Blöthar is the current lead vocalist, and occasional bassist, in the metal band Gwar. He appears as a stout (hence his name) humanoid girded in Pagan/Roman-style armour with thorny antler-esque wings, horned helmet and blue-purple fur collar and loincloth. Gwar's appearance at the 2014 Chicago Riot Fest debuted an udder that sprays fluids on the crowd, much like the "Cuttlefish of Cthulu" penile attachment sported by the late Gwar singer Oderus Urungus. Blöthar is usually portrayed wielding a wooden shield sword or a battle-axe.
According to Gwar mythos, Blöthar came to Earth from Scumdogia after his awakening shortly after the death of singer Oderus Urungus. Over the decades he had been watching Gwar getting girls and smoking crack off the back of the songs he had written, and he wanted a piece of the action. After a battle for supremacy, he took place, reigning over Gwar and the Slave Pit. Blöthar's ceremonial headdress is fashioned from the gigantic antlers and the pelt of a Spectral Moon Moose he killed eons ago. He carries a mighty battle axe, impenetrable shield, and is outfitted with a pair of udders which is the main natural defense mechanism of his species. Blöthar is portrayed by Michael Bishop, who originally played Beefcake the Mighty, from 1988-1994, and again from 1998-1999.
