Tyr was an Isu later associated as the Norse god of war, justice, diplomacy, and peace who sacrificed his arm to help Odin conquer and bind Fenrir.

Names

In addition to being known as Tyr, he was also called Tíw by the Anglo-Saxon pagans along with the title of justice-bringer.[1]

Biography

Formerly the Æsirian War Lord, Tyr lost this position when Odin defeated him in a battle of martial skills. Fairly conceding defeat, Tyr accepted his new role as a loyal lieutenant to Odin. The All-Father rewarded his trust with making Tyr his confidant and chief lawgiver.[2]

As the Great Catastrophe approached, Tyr and the other eight Norse Isu uploaded their DNA data into Yggdrasil to be later redistributed into the human gene pool.[3] Millennia later in 842 CE, Tyr was successfully reincarnated as Sigurd Styrbjornson.[4]

Legacy and influence

Familiar with the legend, Grace Collins warned Owen Meyers over approaching the Dog archetype within their shared Animus session at the Aerie around 2016.[5]

Personality and characteristics

While Tyr prided himself on his unchallenged reputation as a fair and even-handed judge, he occasionally expressed an intense distrust of the Vanir over reasons he refused to fully disclose.[2]

Behind the scenes

Tyr is a Norse god and a character appearing in Assassin's Creed: Valhalla. He is voiced by the Icelandic actor Gudmundur Thorvaldsson, who also voiced his reincarnation Sigurd.[6]
