The Norse gods and goddesses, also known as the Æsir are the principal pantheon in Norse religion. They include Odin, Frigg, Thor, Baldr, Höðr and Týr. The second Norse pantheon was the Vanir, which included Freyja, Freyr and Njörðr.

In Norse mythology, the two pantheons waged war against each other, resulting in a unified pantheon representing law and order. They resided in the realm of Asgard, the beautiful and fortified home of the gods located in the sky. They are the archenemies of the monstrous creatures known as, the Giants.

After the battle of Ragnarök, the gods were thought to have died out, but they have re-emerged (slowly returned to life one by one), reincarnated as mortals. They include: Wotan Wagner (Odin), Magne Seier (Thor), Harry (Týr), Iman Reza (Freyja), and Laurits Seier (Loki).

Biography[]

In mythology[]

The interaction between the Æsir and the Vanir has provoked an amount of scholarly theory and speculation. While other cultures have had "elder" and "younger" families of gods, as with the Titans versus the Olympians of ancient Greece, the Æsir and Vanir were portrayed as contemporaries. The two clans of gods fought battles, concluded treaties, and exchanged hostages (Freyr and Freyja are mentioned as hostages).

An áss like Ullr is almost unknown in the myths, but his name is seen in a lot of geographical names, especially in Sweden, and may also appear on the 3rd century Thorsberg chape, suggesting that his cult was widespread in prehistoric times.

The names of the first three Æsir in Norse mythology, Vili, Vé and Odin all refer to spiritual or mental state, vili to conscious will or desire, to the sacred or numinous and óðr to the manic or ecstatic.

Æsir and Vanir[]

A second clan of gods, the Vanir, is also mentioned in Norse mythology: the god Njörðr and his children, Freyr and Freyja, are the most prominent Vanir gods who join the Æsir as hostages after a war between Æsir and Vanir. The Vanir appear to have mainly been connected with cultivation and fertility and the Æsir were connected with power and war.

In the Eddas, however, the word Æsir is used for gods in general, while Asynjur is used for the goddesses in general. For example, in the poem Skírnismál, Freyr was called "Prince of the Æsir". In the Prose Edda, Njörðr was introduced as "the third among the Æsir", and among the Asynjur, Freya is always listed second only to Frigg.

In surviving tales, the origins of many of the Æsir are unexplained. Originally, there are just three: Odin and his brothers Vili and Vé. Odin's sons by giantesses are naturally counted as Æsir. Heimdallr and Ullr's connection with the Æsir is not clearly mentioned. Loki is a jötunn, and Njörðr is a Vanir hostage, but they are often ranked among the Æsir.

The conflict with the Giants[]

The Norse gods represented law and order, and the giants chaos. The Viking world was simple, gods killing giants was not seen as evil, but rather a necessity to keep the world in balance.

The war of Ragnarök[]

TBA

In the series[]

After Ragnarök, the gods were believed to have all died out, but they were slowly returning to life (and still are), reincarnated as mortals. The first of the gods to be brought back to life was Thor, reincarnated into the life of Magne Seier. Then as the series went on, other gods and goddesses, one by one, have re-emerged back to life, such as, Odin, Freyja, Týr and Loki.

Like their previous lives, the reincarnated gods and goddesses believe in bringing law and order into the world, and are willing to fight and die for their cause.

In the first episode of season 2, Magne is challenged by Vidar to a battle by the new moon. Magne accepts, and he is joined by more reincarnated gods, Wotan, Iman and Harry.

Unlike Magne, the other reincarnated gods are unknown to the giants and below their radar, until episode 6 of season 2, when the gods broke into Jutul Industries to forge Magne's hammer, Mjölnir.

Gods[]

