Njord (Old Norse Njörðr) is the God of the wind, seafarers, coasts, inland waters and wealth, he is a member of the Vanir. When the war between the Vanir and the Aesir ended, Njord and two others, were sent to the Aesir as a token of truce, in return the Aesir sent Honir and Mimir to the Vanir. Njord lives in a house on the seashore in Asgard, which he called Noatun “Ship Haven”.
Njord is married to the giantess Skadi, Njord has a sister by the name Nerthus, together with his sister they have two children Freya and Freyr. Njord is often mistaken for the god of the sea, though this conception is incorrect because that is the God Ægir.
