FREYR

Norse Peace God

Also known as Frey, Yngvi, Yngvi-Freyr, Fricco

Popular God of Peace, Prosperity and Plenty

The son of Njord, and Freya’s twin brother, he’s in charge of Sun, Rain, Harvests, Peace and Prosperity. Very popular and very handsome.

Freyr’s got a wonderful sword and he loves to flaunt it — he’s always present and erect. If you’re having marital problems of a physical nature, a prayer to him should sort you out.

He’s married to the Giantess Gerd, thanks to his resourceful servant Skirnir. He also has an amazing magic ship that always sails in the right direction. It never sinks, but it does shrink. Freyr keeps it in his pocket.
