Thor was one of the most popular and influential of all ancient Norse gods. He was an excellent warrior, but his role as a god of war extended far beyond his martial prowess.
Thor was the god of war. He loved bloodshed and battle and carried it to the extreme. He was extremely angry and demanding of those under his charge. He detested being separated from the fighting.
If you questioned him about his devotion to the “War God,” he would quickly direct you to Hel. She was his sister, and she served as his consort and a lover. In return, he promised to return the favor to her when he died. There is no doubt that Thor was deeply in love with his sister.
In order to prove to her that he was indeed the god of war, she sought to make Thor her chief god. After her success, he did the same for all of the other gods of Asgard.
The great warrior had many powers, including the ability to turn himself into the most durable metal. He was also a superb singer, known for his poems. The poems were often hilarious and engaging. His poems covered all aspects of war and warfare.
It is said that Thor was not only the warrior god, but also the guardian god. This job fell to him when Loki, the trickster god, stole the power of Midgard and the truth of his brother’s. Loki had called Thor’s sword Svipnud to aid him in stealing the mighty hammer. Thor killed the trickster and turned back to his full deity nature.
This is the hardest god to pin down as a divine personality. He was a caring god, but his role was more than merely keeping his people safe. He was also the god of war and of poetry.
He was also a king, not as the son of Odin, but as a King in his own right, and he also had bodyguards to keep him safe. He will always be more than just a warrior god.
