    Default Balder The Brave: Appreciation Thread 2020

    I just thought I'd start an appreciation thread for Balder, that god of light, the bravest in all of Asgard. The last part has been said several times in the comics, that wasn't my fan worship.


    What is your favorite thing about Balder? His not so healthy relationship with Karnilla? His friendship with the god of thunder? The rivalry between him and Loki? His Loyality? His sword skills? His helmet?

    If you like Balder for these and other reasons (or maybe none or only some of those reasons). Or even if you are new to the character. Then this is his thread, because I could not find another.




    Just so you know this is not his natural hair color. This was what he got at Hela's barbers. He is back to his original hair color now.

    BIO:

    Balder is the biological son of Odin by Frigga. Balder's birth was not celebrated, as Odin received dreams and portents that foretold Balder's role as the catalyst for Ragnarok. The visions saw that Balder's death would start the Ragnarock. This made his mother decide to make him invulnerable to all weapons and spells, save for mistletoe wood. Balder grew up in the fabled halls of Asgard and became a stalwart friend and ally to Thor. He was also often seen with the Warriors Three, but was not part of that merry band. Balder became known for his kindness, which resulted in an innate empathy and symbiosis with all life, even extending to a connection to all animals in all realms touched by the World Tree (birds, deer, bears, even elves and dwarves) . This made fellow Asgardian Loki loathe Baldur. More then just once, Loki set a traps for the kind Balder, hoping for him to either perish or trying to blame a misdeed on him. Loki however never really succeeded and Balder's reputation as a just and noble immortal continued to grow. During his years as an adult, Balder fought alongside his fellow Asgardians' in many battles, earning the name "Balder the Brave" for his bravery shown in these battles.
