Amongst his many deeds he carved out the northern world of Midgard from the body of the slain frost giant Ymir. To gain his vast wisdom, Odin subjected himself to a series of trials; hanging himself impaled upon his own spear from the sprawling world tree Yggdrasil for nine days and nights he had an illuminating revelation and discovered the Runes Of Power. He then traded one of his eyes for a drink from the Well Of Wisdom, Mimir.
