Hi, my name is Balder (Baldr for short). I am the god of Purity and Light
My wife's name was Nanna and she was beautiful and kind.
Nobody knows if I had any special powers BUT I was loved by all the gods and people
I was born from the goddess Frigg and Odin, king of all gods in the natural way
The only enemy I had was Loki, who killed me in the end because he was so jealous that everyone loved me
Loki found out, got a mistletoe dart and tricked my blind brother into throwing it through my heart. I could have come back
My unique story is the one of my death. My mother had nightmares about my death so she make everyone swear not to harm me, except the mistletoe.
but when everyone was told to weep for my return, Loki didn't, so I had to remain in the underworld
