"Stuhn, whale God of Ransom, War captives seek his calm. With shield and horn his boon, Stands with us, does fair Stuhn."
—The Song of Gods

Stuhn is the Nordic God of Ransom, Fraternity, and Justice, and is represented by a whale. He is the brother of Tsun and the shield-thane of Shor and is one of the Hearth Gods.[1] Stuhn fought against the Aldmeri pantheon and showed Men how to take, and the benefits of taking, prisoners of war.

He is seen as a precursor to Stendarr by some and seen as the same as Stendarr by others.[2][3] His teachings are paired up with those of Jhunal.[4]



Two of the Five Hundred Companions of Ysgramor known as Ysmanue and Jhethen fashioned their beards as Stuhn and Tsun once did.[UOL 1]
