In a nutshell ...
God of : Sunshine, Fertility, Bountiful Harvests, Peace
Attributes :
Hall : Blodughifi
Mount : Gillinburst

Top Vanir God of fertility, Freyja's twin brother and son of Njord. He married Freyja too and they raised the exeedingly beautiful Hnoss and Gersemi.

Spotting Gerd set Frey's heart a flutter and the birth rate ground to a halt as the god of fertility just wasn't doing his job. Skirnir, the top messenger of Asgard, was sent to put in a good word but going above and beyond the call of duty commanded top rates and he demanded Frey's miraculous sword as a down payment.

Frey's sword was magical and it swung, sliced and stabbed all by itself - it will be a huge miss at Ragnarok. Frey is scheduled to go head to head with the hard hitting heavyweight fire giant known as Surtr, not the kind of guy you want to face empty handed, but more pressingly Frey had to stab Beli to death with a stags antler.

Unfortunately Beli turned out to be Gerds brother so the woo'ing didn't get offf to the best of starts but she was soon in Asgard, married, and giving birth to Fiolnir because Skirnir threatened to inflict her with many unscratchable itches.

Frey was the proud owner of Gillunburst the gold bristled boar said to represent sun light and Skidbladnir the magical flat-pack ship complete with its own wind, courtesy of one of Loki's more fruitful adventures, and his role as fertility God is there for all to see in many statues with his appropriate appendage proudly pointing north.
