Aesir. Odin used his magic to preserve Mimir's head and often consulted the
beheaded god for advice and wisdom. This story is told only in Snorri Sturluson's

2. Odin's. Gold. Gods and Giants were cousins. They all sprang out of the wastes
of chaos when fire and ice mixed explosively into crude blobs of something
