FIGURES OF NORSE MYTHOLOGY: BALDER

The son of Odin and Frigg, Balder was the god of light, joy, beauty, and purity. With his friendly, gentle, and wise nature, Balder was considered among the best of the gods. When he began dreaming about his death, Frigg extracted an oath from every creature, object, and force in nature to never harm her son. However, she overlooked the mistletoe due to its youth and small size. Using this to his advantage, Loki created a dart from the plant and manipulated Balder’s blind twin brother, Hod, into killing Balder. When the new world arises from the aftermath of Ragnarok, Balder will be reborn.
