he can trample anything to death. Just what you'd expect with ODIN as a father and GRID as a mother. To complete the Happy Family his brother is THOR.

He is known as VIDAR the Valiant and VIDAR the Redeemer as it is his duty to kill FENRIR the Wolf after it has chewed up his father. This may have already happened as there is some confusion as to whether RAGNAROK has been and gone or is still to come. Being the strong silent type, VIDAR hasn't said.

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