Odin Odin is one of the most complex and enigmatic characters in Norse mythology, and perhaps in all of world literature. Hes the chief of the Aesir tribe of deities, yet he often ventures far from their kingdom, Asgard, on long, solitary wanderings throughout the cosmos on purely self-interested quests. Hes a relentless seeker after and giver of wisdom, but he has little regard for communal values such as justice, fairness, or respect for law and convention. Hes the divine patron of rulers, and also of outcasts.
Hes a war-god, but also a poetry-god, and he has prominent transgender qualities that would bring unspeakable shame to any traditional Norse/Germanic warrior. Hes worshiped by those in search of prestige, honor, and nobility, yet hes often cursed for being a fickle trickster.
What kind of literary figure let alone a god whose historical worshipned much of a continent and several centuries could possibly embody all of these qualities at once, with their apparently glaring contradictions?
