Hodur (or Hoeder)

Hodur (or Hoeder)

in Norse mythology, was a very powerful god of the Asas, but blind; the son of Odin and Frigga, therefore Baldur's brother. The latter having been made invulnerable by his mother. Loke showed the blind Hodur the small plant mistletoe, which the latter threw at Baldur, who died. and was taken to Hel in the infernal regions. A third son of Odin avenged Baldur's death, by slaying Hodur and sending him to Hel. Hodur and Baldur remain good friends, because the former committed the injury involuntarily.
