The Nords have their own rulers within the north, seperate from the king and queen who rule over the rest of the humans in Athera. They instead follow their own kings and jarls.:
Much like the other races of Athera, the nords do have their own gods which they worship. However, it is a common misconception that, just because they are also humans, the nords worship the human gods but that is not true. Instead, they have their own pantheon.
