Member of a supernatural sub-race of Asgard. Gullin is referred to in reference materials as an Asgardian boar-god, and also an "alleged god." Gullin may simply be a member of a supernatural Asgardian race that is known as "boar-gods", yet lacks the same level of "divine power" wielded by more undisputed deities such as Thor and Odin. Gullin is not known to have Earthly worshippers. Gullin is named after an actual Norse/Teutonic figure Gullin-Bursti, who wasn't really a full-fledged Norse god but was simply a powerful mechanical, golden boar made for Freyr by the dwarves.
