Who Is Alviss Stonefoot in God of War Ragnarok?

If you paddle around the water long enough in the boat, Mimir will tell Kratos and Atreus that the dwarven statue is of a man named Alviss Stonefoot. In his story, he describes him as a mighty character, one who used to use his might to imprison some of the most dangerous creatures in the realm.

While Mimir doesn’t go into too much more detail, the character does seem to be based on another character in Norse mythology. Apparently, one of Thor’s daughters was promised to Alviss, but the God of Thunder wasn’t happy with the match.

Thor told Alviss that the dwarf had to prove his wisdom due to his small stature. Alviss agreed, but Thor made the tests last till dawn, which turned the dwarf to stone after he was petrified from being exposed to sunlight.

In God of War Ragnarok, the dwarven characters don’t seem to have any issues going out in sunlight, but one can surmise that Alviss might have met a similar fate in terms of being tricked by Thor, which likely led to his death.
