Teiwaz or Tyr was the god of war, and the original sky-father deity until Wodanaz discovered the runes of power. Married to Zisa, Teiwaz was the only god brave enough to try and tie down the huge wolf, Fenrir. He bound the wolf with Gleipnir, the Fooler, an unbreakable rope crafted by dwarves but had his sword hand bitten off in the struggle. He is destined to fall at Ragnarok, the last great battle of the gods, killed by the hound of Hellheim, Garm. He demanded courage and honour from his followers, and warriors would swear their allegiance to leaders by Teiwaz. The Germans believed he held so much sway over the outcome of battles that they sacrificed many spoils to him, including prisoners. Arguments would be put to him to be decided in trials by combat. The Hermunduri tribe are known to have made human sacrifice to him and Tuesday is a distant echo of his name.
