Orvandil-Egil as Wuldor’s Father

In the texts there is nothing said of Wuldor’s father and there is much speculation. It has been suggested that Sif was once married to Orvandil-Egil. Egil is the middle son of the Elf Ivaldi and giantess Greip. He is known as the best archer and also associated with skiing. There is a story that he was stolen as a baby by the frostgiants and rescued by Thor. One of his toes, sticking out of the basket in which Thor carried him, became frostbitten. Thor accidentally broke it off and then threw it into the sky as a star in the constellation Orion.
