Tyr, Norse God of Victory, is a discreet but powerful Aesir. He is one of the oldest Gods of the pantheon and a somewhat enigmatic figure.

He is the God concerned with the formalities of war—especially treaties—and also, appropriately, of justice. He is the guarantor of contracts, guardian of oaths. His word is his bond and a guarantee of good faith : he placed his hand between the jaws of the monstrous wolf Fenrir while the Gods, pretending sport but intending a trap, bound the beast with an innocent looking bond forged by dwarves. Of course, when the Avatar realized the trick, he bit off Tyr's hand. No healing spell or mechanical hand seems to fix the constantly inflamed wound.
As a God of War, Tyr is not as strong as Thor or as cunning as Odin. However, his unyielding principles and sense of honor and sacrifice have rallied many behind the Aesir and the Gods in general. He is a an adamant general and enforcer and is the tactical mind of the Norse. Just like Ares, he has a link to the planet Mars and gave his name to the english "Tuesday".

Recently, Tyr has been one of the most trusted commander in the war against the Titans. Allying himself with Indra or Huitzilopochtli, his vikings strike hard and his eyes detect doubts and moles without fail. He sends raiding expeditions to righteously conquer and acquire the raw materials needed for War, especially in the Otherworlds or even Titanrealms. He is not an agressive God, but he is pragmatic. And a bunch of naive fairies or beastly troglodytes will not use their considerable resources with enough efficiency to save the World from the Titans. The Aesir have a shot…

Tyr is on good terms with many conservative Gods, particularly Horus Gao Yao. He has a noticeable political weight because he is honest and trustworthy : people and Gods always respect his decision. Though sometimes a bit rigid in his ways, Tyr is a great ally to the cause of the Gods. He is sometimes hired by other pantheons to oversee oaths and decrees. He has a keen analytical legal mind which helps him both in military strategy and diplomacy.

Him and his Godborns enjoy roles in the World when they are on the right side of things : the side of the law. As a business lawyer who never crosses a line, an incorruptible cop facing the mafia or the head of a military tribunal, Tyr and his progeny are leaders who are dedicated, observant and conscientious. They hold their convictions dear, even if it makes them unpopular and never lie : they promote cohesion, harmony and justice with fierce determination and a sense of honor and sacrifice that is unmatched.
