|Tyr Hymirson, lonely guardian of Fenriswolf.|
Tyr Hymirson is a warrior serving under Odin. Years ago, he sacrificed his own arm to seal away the frost demon Fenriswolf, and is now charged with guarding the creature's prison with his life to ensure that it doesn't get unleashed upon the universe. As an Aesir, he possesses the ability to use powerful magic in exchange for some of his blood or flesh.
Tyr is a very large man, at least half a head taller than most humans and well-built. His hair is long and blonde, reaching down to his chin when he doesn't bother to tuck it behind his ears. He is also usually seen with a beard. He doesn't really have a specific "style" of clothing, and usually just wears whatever's available. He is missing his right forearm, and instead wears a prosthetic made of gray stone in its place. The prosthetic is rigid and ends in three curved claws, and etched with complicated runes that sometimes glow with a frosty blue light.
For the most part, Tyr is a serious, stern, and responsible man - the exact sort of person you would expect to give up their hand to stop the rampaging of an incredibly powerful monster, then spend centuries guarding said monster's prison. He is a person who values justice and fairness over all else, and can never turn a blind eye when it comes to imbalance or chaos. He is unrelenting both on the battlefield and in his own beliefs. Outside of combat, he is stony-faced yet polite, but can easily pushed into a chilling rage if one knows how to push his buttons. That being said... after separating himself from nearly all of civilization for hundreds of years and wandering aimlessly on the edge of the galaxy in order to safeguard a god-killing wolf inside of his arm, Tyr's social skills are more than just outdated. He's acutely aware of this, and tends to get uncertain and confused about how to proceed whenever fighting and saving the world isn't directly involved with how he interacts with others. He has a habit of asking questions about seemingly trivial things whenever he's stumped by something, and between his enormity and the politeness of his questioning, it's kind of funny to others some of the time. He's a bit paranoid and overcautious when it comes to others as well, and tends to be a bit TOO safe at times, as best demonstrated by his aforementioned retreat to the edge of the galaxy.
Since returning to civilization, Tyr has picked up a few odd hobbies. He shows a keen interest in politics, and follows the news on this front with a passion most people save for TV shows. Speaking of, Tyr actually doesn't care for most shows, and finds the ones filled with "historical inaccuracies" particularly hard to sit through. Though he can't play most video games due to only having one functioning arm, he manages to find occasional entertainment with the Nintendo Wii and Switch consoles, mostly due to their one-handed motion controls. He has a surprisingly balanced and healthy diet for a Norse warrior, but he does tend to shovel just as much meat onto his food as one would expect. He never gets any jokes, ever. Even when they're explained to him, he'll just be completely bewildered. He is also afraid of most canines, regardless of how normal they are.
Despite spending centuries without a sparring partner or access to modern sword techniques, Tyr is an incredibly dangerous martial fighter. Though he specializes in large bladed weapons like swords and axes, he can get used to weapons of all shapes and sizes, including modern firearms, with only a few test swings or practice shots.
Tyr's greatest strength is his Aesir's Blood, an ability granted to him and all Aesir by their Galvan Blood. By willingly sacrificing his blood or body parts, he is able to unleash a small amount of Power Chaotic and cast powerful spells. Compared to some other Aesir, he uses this power sparingly, preferring to heavily wound himself in exchange for heavy power at the fight's climax rather than gradually wound himself throughout fights.
Centuries ago, Tyr sacrificed his right forearm to combine it and Fenriswolf with a powerful spell, creating a three-clawed magical prosthetic that acts as the beast's prison. Tyr nearly always wears it in the place where his old forearm used to be, allowing him to tap into a fraction of Fenriswolf's power and wield the monster's ice magic as if it were his own. Since its claws don't actually move, the arm cannot be used for interacting with most objects and is basically useless outside of its ice magic.
Most of Tyr's past is currently unknown. All that is known is that, centuries ago, he stopped the rampage of the enormous wolf-like frost demon Fenriswolf - a beast capable of wielding Power Harmonic, which according to Odin would destroy Asgard if left unchecked. To do this, he used his Aesir's Blood and transformed Fenriswolf into a Chaotic Arm, sacrificing his own right forearm in the process.
After that victory, he took the Demonic Arm Fenriswolf with him to one of the farthest corners of the universe. He guarded the beast there for centuries... but then, when The Threat, The Fan, and The Enemy were all Descended, he felt the massive shift in power in his blood. Not knowing what it was but fearing for Asgard's safety, he (quite literally) armed himself with Fenriswolf and returned to Earth...
- Fenriswolf: The most annoying thing about wearing your archnemesis on your arm is that you have to put up with it constantly. By this point, Fenriswolf has gotten so bored that it stays quiet most of the time, but it will occasionally pipe up with scathing remarks, resulting in Tyr slamming it into the closest sturdy-looking object and telling it to shut up.

- Mynis: Tyr wouldn't willingly pick Mynis to fight at the Aesir's side at the world's end. He knows that much for sure. Still, even if the little guy doesn't have the talent or the disposition of a hero, he at least does a good job at mimicking the audacity of one and his heart's in the right place, which is commendable enough. On the exceedingly rare occasions where the two happen to be together, it isn't uncommon for them to go drinking together.
- Tyr is based off of the Norse god of the same name, as well as Marvel Comics's Thor character.
