“There is nothing else in magic but the wild thought of the bird as it casts itself in2 the void..no creature upon the earth w/such potential for magic.Even the least of them may fly straight out of this world& come by chance to the OtherLands.Where does the wind come from that blows upon ur face,..fans the pages of ur book?Where the..magic of small wild creatures meets the magic of Man,where the language of the wind&the rain&the trees can b understood,there we will find the Raven King."S Clarke

In Norse mythology, Huginn ("thought") & Muninn ("memory") are a pair of ravens that fly all over the world, Midgard, to bring information to the god Odin. In the Poetic Edda, a disguised Odin expresses that he fears that they may not return from their daily flights. The Prose Edda explains that Odin is referred to as "raven-god" due to his association with Huginn & Muninn, who are described as perching on his shoulders. Odin gave the ravens the ability to speak.
