Odin – The ruler and chief of the Aesir. Odin was a warrior, he was a magician, a traveler and a shaman. He is the reason for fury, for poetry and for the gift of knowledge. He is the main Chief god in the Norse pantheon and is also called the “all father” based on the Old Norse word: Alfǫðr. He is the one-eyed god, depicted with a beard, holding a spear named Gungnir. His companions were wolves and ravens. His ravens would travel around the nine worlds and tell him all of the things.. their names were Huginn and Muninn.
As for his wolves, their names were Geri & Freki. This warrior and magician of a god was seen traveling around on his steed, Sleipnir the eight legged horse and child of Loki the trickster god. Odin was a strong and furious warrior who is said to have never lost a single battle. Odin was the keeper of Asgard, but since he was a traveler and had the ability to shapeshift as he pleased, he loved to go and explore and find new knowledge.
He spoke in poems, and loved riddles, and was intimidated by nothing – not even a beast. Odin was recognized and commonly referred to in other Germanic languages: he was known as Wōden in Old English, Wōdan in Old Saxon, and as Wuotan and Wotan in Old German. The god’s name also lent itself to the word “Wednesday,” meaning “Wōden’s day.”
