Thor is the Norse God of Storms and Strength, the son of Odin and generally one of the most important figures in the Nordic pantheon - certainly their most famous and recognizable mythological figure to the average person. He has been a recurring deity in many editions of Dungeons & Dragons, but is also relevant to those interested in superhero RPGs like Mutants & Masterminds, as he was adapted into a comic book superhero by Marvel Comics - which means he also has a direct RPG conversion, due to the Marvel Super Heroes RPG. Also of interest is the fact that Thor was originally depicted as red-haired, including the beard; the popularity of his Marvel incarnation gave rise to a notable increase in blonde depictions outside the MCU.

Thor was originally Donar, a warrior and chieftain of the Antalian Tribes, who sought Immortality after being inspired by Wotan. After numerous battles against evil wizards and giants that would become legendary among the people of the Northern Reaches, he ascended to Immortality in the Sphere of Energy, being sponsored by Ixion.
Thor appears as a red-headed and bearded, huge warrior, wearing the armor like that worn in the Northern Reaches, a metal bet and gloves, and carrying a huge warhammer.
Thor is cheerful and reckless, prone to sudden bursts of anger but loyal and friendly to his allies. He demands that his followers follow a strict code of honor and courage. His allies are Frey, Freyja, and Odin, to whom he serves as chief warrior. His only enemy is Loki, with the two having long history of feuds.
