He has been described as one of the most good-looking Asgardians and along with his charm, gave him the reputation as a ladies man.

Tales of Asgard
Fandral and the Warriors Three accompany Thor's on a ship as they journey's through the Sea of Fear and through the Pillars of Utgard in violent waters, Loki stages a mutiny with the aid of the dissenting Kroda and Magrat, splitting the crew in half and starting a fight between the two factions.
Fandral and the Warriors Three side with Thor and battle on as the ship heads toward the Dragon's Jaws. As their ship enters this lethal region, the battle gives pause to the sound of Balder, who has climbed to the top of the ships masthead with a great horn and has begun blowing it, in hopes that it's power might steer them to safety.  For all his trouble, Balder manages to succeed and the Jaw is blown to bits, allowing their ship to pass onto the next leg of their journey.  Detecting the ship, Queen Ula of the Flying Trolls sends a squad to raid the ship. Balder the Brave has collapsed in exhaustion following using a giant horn. He is then nursed back to consciousness by Fandral and Hogun.. Fandral leads the Warriors Three in a counter attack to defend their ship from the looting Trolls. Loki unleashes a potion into the air that poisons the Trolls. With the battle over, Loki takes all the credit and gloats. While inside the Hive, Ula has anticipated this move and orders her men to prepare a fitting welcome for the sons of Odin. Loki is captured by Ula, and Thor leaves to rescue him. Before Fandral and the Warriors Three are able to leave for a rescue attempt Thor and Loki appear on the ship. Odin then appears in a blinding flash and informs them that their quest is done and that they may return to Asgard. .
The Warriors Three return to home to learn news that Ragnarök looms for Asgard, Odin shows them visions of their destruction. . With the visions over, Odin asks all gathered what they think about what they have seen as it is said Loki will be the cause of Ragnarok .
Loki is tossed into the Well of Eternal Sleep, thereby preventing the coming of Ragnarok in order to further prevent Ragnarok. He then call for his son and the Warriors Three. He request they travel to Muspelheim and retrieve the Warlock Eye from the Temple of Mystics as it too was prophesied to be used to bring about Ragnarok. However the Warlock Eye has been taken by Harokin. He uses the Eye's power to destroy the Fire Demons. As this battle rages on, Fandral and his friends begin their journey. Fandral and the group fight Harokin's forces, and during the battle Thor sneaks into Harokin's chambers and knocks him and and takes his place and retrieves the Eye.Posing as Harokin, Thor orders Harokin's army to take the Warriors Three as live prisoners. As the forces of Harokin busy themselves with battling Fandral Hogun and Volstagg. With Harokin's army defeated, and the Warlock Eye in the possession the friends travel home.
Fandral once joined Thor on an odd mission to find a sorcerer named Ulagg. Using a twig of the World Tree Yggdrasill, they restored life to a ravaged world that had continental configurations resembling that of modern day Earth that had hosted a race of "evil mortals".
He along with the other Asgardians, was thought to have been killed after the events of Ragnarok. The Asgardians, however, ended up being trapped inside the bodies of people around the world. After Thor's rebirth as Dr. Donald Blake, he went looking for the other Asgardians in order to restore Asgard in the city of Broxton, Oklahoma.
When Dr. Blake, travels to Africa on behalf of the Doctors Without Borders, an organization dedicated to providing medical care to people who need it and cannot get it. There a doctor introduces him to three soldiers of fortune: Rolf Mueller, an imposing, long-winded native of Berlin; the short-spoken Leo Kincaid of San Francisco; and Trevor Newly, a beret-wearing lightweight from London. All three had joined two years previous, specifically requested this posting, and been eagerly awaiting Blake's arrival. The conversation is interrupted by a Ngare attack, and Dr. Lereaux is rendered unconscious or dead by a suicide bomber. Blake, caught in the blast, belatedly warns the guards as several Ngare attack with automatic weapons and rocket launchers. The guards enter the battle, but are outmatched until Blake reaches his cane and transforms into Thor. Unprepared to deal with the god, the Ngare retreat.
Thor then confronts the three guards, and questions them on the events that brought them here. Observing that "there is no such thing as a coincidence," he uses Mjolnir to restore the Warriors Three from the guard's bodies. Thor suggests that they pursue the Ngare, but are stopped by a village elder who says that Africa's problems can only be solved by Africans, not by white men or even Gods. Thor decides to give the village some peace, and calls on the power of his mother, Jord, to separate the two villages with a great chasm. After the exile of Thor from Asgard, the Warriors Three decided to also go on some of their own adventures around on Midgard.
