The Norse God Týr is associated with law and heroic glory in Norse paganism. He characteristically has one hand as it was bitten off by the wolf Fenrir. Týr is widely regarded as the head of the pantheon of Germanic and Norse paganism but he was over-taken by the popularity of Wodan (Odin) and Donar (Thor).
