Thor, the Norse God of Thunder and War, is one of the most prominent figures in the Aesir, loved by his peers, even in other pantheons, and feared by his enemies.

The Warrior God par excellence, Thor is the archetype of a loyal and honorable warrior, the ideal toward which the average human warrior aspired. He’s the indefatigable defender of the Aesir Gods and their fortress, Asgard, from the encroachments of the Titans.
No one is better suited for this task than Thor. His courage and sense of duty are unshakeable, and his physical strength is virtually unmatched. He even owns an unnamed belt of strength that makes his power doubly formidable when he wears the belt.

His most famous possession, however, is his hammer, Mjöllnir. Only rarely does he go anywhere without it. Thor’s hammer was certainly a weapon – the best weapon the Aesir (or even the Gods) have, in fact – but it is more than just a weapon. It also occupied a central role in rituals of consecration and hallowing. Indeed, he blessed his own marriage to Sif to his hammer, making their love true to Fate itself. As such, the famous weapon is not only the symbol of the destructive power of the storm, and of fire from heaven, but also a protection against the forces of evil, treachery and violence. When something or someone is consecrated with Thor’s hammer, it (or he or she) gains a blessing of Order that protects the bearer from corruption, misfortune and harm.
Mjöllnir was forged by dwarves in return for Thor saving them from the fiery Giants of Muspelheim. They gathered the raw materials from the body of an old titanspawn of Ouranos, from the time he was still the Avatar of Sky as the Expanse (before he was castrated by Kronus). They then forged the mystical hammer under the supervision of Odin, who carved his most powerful runes to contain the enormous amount of legend within the weapon.

Thor’s particular enemy is Jormungand (also known as Crom Cruach by the Tuatha Dé Danann), the enormous serpent who encircled Midgard, the world of human civilization. At one point during the Second Titanomachy, he tried to pull Jormungand out of the ocean while on a fishing trip, and was stopped only when his companion cut the fishing line out of fear. Thor and Crom Cruach are fated to finally face each other during Ragnarok, however, when the two will put an end to each other.

His activities on the divine plane are mirrored by his activities in the World, where he comes to those in need of protection, comfort, and the blessing and hallowing of places, things, and events. When he does visit the world, he never leaves his beloved wife Sif. A gentle giant, he loves her with all his heart of gold. However, with the war against the titans raging, the mighty Thor has a lot on his plate and can't be with his wife as much as he wants. Sometimes, he can't see her for months… And he's frustrated as he knows that her wild beauty has struck more than one God with a warmer and kinder hand than him… He does enjoy battle however, and he does his best to turn the tide of the war as fast as he can, so he can join his wife once again.

Thor is not subtle enough (nor enclined) to actually form any political plots or influence. However, with his best buds The Dagda, Herakles and Sun Wukong, they form the most martially powerful quatuor on the side of the Gods and have yet to be defeated. The four have a friendship that has been through many battles (and perhaps ten times as many beers) but don't meet as often as they like : all of them have their own responsibilities within their own pantheon (especially The Dagda, being High King of Ireland). However, this friendship is an important factor politically : for example, the Tuatha are not as rebellious to Odin's ruling as one might expect and the relations between the Theoi and the Aesir have greatly improve. Thor even collaborated with Zeus to kill the enraged Shango in an epic battle of Thunder and Lightning.

When he visits the world, Thor never leaves Sif. When he's the famous football quarterback, she is the head cheeleader. When she's the CEO of a agriculture cooperative, Thor is the loud, muscly farmer. Thor understands the need for his progeny to influence the world. However, both Sif and him despise being unfaithful to each other. So, when they do sire Godborn with a mortal, it is through the infusion of Legend in the womb rather than procreation (like Osiris or Hera). Thor's Godborn are loud, violent, fun and loveable. They accepted their fate at Ragnarok and want to enjoy their limited time doing the things they love the most : fighting bad guys, protecting the man/woman of your dreams and drink till you can't walk straight (which, considering their divine parentage, constitutes an incredible amount of alcohol).
