Odin is the god of many things. He is also a god known by many names. However, most particular to his nature are the concepts of wisdom and sacrifice. Odin, through his own sacrifices, gains wisdom during many occasions and ordeals. In one such occasion, the lore tells us how Odin lost his eye so that he could drink from Urd’s Well. It was the price he had to pay to allow the giant Mimir to offer him a horn from the well. This sacrifice would gain Odin true wisdom.
