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.
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. Millennia later in 842 CE, Tyr was successfully reincarnated as Sigurd Styrbjornson.
Legacy and influence
Tyr had a totem named after him in the popular dice game Orlog, played in the 9th century. The piece "Tyr's Pledge" would allow players to sacrifice a number of health tokens in order to destroy an opponent's God Favor. An Anglo-Saxon woman in Fearnhamme, Hamtunscire possessed the piece, which she gave to the Viking shieldmaiden Eivor Varinsdottir of the Raven Clan after being defeated.
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.
Behind the scenes
Tyr is a Norse god and a character appearing in the 2020 video game Assassin's Creed: Valhalla, where he was voiced by the Icelandic actor Gudmundur Thorvaldsson, who also voiced Tyr's human reincarnation of Sigurd.
