He is High God of the Aes, highest and first deity, god of poetry, of knowledge, of magic, heaven and war god and god of death. As a storm god, he is the leader of Wuotan army.
Odin, the finder of the runes, god of the Rune wisdom and patron god of the Skalds.Odin, the all-father, son of the Burr and the giantess Bestla.
Together with his brothers Hönir and Lodur Odin created the first human couple, Askr and Embla, and gave them the soul. He sits on his throne Hlidskialf in the hall Walaskialf in the castle Asgard and can observe the whole world from there. He is all that is said and what is being done. Odin is assisted by the ravens Hugin (thought) and Munin (remembrance), who return each morning from their journey to tell Odin news from the world. Likewise, the two wolves Geri (greedy) and Freki (voracious) 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 comes from his golden ring Draupnir, from which every nine days eight more rings drip.
In combat, he relies on the spear Gungnir, who never misses the target.
The mythical wife of Odin is Frigg, whose old German name Frija is identical to the Nordic goddess Freyja. Also in the Edda Frigg is identified with Freyja. His wife gave birth to his sons Thor, Balder and Tyr.
Thus Odin is not only the god of the fallen in Valhalla, but generally the leader of the dead, as the older myth of the Wild Hunt expresses, in which all the spirits of the dead ride under the guidance of Odin through the night.
His entourage are 13 ghost warriors, the Valkyrjar, and the souls of the fallen warriors, the singers who reside in Valhalla (Hall of the Fallen).
This gleaming hall stood in Gladsheim, before 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, a wolf was hanging as a symbol of the war, above it an eagle. The hall itself, with shields over spear shafts, had 540 doors, through which every 800 Einherjers strode, when it came to the great fight with the Fenris Wolf (The warriors rallied 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 poured out the mead.
