Aesir

The Aesir gods are the gods that descend from Odin and that make their home in Asgard.

They were the crude counterparts of the Vanir, being the gods of war, death, power, and destruction. They were the lords and ladies of the sky. Famous Aesir include Thor (the god of thunder, strength, and holiness) and Baldr (the god of beauty, sunlight, and summer).
