VIDAR

Norse War God

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.
