Thor’s daughter is getting married to a dwarf, and Thor is the last person to find out about it. Also he punted a dwarf onto a burning ship for fun at his brother’s funeral, so things might get awkward.
The creature is the Segbin, and it’s a smelly goat that bites. Don’t worry though, it doesn’t want to eat you. It wants to kill you, but it doesn’t want to eat you.

I loved your little feature on me in episode 144! Thanks, BTW, no one’s EVER HEARD OF ME, and I have NO IDEA WHY. I met Thor once on my adventures with the heroes of old. He was rude, ginger, and nothing like the epic movie Thor. This is literally the only story ever where Thor outsmarts anyone and anything. He’s clearly been spending too much time around Loki. Poor Loki.
Appreciate the long episode!
