Tyr is the Norse and Germanic god of war and justice, who is featured as a side character within the Prose and Poetic Eddas.
Binding of Fenrir
He played an important role during the binding of the wolf Fenrir, one of the children of Loki and Angrboda. The gods feared that the wolf would become too big and become a thread to the world, so they decided to bind the beast. They asked the dwarves to make Gleipnir, a thin binding that is stronger than any chain. The gods told Fenrir that they would only test the binding on him, but the wolf was suspicious and asked for one of the gods to put one their hands in his mouth as collateral. Tyr was the only one god brave enough to agree to this and lost his hand in the wolfs jaws as the other gods trapped Fenrir.
During Ragnaok, the end of the world within Norse, he would battle the monstrous hound Garmr. Tyr manages to kill the hound, but also perishes himself, alongside most of the other Aesir-gods, such as Odin, Thor, Freyr, and Heimdallr.
- The Roman historian and politician Tacitus compared Tyr to their god Mars: Among the gods Mercury is the one they principally worship. They regard it as a religious duty to sacrifice to him, on fixed days, human as well as other sacrificial victims. Hercules and Mars they appease by animal offerings of the permitted kind. Part of the Suebi sacrifice to Isis as well.