Name Image Description
Odin Odin.jpg The supreme deity of Norse mythology and the greatest among the Norse gods was the Allfather Odin, King of the Æsir. He was the awe-inspiring ruler of Asgard, and most revered immortal, who was on an unrelenting quest for knowledge with his two ravens, two wolves and the Valkyries. He was the god of wisdom, the god of war and, being delightfully paradoxical, the god of poetry and magic. He was famous for sacrificing one of his eyes in order to be able to see the cosmos more clearly and his thirst for wisdom saw him hang from the World Tree, Yggdrasil, for nine days and nine nights until he was blessed with the knowledge of the runic alphabet. His unyielding nature granted him the opportunity to unlock numerous mysteries of the universe. He is reincarnated as the man, Wotan Wagner.
Frigg Frigg.jpg Odin’s wife, Frigg, was a paragon of beauty, love, fertility and fate. She was the mighty queen of Asgard, a venerable Norse goddess, who was gifted with the power of divination, and yet, was surrounded by an air of secrecy. She was the only goddess allowed to sit next to her husband. Frigg was a very protective mother, so she took an oath from the elements, beasts, weapons and poisons, that they would not injure her brilliant and loving son, Baldr. Her trust was betrayed by Loki, a most deceitful god.
Thor Thor by Johannes Gehrts.jpg Thor was Odin’s most widely-known son. He was the protector of humanity and the powerful god of thunder and lightning who wielded a hammer named Mjölnir. One of the mightiest gods in Norse mythology, Thor commanded the weather and the forces of nature, fought the enemies of civilization and represented law and order. Among the Norse gods, he was known for his bravery, strength, healing powers and righteousness. He is reincarnated as the boy, Magne Seier.
Baldr Baldr.jpg Frigg and Odin are the parents of Baldr, who was described as living between heaven and earth. Baldr was the epitome of radiance, beauty, kindness and fairness. He was believed to be immortal, but he was killed with mistletoe – the golden bough that contained both his life and his death.
Váli Váli.jpg Váli was the son of Odin who avenged Baldr’s death by killing Höðr, the god who pierced Baldr with mistletoe. He was basically the god of vengeance.
Loki Loke by C. E. Doepler.jpg Loki was a mischievous god who could shape-shift and can take up animalistic forms. Perceived as one of the gods, but originated from giant blood. In old myth, seen as a demonic creature: unsteady, unreliable, teasing and ambiguous. Foster brother to Odin. "Father" to the Midgard Serpent. He is reincarnated as the boy, Laurits Seier.
Höðr Loki and Höðr.jpg Höðr was the blind god of winter and darkness.
Týr Týr.jpg Týr was the god of war and justice. Famed for his strength and great courage. Lost his right hand when he sacrificed himself in battle. He is reincarnated as the boy, Harry.
Bragi Bragi by C. E. Doepler.jpg Bragi was the god of poetry.
Sif Sif.jpg Sif was the goddess of the earth, and the wife of Thor.
Ullr Uller by W. Heine.jpg Ullr was the god of the hunt.
Njörðr AM 738 4to, 36r, BW Njörðr.jpeg Njörðr was the god of the sea.
Freyja Freyja.jpg Freyja was one of the most sensual and passionate goddesses in Norse mythology. She was associated with much of the same qualities as Frigg: love, fertility and beauty. She was the sister of Freyr. She is reincarnated as the girl, Iman Reza.
Freyr Freyr.jpg Freyr was the god of fertility and one of the most respected gods for the Vanir clan. Freyr was a symbol of prosperity and pleasant weather conditions. He was frequently portrayed with a large phallus.
Heimdallr Heimdallr.jpg Heimdallr, known as the ‘shiniest’ of all gods due to him having the ‘whitest skin’, was a son of Odin who sat atop the Bifrost (the rainbow bridge that connects Asgard, the world of the Æsir tribe of gods, with Midgard, the world of humanity) and remained forever on alert; guarding Asgard against attack.
Hel Hel.jpg Hel was the goddess and ruler of the Norse underworld of the same name (also known as Helheim). She had pale skin and appeared to be death-like. She nurtured and housed any who enter her realm.
Víðarr Víðarr.jpg Víðarr was another son of the supreme god and Grid (a giantess), and his powers were matched only by that of Thor.
Rán Rán and the Wave Girls (1831).jpg Rán was a goddess seen as the personification of the dark side of the sea, queen of the ocean floor where the drowned people go. Her husband, the giant and friend of the Æsir gods, personified the good part of the sea.

Personalities[]

The Norse gods have always represented law and order, and believed in peace and balance. For them, the killing of giants was not an evil act, but rather a necessity to keep the world in balance so that it would not fall into chaos. And they truly believe in protecting humans from all dangers. They fight evil at any cost.

  • Thor: Thor has a strong belief in justice and a great sense of righteousness. He also has a strong sense of bravery. He is willing to save and protect anyone who is in danger. He is willing to face any foe in battle.
    • Magne Seier: Magne is polite, quiet and a good boy. He is also straightforward and doesn't keep secrets. This is revealed when he casually reveals his love for Gry Isungset in front of his peers in Episode 4. He believes in what is right and just.
    • Iman Reza: Iman has a very eccentric personality and sometimes it seems like her mind wanders about other stuff. She is very crackwise, tells jokes and has a rather carefree personality. Iman seems to care more about the fact that she can get free stuff with her compelling voice than fighting the giants. But she is a good person, and cares a great deal about her friends and loved ones.
    • Laurits Seier: Laurits is a troublemaker and a deadpan snarker, and is called an Emo by the other kids; he is not overly prone to Wangst. He is usually open to voice his negative opinions, for example, expressing his view on Turid and Erik's relationship to the two of them. He isn't bothered by possible consequences since he usually doesn't take responsibility for his actions. Watching events turning out in a considerably bad way amuses him. Laurits has a conflicting personality, with a mixture of revolt since his father died and a desire to assert himself. He loves Magne, but he doesn't miss the opportunity to screw with his brother if that's funny. Despite being problematic, enjoying and teasing others, Laurits demonstrates a sense of justice and uses his skills to defend his brother.

Thor/Magne[]

Thor is usually seen wielding a giant hammer known as Mjölnir, the world's most powerful weapon. It can cast lightning, and only those with the greatest strength could pick it up. It has the ability to level mountains. Thor used the hammer to defeat the giants. When Thor threw the hammer, it always returned to his hand.

Magne Seier (Thor's reincarnation) now wields the mighty hammer, and he uses it to both help him control his powers and to give him and the other gods a chance in the war to come.
