Defender of the Innocent: Thor
Thor is a God who loves a boisterous party. Thor's mansion on Asgard was known as Thruthvanger, the Paddocks of Power, where his castle hall Bilskirnir or Lightning stood. His great hall of over 500 rooms and often hosts large rowdy feasts and gatherings. Feasts consisted of an overabundance of food and drink, and much wrestling, stories and songs.
Thor was an extremely popular God during per-Christian times. The day of the week, Thursday is named after him (Thor’s day) and many areas in his home country are named in tribute to him. He was a God of the people and one that many defiantly would not give up when Christianity came in.
The stories of Thor’s battles are numerous as he has ever been the champion for good. It is said when Ragnarok comes, Thor will fight his last battle defending the world. He will defeat the Midgard serpent, Jormungard, yet sadly die after the battle from its poison. His two sons will survive Ragnarok to carry on his good work.
