Your Field Guide to Spotting Frey (Freyr)

Don’t expect to see Frey anytime soon. He’s in the forest of Barri right now, on his honeymoon with the giantess Gerðr. You should have seen him after he first caught sight of Gerðr – moping around like a lovesick puppy. Most of the time, though, he’s a powerful, muscular Aesir god who rides around on his giant boar. With a cape. Glorious.
