Cassandra was the most beautiful of Priam’s daughters, the god Apollo fell in love with her. Apollo promised Cassandra the gift of prophecy if she would agree to give herself to him. Cassandra accepted Apollo’s gift but then refused his advances. Apollo was furious, but he could not take back the powers he had given her. Instead he cursed her, proclaiming that although she would be able to tell the future accurately, no one would believe her. #myth

"Sleipnir is the 8 legged steed that carries Odin, is the child of Loki and Svaðilfari, is described as the best of all horses, and is sometimes ridden to the location of Hel. The Prose Edda contains extended information regarding the circumstances of Sleipnir's birth, and details that he is grey in color"

Geri and Freki, Odin's wolfs. When he feasts with the slain warriors, selected by the Valkyries.- the Einherjar-, in Valhalla, he only indulges in the divine Mead, from the udders of the goat Heidrun... All other food offered to him he feeds to his wolves. en.wikipedia.org/...

To defeat the Fenrir, is to understand the Fenrir. Become the beast you aim to destroy.

Odins raven watches over viking ship.

Odin and ravens. Now THAT's the god of magic and poetry, not some Viking bruiser.

The Norns - Norse - govern fate, Urd - what has been, Verdandi - what is, Skuld - what is to come. They spin the threads and weave the tapestry of fate for each person's life. The length of the thread is the life span, even the Gods have their own threads but they are hidden. Everything is predetermined by destiny.
