Son of Buri. His wife was Bestla,
daughter of the frost giant Bolthorn. Bor was
the father of Odin, Vili, and Ve. An ancient god, Bor lived in the time before the world was made, when there was no earth, sea or sky, only mist, fire, ice, and the gaping pit of Ginnungugap. Bor's father-in-law Bolthor, also had a son who imparted his wisdom to his nephew, Odin.
