Freyr (sometimes referred to as Yngvi-Freyr) is the God of Kingship, Virility, Prosperity, Fair Weather and Fertility in general. His role in providing health and abundance was often symbolized by his mount, the boar Gullinborsti (“Golden-Bristled”), and by its enormous attribute.

Freyr is said to bestow peace and pleasure on mortals. He was once the leader of the Vanir tribe of deities. At the end of the Second Titanomachy, Freyr and his sister Freya joined the Aesir after the catastrophic losses their people had suffered. It is said however that, although tactical and reasonable, this submission to Odin's rule was never fully accepted by the Vanir leader. Although he denies, some say he would make a fairer and kinder leader than the manipulative Odin and he does have a lot of influence in the pantheon. He does not act on it however to question Odin's rule, or at least not openly.

Freyr’s residence is Alfheim, in the Summer Court of Fairie, the homeland of the elves. He does not rule it however, mainly staying there to avoid the direct watchful eye of Odin. Another one of Freyr’s signature possessions is his ship, Skíðblaðnir, which always has a favorable wind and can be folded up and carried in a small bag.

Freyr is a powerful God, with a football linebacker's build and hands marked by manual labor. Although he is rarely directly in the spotlight, few can resist the rural appeal that radiates from him whenever he is in the room. He has a kind of a gentleman farmer look that appeals to many, and he enjoys proving his ability to fully satisfy anyone, both with food, coin or sex. He is very good friends with Hors, Shennong and Rongo, and they have long and elaborate discussions about agriculture and abundance. During the Second Titanomachy, he created a powerful self-wielding sword, but abandoned it to an Enlightened named Skírnir in order to marry his wife Geror (who despises weapons). However, separating himself from this legendary sword, sealed his Fate : during Ragnarok, Freyr is bound to be killed by the giant Surtr. The trace of this magical sword which fights on its own "if wise be he who wields it" has been lost today, despite Odin's best efforts to find it in order to prevent Ragnarok. Rumor has it last seen in the ruins of Atlantis after its destruction by Sul'Tharash.

The most powerfully fertile of the Norse fertility Gods, the Vanir, Freyr has power over both plants and mortal lives. Brown-haired with large shoulders, he has power to control the weather, and he is capable of increasing someone's wealth and prosperity without limits. When he visits the World, he usually sires many Godborn, as his fertility is without limit. As an adult film movie star, a sexy agricultural magnate, a noble from a distant land or the drummer of a hard rock band, Freyr always has opportunity to make a great deal of money and satisfy a great deal of women. His Godborns are just as enriched and blessed with abundance and potency. However, they enjoy life in the World so much that they are sometimes a bit detached from the cause of the Gods, where their power could be of a great help.
