Every morning at sunrise he sends them off to fly throughout all of the nine realms to gather information on what is happening. In the evening they return to Odin in Asgard and tell him everything that they have seen and heard.Before men were given life and before Odin's two ravens, there were Freki and Geri. Odin created two mythical wolves, a female and a male, to keep him company in the Pantheon of Viking Gods and to keep Midgard under protection. These two wolves inhabited the world on their travels with Odin. Geri and Freki in Norse mythology are Odin's wolves, to whom the god feeds them when he is in Valhalla while he drinks wine.The two wolves played a very important role in human origins! Legends say that the two wolves nurtured the first humans and acted as both foster parents and teachers.When Odin created human being, he told them to learn from Geri and Freki's values: courage, love, wisdom and taking care of the members of his pack. Since this time, some Vikings tribes worship the wolf.Gungnir, which means ‘swaying’ in Old Norse, was a Spear that belonged to Odin, and was made by the dwarves, the master craftsmen of Norse mythology.
