Myth/NorseMythology. Usually referred to as 'the Allfather', 'Old One-eye' or 'the Ferryman' [[IHaveManyNames and two hundred additional names]]. Not evil, but doubtlessly a {{Badass}} and capable of scary [[WellIntentionedExtremist extremism]] sometimes, especially when it came to his love of hunting and sacrifice. Some of his names translate into "Chooser of the Slain", "God of the Slain", "Ruler of the Gallows" and "Visitor of the Hanged". Naming Him directly might bring you unwanted attention.
