Thor is Norse! But still understandable pissed at the Frenchies!

Zeus is the Greek God of Thunder, I'd suspect him.

BTW - Who is the Greek God of pedantic nerds?!!!

Long gods, lots of gods being made angry.

If you touch the money of kings, that barbaric relict,
kiss monotheism goodbye, this one god can no longer help you. Plenty of good old gods will lend you a hand though,
but they have no mercy and are unforgiving.
