Thor

Thor is a Prince of the Aesir gods, and a god of storms, thunder, and war (Tempest and War domains). While he is not as intelligent as his parents, he is commended often by them for his bravery, adventurous spirit, and prowess in battle. His exploits are well known among both gods and mortals, and many priests, clerics, and paladins are proud to consider him their patron.   He is the son of Odin and Frigga, and the younger brother of Baldur. He has a wife named Sif, and hopes to have children one day with her. While he loves his family well, he is ignorant of Baldur's resentment towards him for his fame.   Thor has much in the way of help. He is often joined on his adventures by his housecarls Jalfi and Roskva, and his fierce wife Sif occasionally comes along to remind everyone that she is no trophy wife. He has a great flying chariot pulled by the two goats Tanngrisnir and Tarngnjostr. Even without these companions Thor has much in the way of assistance. He wields the storm hammer Mjolnir, wears the gloves of protection Jarngreipr and the belt of strength Megingjoro, and has the staff Gridarvolr should he ever require magic to assist him.   There are two tales as to the origin of his equipment. The first is that Loki stole them from the Vanir smith Vynja along with the spear Gungnir, and that she has wanted her works back ever since. The second is that Baldur made them for Odin to impress his father, only for his intended recipient to gift them to Thor. The Vanir tell the first tale while the Aesir tell the second, though it is possible that both are true in part. Loki could have stolen Gungnir and Mjolnir while Baldur made the rest of Thor's equipment.
