Odin was the chief divinity of the Norse pantheon, and the first of the Aesir. Odin is the son of Bor & Bestla. Odin is called the Alfadir, which translated means the "all father". With his wife goddess Frigg he is the father to Hod, Balder & Hermod, with the goddess Jord he is the father of Thor and with the giantess Grid he is the father of Vidar. Odin is the god of war and death, but alongside that he was also the god of poetry and wisdom. Odin can make the dead speak to reveal their wisdom. News is brought to Odin by Huginn and Muninn Odins Ravens. Odin has a spear called Gungnir that never misses, his eight footed steed Sleipnir carries him into battle. Two wolves Freki and Geri accompany Odin. On the day of the final battle the wolf Fenrir kills Odin.
