Odin the All Father: "Can you write them? Read them? Can you paint them? Prove them? Know you how to wish? How to worship? How to summon? How to sacrifice? Better not to ask than to over-pledge. As a gift demands a gift. Better not to send than to slay too many. Well-being I won and wisdom too, I grew and joyed in my growth - I was led to a word, from a deed to another deed..."
Odin Allfather - The One Eyed Wanderer I wot that I hung on the wind-tossed tree all of nights nine, wounded by spear, bespoken to Óthin, bespoken myself to myself, upon that tree of which none telleth from what roots it doth rise.” —Óthin, Hávamál: 138
Odin- His name is related to the meaning "fury, excitation." His role, like that of many of the Norse gods, is complex. Odin is a principal member of the major group of the Norse pantheon and is associated with war, battle, victory and death, but also wisdom, Shamanism, magic, poetry, prophecy, and the hunt. Odin has many sons, the most famous of whom is Thor.
Odin ("The Furious One") is a major god in Germanic mythology, especially in Norse mythology. In many Norse sources he is the Allfather of the gods and the ruler of Asgard. In Norse mythology, Huginn (from Old Norse "thought") and Muninn (Old Norse "memory" or "mind") are a pair of ravens that fly all over the world, Midgard, and bring information to the god.
