Definition
Norse mythology:  god of light and peace and noted for his beauty and sweet nature; Loki tricked the blind god, Hoth, into killing Balder
  • The rosy man had grown pale; his flesh had fallen away; he was visibly balder and older; and yet it was not so much, these tokens of a swift physical decay that arrested the lawyer's notice, as a look in the eye and quality of manner that seemed to testify to some deep-seated terror of the mind.
