I don't know what everybody's getting so worked up about. It's just a couple of angels having a slap-fight.
— Odin referring to Michael and Lucifer.
in Hammer of the Gods

Odin was the chief pagan deity of the Norse pantheon. While on Earth he took the form of an elderly American man in a bomber jacket with a strong Midwest accent.

HistoryEdit

Before the First Heavenly Civil War, Odin and Loki had a "spat" which resulted in Loki being trapped in a cage with a snake dripping venom in his eyes. The Archangel Gabriel freed Loki.

Season 5Edit

Odin was one of the deities who met with the other deities, to try to work out a way to stop the Apocalypse. He was of a laid back disposition towards the whole thing, believing it to be a "slap fight between a couple of angels". He briefly got into an argument with Zao Shen when he began mocking the latter's world turtle.

Odin said nothing during Gabriel's arrival and watched silently when Kali seemingly killed him.

Odin's casual arrogance towards the angels cost him his life when Lucifer killed him in the Elysian Fields Hotel hallway. He was last seen screaming on the floor in pain.

Season 13Edit

In Unfinished Business, Loki reveals that he sold Gabriel to the Prince of Hell Asmodeus in revenge for Lucifer killing Odin, something that he blames on Gabriel. Loki states that while Odin hated him, he was still Loki's father and Loki loved him.

Powers and AbilitiesEdit

As a deity, Odin possessed several abilities common to his kind.

LoreEdit

Odin1

Odin depicted in a book.

In Germanic mythology, Odin is a widely revered god. He is associated with healing, death, royalty, the gallows, knowledge, battle, sorcery, poetry, frenzy, and the runic alphabet. He is the husband of the goddess Frigg.

In Old Norse texts, Odin is depicted as one-eyed and long-bearded, frequently wielding a spear named Gungnir, and wearing a cloak and a broad hat. He is often accompanied by his animal companions—the wolves Geri and Freki and the ravens Huginn and Muninn, who bring him information from all over Midgard—and Odin rides the flying, eight-legged steed Sleipnir across the sky and into the underworld.

Odin is attested as having many sons, most famously the god Baldur, though this fact was not mentioned in Supernatural, despite the two appearing in the same episode.

TriviaEdit

  • Odin claimed both the existence of Jormungandr and Fenrir. Additionally, he also mocked Zao Shen's world turtle, indicating it may also exist or had existed at one point in time.
  • Odin is said to be killed by the giant wolf Fenris during the battle of Ragnarok. The Maw of Fenris was a werewolf cult in which Garth's mother-in-law and her relatives were members of in Sharp Teeth.
  • Duncan Fraser, the actor who portrayed Odin, also portrayed Clive in There's No Place Like Home.
  • W. Morgan Sheppard, father of Mark Sheppard, the actor who portrayed Crowley, voiced Odin in the Disney animated series Gargoyles.
