Odin's Secrets

“He was clad in a blue cloak and gave his name as Grimnir (Hooded One), and said no more about himself though he was asked.”

– Lay of Grimnir

 

"Odin's Secrets" depicts Odin in his guise as Grimnir, the hooded one, wandering a wintery Midgard in search of his secret knowledge. Odin's two ravens Huginn (Thought) and Muninn (Memory), fly across Middle-Earth each day gathering all the happenings of the world to report to the All-Father. In addition to his ravens, Odin can commune with the dead. One of his most potent artifacts is the preserved head of Mimir, the dead god of knowledge and wisdom. Mimir's head whispers secrets that only the High One gets to know.
