(Norse Deity)VANIR

The rustic nature and fertility Gods from Vanaheim.

They despised the Aesir, being more into cultivation and outdoor activities of the not-war variety themselves, but were willing to live and let live until they bullied one of their number, Gullveig.

She arrived at Asgard talking about nothing but gold which was a novelty at first but they were soon bored of the repetitive banter and threw her onto a raging fire ... three times.

This is the sort of behaviour that starts wars and the Vanir, more at home with wands and muck-rakes, made for Asgard armed with powerful magic and unrivalled cunning.

They managed to oust the Aesir with relative ease, truth be told, but eventually hatchets were buried in something other than heads, hostages were exchanged and peace treaties signed after drinking copious ammounts of mead and filling a huge bucket with spittle.. which turned into a bucket-full of problems. (see Mimir)

The Vanir are now next door neighbours of the Aesir and while they're not exactly the sugar borrowing type they are at relative peace, despite Odin's shamefull hostage fixing incident.

Check out Frey - Freyja - Hoenir - Mimir - Njord.
