Norse Mythology

The Mighty Gods of the Vikings...


Norse God

Also known as Hod, Hodur, Höðr

The blind God of Darkness

Another son of Odin, he’s also Balder’s brother. Most brotherly double deities come in goodie-baddie editions, and as he killed his beautiful brother you’d be forgiven for thinking that Hoder was a nasty sort. But actually he was tricked into it by Loki. Read all about it in Balder’s entry.

The Gods were most upset, and Hoder was killed by Vali in revenge. That might seem unfair, but then he shouldn’t have been chucking mistletoe about, should he?
