Odin, the Allfather, was the premier Norse deity, at once a magnetic and polarizing figure whose influence permeated all aspects of society. He was acknowledged as being the father of many great warriors and kings along with being the ruler of Midgard. As ruler of Midgard, Odin and his Valkyries carry half of those slain in battle daily to the hallowed halls of Valhalla in preparation for Ragnarök.
Odin is known for wandering through the cosmos in search of greater knowledge and sorcery, and being a practitioner of shamanism. Odin is said to have hanged himself on the cosmological tree Tggdrasil for nine days to gain knowledge of the runic alphabet, which he later passed on to humanity.
