Who is Tyr in God of War Ragnarok?

Who Is Tyr In God Of War Ragnarok

From the God of War (2018) game, we get to know about Tyr through the Jotunheim Murals. Moreover, on certain spots, we will get to hear about him from Mimir. As Mimir describes, the Giants never let Odin enter the Jotunheim but due to their utmost faith in Tyr, they let him in for negotiations. Though, Odin betrayed the Giants and broke the deals, and tried to wreak havoc in Jotunheim. Tyr helped Faye, the Guardian of the Giants to hide the gates of Jotunheim somewhere in the space between the Realms. Odin then imprisoned him somewhere in the Nine Realms for being a Pacifist and helping out the Jotuns.

Now, in God of War Ragnarok, we will be seeing Kratos and Atreus embarking on a journey to free Tyr. The series of events leading toward the introduction of Tyr in Ragnarok is surely going to be an iconic spot to witness.

As mentioned above, Tyr is the Norse God of War, Law & Order. Norse Mythology suggests that he is the Son of Odin and half-brother of Thor, Baldur, Hodr, and Bragi. Despite holding a great amount of power and courage, Tyr always chose peace over war. In Norse Mythology, Tyr was known for his great courage when he stepped up to feed Fenrir, the Giant Wolf when he was growing extraordinarily fast. He then lost his hand due to Fenrir’s rage against the Gods and their false oaths. During his peak, Tyr used most of his time to travel across the Realms and knowing their culture.
