Odin - Finder of Runes, God of Rune Wisdom and Guardian of the Skalds.
He is High God of the Asen / highest and first deity / god of poetry, of knowledge, of magic / celestial, war, and god of death. As a storm god, he is leader of Wotan Heeren.
Odin, the all-father, son of Burr and the giantess Bestla. Together with his brothers Hönir and Lodur Odin created - as the legend says - the first human couple (Askr and Embla), and gave them a soul.
He sits on his throne Hlidskialf - in the hall Walaskialf in the castle Asgard - and can watch the whole world from there. He is all-seeing and knows what is said and done.
On Odin's side are the ravens, Hugin (the thought) and Munin (the memory), who return each morning from their journey to tell Odin about the news of the world.
Likewise, the two wolves Geri (greedy) and Freki (greedy) accompany him. With his eight-legged stallion Sleipnir he rides against the forces of darkness!
Odin pledges his uncle Mimir his eye to drink from the truth well the Met Odrörir. His wealth is due to his golden ring Draupnir, from which drip eight more rings every nine days.
In combat, he relies on the spear Gungnir, who never misses the target.
Odin's mythical wife is Frigg, whose old German name Frijamit is identical to the Nordic goddess Freyja. Also in the Edda Frigg is identified with Freyja. His wife gave birth to his sons Thor, Baldur and Tyr.
Thus, Odin is not only the god of the dead in Valhalla, but generally the leader of the dead (as the older myth of the Wild Hunt puts it) in which all the spirits of the dead, led by Odin, ride through the night.
His entourage are 13 Ghost Warriors, the Valkyrjar and the Souls of the Fallen Warriors (Monarchs) who live in Valhall (Halled Fallen).
This gleaming hall stood in Gladsheim - in front of it the grove Glasir, whose trees bore golden leaves. Above the main door of the hall (which was so high that one could scarcely see its gable) hung a wolf as an icon of the war, above it an eagle. The hall itself - covered with shields over spear shafts - had 540 doors through which those 800 Einherjers walked when it came to the great fight with the Fenris Wolf (the warriors gather for Ragnaröck).
He was destined for those brave men who came to Odin after death on the Walstatt. Under Odin's presidency the Valkyries plentifully presented the Met.
