Tyr Tiwaz Rune Raven Pendant. Tyr was the Norse god of war, a brave warrior and member of the Aesir tribe, he championed order and justice. The namesake of Tuesday, he lost his arm to Loki's ferocious offspring Fenrir, the giant wolf. The one-armed god of the Norse pantheon, Tyr was a member of the Aesir tribe who represented war and bloodshed. Wear this amulet and you will always have the protection of the Norse God of War Tyr.
Tyr plays the protagonist role in the "Binding of Fenrir" the monstrous wolf. After the Aesir had cast Jormungandr into the sea and sent Hela to Helheim, they brought Fenrir to Asgard to be raised among them. They knew that if Fenrir were allowed to run free he would finally devour the world and hoped that maybe they could domesticate Fenrir and make a guardian of him.
Tyr took the young Fenrir in and raised him. Of all the Aesir, Tyr understood how to subdue savagery. The blood of Jotunheim ran pure through his veins - he was child of the frost giant Hymir and the mountain giantess Fjörgyn. But as Fenrir grew it became clear that the prophecies were not to be denied. And so Tyr sacrificed his hand - and his word, and his honor - to do what had to be done to protect the Aesir Gods.
