Tiw (Tyr) is a guiding star; well does it keep faith with princes;
it is ever on its course over the mists of night and never fails.
~ Anglo-Saxon Rune PoemTiwaz is named for the old Norse god Tyr, known for sacrificing his hand to a giant wolf (Fenrir) in order to bind his power. As a result he is known as the god of justice, war, sacrifice and contracts. The poem speaks of "keeping faith with princes," which means being loyal and supportive of them. But what about the everyday people, those who aren't royalty? The fact that Tyr is also considered a god of war makes me question whether the end justifies the means - especially if it is at the expense of those everyday people. I'm not sure the King of Wands should be leading by that example.
