Broddr was one of six sons born to Hemdall and Heulyn. He was founder of Clan Dimun, whose members dwell on the Isle of Faroe, was an extraordinarily good and fair man, giving advice and help to all who came to him. He loathed looting and deception and never told a lie - in short, he was a paragon of virtue. He ruled his people wisely and lived to a venerable age. At the dusk of his life he was summoned before Hemdall, but a whale devoured his longship and he never reached his journey's end. Ever since, descendants of his line have hunted whales in search of the bones of their great and beloved ancestor.
His brothers are Grymmdjarr, Modolf, Otkell, Sove and Tyr.
