Thor is the red-haired son of Odin and god of thunder in Germanic mythology and Germanic paganism. His belt Mejingjard doubles his strength and lightning flashes every time he throws his trusty hammer, Mjölnir.
Most surviving stories relating to Germanic mythology either mention Thor or center on Thor's exploits. Thor was a much revered god of the ancient Germanic people from at least the earliest surviving written accounts of the indigenous Germanic tribes to over a thousand years later in the late Viking Age.
Thor was appealed to for protection on numerous objects found from various Germanic tribes. Miniature replicas of Mjölnir, the weapon of Thor, became a defiant symbol of Norse paganism during the Christianization of Scandinavia.
"Origin: Scandinavia. The Aesir thunder god of Norse mythology. He rides a chariot pulled by two goats, and wields the hammer Mjolnir. He also wears the belt Megingjoro and iron gloves called Jarngreipr. He is the god of lightning and thunder, as well as fertility. At Ragnarok, he will defeat Jormundandr, but will succumb to its venom."

Thorman is the American ambassador to Japan. He requests the aid of the protagonist in defeating Gotou to prevent the demons from overrunning the Earth.
Later in the story, he reveals himself to be the demon Thor, an agent of YHVH dedicated to the ideal of the Thousand Year Kingdom. He was sent to Earth after discovering that Gotou discovered a way of summoning demons from the Expanse to the human's realm and was tasked with stopping him.
In the Law route, Thor congratulates the protagonist for aiding him in the purification of Tokyo. In the Neutral and Chaos route, he fights the party. Regardless of the options, it is too late to save Tokyo from the "Hammer of Thor," a cluster of nuclear ICBMs used to purge the demons. With this, Japan is completely obliterated.
Thor is found in Ikebukuro as a member of the Mantra Army. He is first seen when he knocks Isamu Nitta unconscious with his hammer. He locks both Isamu and the Demi-fiend up, and they must prove their strength to become free. Thor is defeated by the Demi-fiend and allowed free. After the Nightmare System destroys the Mantra Army, Thor admits that their fear-based society had no hope of creating a new world. He allows Isamu to go free, and then says that he will see the Demi-fiend again if he is truly strong. He does indeed cross paths with the Demi-fiend again on the 418th floor of the Tower of Kagutsuchi. Regardless of the Demi-fiend's Reason, Thor tests the Demi-fiend's abilities again. Thor is overwhelmed and dies at that spot.

Thor's affiliation with YHVH and the forces of Law in Shin Megami Tensei is contradictory with his nature as a pagan god and as the idol of those who opposed the advance of Christianity in Northern Europe.
Despite being explicitedly described as being red-haired, he is never depicted as such in games of the series.
