Odin (Aesir)

All-Father; God of War, Death, Wisdom and of Poetry
Spear, Eye

Odin is the leader of the Aesir(Aesthir). He is father and King of the gods and goddesses of the Norse mythology. He has several halls called Gladsheim Valaskjalf and Valhalla . Odin’s high seat, Hlidskialf, was in Valaskjalf. It was from this throne that he could see over the entire world.
Odin also has two ravens that serve him as messengers and extend his vision. Their names are Hugin and Munin (Thought and Memory). These birds sit upon Odin’s shoulders.

Odin hung on the Yggdrasil tree for nine days and nights and was pierced by a spear. He fasted during this whole ordeal. He also pawned one of his eyes for a drink of the Spring of Mimir. This is how he became known as "One Eye".
