History

Odin is a Norse god who meets up with other gods to discuss and find a way to stop the Apocalypse. He is of a laid back disposition towards the Apocalypse, believing it to be a "slap fight between a couple of angels." He believes the real Apocalypse to be when the Midgard Serpent Jörmungandr rises up, and Odin himself will be consumed by a big wolf. He was evidently incorrect about his own demise, as Lucifer kills him in the hotel's hallway.

5.19 Hammer of the Gods

Odin meets up with the other gods at the Elysian Fields Hotel. He points out that "the real Apocalypse" is when he's consumed by a giant wolf. He exclaims to Zao Shen that his beliefs are rubbish. When Lucifer arrives, he attacks him but is overpowered. He cries in pain until Lucifer kills him.

Odin in Lore

Odin is considered the chief god in Norse mythology and the ruler of Asgard. His name is related to ōðr, meaning "fury, excitation," besides "mind," or "poetry." His role, like many of the Norse gods, is complex. He is considered a principal member of the Æsir (Norse Pantheon) and is associated with wisdom, war, battle, and death, and also magic, poetry, prophecy, victory, and the hunt. The depiction of Odin in Supernatural notably veers from the standard mythology in that Odin appears to have two eyes instead of one, which he sacrificed to get a sip from Well of Mimir to gain tremendous wisdom and knowledge.
