The God of Thunder

Reputation

The God of Thunder is known throughout the Nine Realms for a few reasons. He's the Heir to the throne of Asgard. His courage and strength seemingly know no bounds. He hung out with Vikings before everybody was doing it at Conventions. He's also the God of Thunder and has an uncanny ability to put away drinks.

Biography

Born from a union for the express purpose of creating an heir stronger than what Asgard could alone produce, the future God of Thunder's early years were for the most part idyllic. Days of playing with his equally young friends, and nights of feasts and stories of daring-do. Life was good. Yet being the son of Odin and heir to the throne came with a unique set of lessons. Raised amongst the warriors of Asgard, tutored by his father on how to be just and fair, he was instilled with a need to uphold simple virtues that seem a relic in today's age.

Honor. Courage. Loyalty. Simple virtues, yet the very core around which Thor was raised, guiding him as he grew. His brother Loki was a constant companion as they embarked into adolescence and adventure together, with substantial jealousy as Thor's shadow grew.

While still young, the hammer Mjolnir was created on the orders of the All-Father specifically for Thor, to be gifted on the day he proved himself a warrior worthy of wielding the weapon. Galvanized to join the warriors he had been raised upon, the young Prince threw himself into his training, pursuing the heroic deeds that would, years later, earn him the weapon.

And thus began the legend of Thor, God of Thunder, who would go on to fight countless battles for honor, always where the fighting was the thickest, and almost always joined by his friends. His adventuring party crafted their legend together across the Nine Realms with every battle waged, every friend they lost and found anew, and every meal they broke, in victory or defeat.

His honor as large as his body was strong, he led his friends with a sureness that would grow to arrogance, always speaking - and striking - out against those who would go against his ideals of honor and courage. No one, not even his brother, would be exempt.

Thor's shadow grew ever longer with every successful adventure, gradually plunging Loki into darkness. His relations would turn rocky at times, yet never severed - too much history existed within the group for them to ever truly split.

Or so Thor thought. After a bold attack on Asgard during what was to be Thor's coronation as King, his rage sparked and an assault against the Frost Giants of Jotunheim nearly led them to ruin if not for the timely intervention of the All-Father. Deemed a breaking of the peace that the Nine Realms had long held, Thor's reckless arrogance led Odin to the only decision he thought possible; he banished his prized son, deeming him unworthy.

Cast down to Earth, New Mexico to be precise, Thor found himself powerless, stripped of Mjolnir, and on the cusp of a new adventure with generous mortals. He would meet the mortals Jane Foster, Darcy Lewis and Erik Selvig, and journey to first cope with his loss, and then to better himself.

He would learn of his brother's betrayal, the loyalty broken. By sacrificing himself to save the lives of the innocent he learned the lesson that Odin had hoped for him to. Mjolnir and his godhood returned to him, and he ventured forth to remove his brother from the throne of Asgard.

After some time stabilizing the Nine Realms to ensure that peace remained as best it could, Thor eventually made his way back to Midgard, only to find that far too long had gone by - his fleeting romance with Jane was over. Inevitably his brother resurfaced as well, and he found himself embroiled in helping one silly, helpless mortal after the next. Now, he views Midgard as his realm to protect, and so he shall.

Character Details

With the future of the Nine Realms eventually his to rule over, Thor Odinson of Asgard has been raised to rule. With countless millennia spent fighting the good fight, defending the helpless and maintaining the peace, the God of Thunder has been molded into a true champion, yet one possessing a bullheaded stubbornness that borders on the reckless. With a pure heart beating within his impressive chest, he strives to do no wrong, to tell no lie, and to be honorable at all costs. He is not without his flaws - he has issues with his Father, his Brother, and a few women from his past. In many ways, he is still learning, and if he is ever to surpass his father as the King of Asgard, he must temper his impulsive, reckless and oft-times foolish nature, to rely on cunning as opposed to brute strength. For that he has in abundance, as the Strongest Avenger.

Relationships

Image Name Would Thor Hit That Information
ybjh8kU.png Jane 4/5 Hammers The mortal through which Thor found himself Worthy. Recently reunited, and a treasured friend. Just a friend.
RE6iiel.png Peggy Carter 4/5 Hammers A spymaster. A distasteful profession, but necessary. The lady herself is quite sweet and made an offer Thor couldn't refuse. They now live together.
jrQA4ob.png Peter Quill 3/5 Hammers A decent drinker. Quill has within him many of the qualities of the Warriors Three, but Thor will never tell him that. Currently the parolee to Thor's parole officer.
Xd8Rcky.png Bucky Barnes 3/5 Hammers Jane's boyfriend. Thor's not sure about him yet, but he makes Jane smile. And cry. That's not great. Always shake with the left.
kBA6vCl.png Zatanna Zatara 2/5 Hammers A sorceress, drawing in people who have no part in such games. Most definitely need to have a heart-to-heart with her about that.
