Ásgarðr, often anglicized as Asgard, was an Isu realm located in what is now Scandinavia in Northern Europe. Led by Odin, it was home to the Æsir group of Isu who held dominion over the Northern European region.
Eons after the Great Catastrophe had come and passed, the city of Asgard became a crucial element of Norse paganism. The city was still revered by various Germanic tribes as well as some neopagans as the ethereal home of the Æsir-Vanir unified pantheon.
Asgard was the home of the Asgardian Isu as well as many humans from the Northern European regions. They were led by the Æsir, a group of powerful and highly capable Isu who were loyal to and most trusted by the Isu Odin, the ruler of Asgard. Members of the Æsir were not just from Asgard, but also hailed from other Isu realms such as Vanaheimr and Jötunheimr.
Asgard was also home the Æsir such as Odin, Freyja, Thor, Tyr, and Idun. It was also home to Loki while he was a member of the Æsir. It was also the nesting place of Odin's magical pet ravens Huginn and Muninn, who flew throughout the Nine Realms and reported on all happenings. Loki's children, including Fenrir, were banished from Asgard. Asgard was also in a war against the main faction of Isu called the Jötnar.
