Text: Signature image of Wotan War God, by George Stuart.

Limited by his vision of protection for his kind.

In his primary guise as a warrior god, Wotan, a.k.a. Odin or Woden. He carries his magic spear Gungnir, along the staff of which is inscribed his deadly contract with the Frost Giants. Wotan is blind in one eye, having given it toe the Well of All Knowing for its wisdom. His long blue robe represents the heavens with its clouds and stars. Wotan is always accompanied by his ravens who keep him informed of all that goes on. Warned by the Norns that the time has come for the gods, Wotan's first concern is to save his devine family.
