Ve is the youngest son of Bor and Bestla, making him a half-giant. He was the middle brother of the three gods of Norse creation, his older brothers being Odin and Vili.

“Ve” means “temple”. During the creation of mankind, it was Ve who granted us our five senses and human appearance.

After a heated argument between Odin and his brothers, Vili and Ve decided to make Vanaheim their new home. The Vanir gods are argued to be the descendants of Vili and Ve. The two brothers are not mentioned any further in original Norse sources.
