He is also said to be the one to take Odin's place after the end of times and begin the world anew.

Vidar is known as both the God of Silence and the God of Vengeance. That's why the angel looks the way he does. I wanted to make him look like a physical embodiment of pain, suffering and silence but still remain beautiful at the same time.
