Gorlog is a first-ranked Skandian god. He is one of the Vallas together with Hergel and Thurak and stands above the second-ranking gods Ullr and Loki. He is also has a brother, Orlog, and his name is also a popular curse (by Gorlog's claws and nostrils!).

According to Halt, the Skandians don't like him very much. In the Brotherband series he is said to have a lesser-known counterpart named Orlog.


Gorlog appears in two forms: his human form and his Vallas-form. His human form has long teeth, a long unkept beard and horns growing from his head. His Vallas-form has the appearance of a bear.
