The god of war and wisdom
According to some traditions, a huge statue of Odin stands guard at the entrance to a huge temple made of ice and snow. Many other traditions tell of a statue of a sea person adorning the entrance. Both would make sense: Odin as the highest Nordic deity or the sea people who have immortalised themselves in the ice.
In honour of the Nordic father of the gods Odin, the Vikings built an enormous temple in the ever-present ice – high up in the north of Rulantica. According to legend, Odin allowed a gruesome creature back into the temple. This creature serves as a constant warning for the guardians of the source: if they neglect their duties, and if people drink from the secret source of life, Odin will awaken the creature from its icy sleep. Mercy for the sea people if this happens!
