Freyr, sometimes anglicized as Frey, was an Isu later immortalized as a god in Norse mythology associated with sacral kingship, virility, peace and prosperity, with sunshine and fair weather, and with good harvest. He was the son of Njörðr and twin brother of Freyja. He was regarded as the legendary antecedent of the Svear succession of kings.
As the Great Catastrophe approached, Freyr and the other eight Norse Isu uploaded their DNA data into Yggdrasil to be later redistributed into the human gene pool. Millennia later, Freyr was successfully reincarnated as Harald Fairhair.
Legacy and influence
Freyr had a totem named after him in the popular dice game Orlog, played in the 9th century. The piece "Freyr's Gift" would earn players additional icons of whichever die face was in majority. An Anglo-Saxon man in Lunden, Wessex possessed the piece, which he gave to the Viking shieldmaiden Eivor Varinsdottir of the Raven Clan after being defeated.
