Origin[edit | edit source]

Tyr is one of the many Norse gods associated with laws and justice. One of the earlier gods, he served as the chief to war activities until Thor and Odin gained stronger worship in the pantheon. Tyr dealt with formal laws including treaties, agreements and the adherence of justice.

The most famous parable involved the behemoth wolf Fenrir. The gods wanted to entrap Fenrir in specially forged chains but that required direct placement over his mouth. To show his honor, Tyr placed his hand between its jaws. When Fenrir realized the ruse, he bit off Tyr's hand.

Effects[edit | edit source]

Clamps onto the wrist of the nearest person invoking a governing law or binding contract. It will pinch the flesh and send specific signals through the nerve clusters, making the user more inclined to make a fair and honest deal. Breaking any agreed upon conditions or attempting trickery will forfeit the user's hand with a sudden out-of-the blue crunch.
