Baldur is one of the forgers of Gleipnir, even though it is not clear what “impossible thing” he gave up in its construction. When Craig Hale attempted to beseech his aid against the Red Court assault in the IDS Tower; Baldur refused stating that he “must not interfere.” Coincidentally, Susana Valencia also ordered her vampires to ignore Baldur during the assault. Baldur did lend minor aid to the i nvestigators. He helped Craig and Bethany Tempest regain their mental fortitude through some kind words; he also took care of an incapacitated Madison Jotunnson.

He is also one of the chief financial backers behind David Anderson’s run to become Governor of Minnesota.
