The Badger is the male badger (who apparently doesn't care to have a name) god. His mate is Mother Brock, the female badger god. Together they have authority over and responsibility to all of the badgers in the Eastern Lands and elsewhere.
Like all gods, the Badger possesses immense magical powers.
The Badger and Daine
The Badger looks after Daine and guides her, having promised her father, Weiryn, that he would look after her in the Mortal Realms. He gives her one of his silver claws as a talisman.
He gives her lessons on her magic and offers advice (whether she wants it or not) on the scrapes she gets herself into. They have an affectionate relationship, though Daine occasionally needs a reminder that the Badger is a god, and should be listened to.
