In Germanic mythology, Odin (from Old Norse Óðinn) is a widely attested god. In Old Norse sources, whence most surviving information about the god stems, Odin is associated with healing, death, royalty, the gallows, knowledge, battle, sorcery, poetry, frenzy, and the runic alphabet, and is the husband of the goddess Frigg. In wider Germanic mythology and paganism, Odin was known in Old English as Wóden, in Old Saxon as Wōden, and in Old High German as Wuotan or Wodan, all stemming from the reconstructed Proto-Germanic theonym *wōđanaz.

Odin was the son of Bor and the Frost Giantess Bestia, Odin pined for the day he would ascend to his father's place as leader of the gods.  Odin's actions and traits reveal human nature in a way that, man wants to conquer the whole world and that man claims what he has not so as to have power over others.
