Ho’dur.
 
Balder’s twin brother; the God of Darkness; the blind god who killed Balder, at the instigation of Loki, with an arrow made of mistletoe. Hödur typifies night, as Balder typifies day. (Scandinavian mythology.)   1
       
“And Balder’s pile of the glowing sun
A symbol true blazed forth;
But soon its splendour sinketh down
When Höder rules the earth.”
