Norse God Forseti (Forsite)

The God of Justice and Truth. Son of Balder, god of light, and of Nanna, goddess of immaculate purity, Forseti was the wisest, most eloquent, and most gentle of all the gods. When his presence in Asgard became known, the gods awarded him a seat in the council hall, decreed that he should be patron of justice and righteousness, and gave him as abode the radiant palace Glitnir.

When blending in among the people of Midgard during the Viking age, Forseti would be weary about using his true name. It’s not uncommon for people to name their children after one of the Gods, but for someone to be the son of Baldr and Nanna, he still prefers to take no risk. Instead, Forseti introduces himself as Stígandr, after an Old Norse term for ‘wanderer’.

Memes, inboxes, IMs etc. etc. will be taken care of once I’m no longer being kept from my laptop by some visitors for dinner. In the meantime, feel free to hit the ♥ on this post if you’d like me to send you some starters/memes later on today, or somewhere tomorrow.
