(Lethal) Ullr, Godsend Rival Hunter


Even in the face of grim odds, Ullr gladly accepts any challenge; for the bigger they are, the harder they fall. No matter the weather, he gaily fights on. Later he gains use of skis and a bow, coming to be revered as the "Wintry Mountain Huntsman"


Name OriginEdit

In early Germanic paganism, *Wulþuz ("glory"; Old Norse Ullr) appears to have been a major god, or an epithet of an important god, in prehistoric times. The term wolþu- "glory", possibly in reference to the god, is attested on the 3rd century Thorsberg chape (as owlþu-), but medieval Icelandic sources have only sparse material on Old Norse Ullr.

The Old English cognate wuldor means "glory" but is not used as a proper name, although it figures frequently in kennings for the Christian God such aswuldres cyning "king of glory", wuldorfæder "glory-father" or wuldor alwealda"glorious all-ruler".

The medieval Norse word was Latinized as Ollerus. The Modern Icelandic form is Ullur. In the mainland Scandinavian languages the modern form is Ull.
