God of magic, wisdom and war
Odin ' Germanic also Wotan ' is ultimate father of the gods in the Nordic and Germanic mythology. He combines wisdom and magic, but also treachery and war in himself. So he goes unrecognized among the people and the gods to learn their secrets and stories. Odin was the wise and powerful head of all gods. Thus he was worshipped for his strength and fighting spirit on the one hand and appreciated as a source of knowledge and the search for knowledge on the other.
Odin, Sleipner and his other magical companions
The father of the gods, Odin, has many magical companions. His eight-legged Ross Sleipner can glide equally fast on earth, in the air and on the water. There are always his two ravens, Hugin and Munhim, who tell him daily the world events. With the help of his wishing coat Odin becomes invisible, while a severed giant head predicts the future. The wolves Geri and Freki bring him his hunting luck and with his sword Gungnir Odin started the first war in the world.
