Odin was a god of war, but was contained with wisdom. He had a eight-legged horse named Sleipnir and the spear, Gungnir. He had a magicial gold-ring called Draupnir,with the ability to multiply itself: Every ninth night, eight new rings 'drip' from Draupnir, each one of the same size and weight as the original.
He was assisted with his two ravens,Huginn and Muninn (Thocht an Mindin) that told him about the informations of the world.
He lost one of his eyes for wisdom.
