is the ancient god of War and the Lawgiver of the gods.ο»ΏTyr also seems to be a god of justice. His name is derived from Tiw or Tiwaz an Tacticus and other Roman writers have equated this character to Mars, the receiver of human sacrifice. His day is Tuesday.
When the Aesir were preparing to bind Fenris, using the chain called Gleipnir, the giant wolf refused to submit unless one of the gods put his arm in the wolfs mouth as aguarantee.

Tyr volunteered and there by lost his right hand, evidencing his fearlessness, giving of the individual self to serve the interest of the whole.
Like Odin, he has many characteristics of the earlier Germanic gods of battle. Parallels in other mythologies along with archaeological discoveries relating to a one-handed god, suggest that this character is very old and was known in Northern Europe somewhere between one and two thousand years before Snorri Sturluson included it in his Prose Edda.
