Vidarr is the god of vengeance in Norse mythology. A member of the Æsir, he is the son of Odin and the giantess Gridr. During Ragnarok, when the monstrous wolf Fenrir swallows Odin whole, Vidarr is told to avenge his fathers death, as he takes Fenrir by the jaw and tears his head apart, killing Fenrir. He will ultimately survive Ragnarok, as he will then meet with his brother Vali in Idavollr, where Asgard once lay; there they are joined by their brothers, Hodr and Baldr, as well as Thors sons, Magni and Modi.
