I want you to kill the man who murdered my son. I want you to kill... Arthur Pendragon.
Odin to Myror[src]

King Odin is the monarch of a kingdom beside a shorew which is one of Albion's many kingdoms. He wants revenge on Arthur for killing his son.

History

He planned to have Arthur Pendragon killed by the notorious assasin Myror. Odin is fuelled by grief over the death of his only son, who was slain by Arthur in a duel while trying to prove his valour. When Uther learned of the plot he desired to go to war with Odin. However, Arthur dissuaded his father from taking action on the grounds that he would have similar sentiments if he (Arthur) were killed (The Once and Future Queen).

On their way to Morgause's lair, Arthur and Merlin were attacked by several of Odin's men who were swiftly defeated by the duo (The Sins of the Father).

Over a year later, a series of skirmishes to the north of Camelot led Uther to suspect that Odin was testing Camelot's defenses (Queen of Hearts).

Yet another year later, Odin sent an assassin, the Gleeman to assassinate Arthur, disguised as a entertainer in a circus group that had come to Camelot for Arthur's birthday celebrations. Although the assassin failed to kill Arthur, he succeeded in mortally wounding Uther who, despite the best efforts, died (The Wicked Day).

Shortly afterwards, Odin commenced a series of raids on Camelot 's northern borders (Aithusa).

Agravaine told Arthur that his victory against Caerleon was not enough to deter the likes of Odin and Bayard and the countless others who covet Camelot's wealth, suggesting that he should force Caerleon to accept a treaty on his terms (His Father's Son).

An envoy from Odin was later sent to Camelot, suggesting possibility of a better relationship between Odin and Arthur (The Secret Sharer).

A letter from Odin's court was found on the body of Eoghan, the mapmaker's apprentice. It was presumably planted by Agravaine in order to shift blame from him, as he had ordered Eoghan to steal a map of the siege tunnels for him (The Hunter's Heart).

Personality

Odin seemed to be a vengeful and stubborn person as he made continous efforts to get his revenge on Arthur for the death of his son. Nonetheless all plans have failed to bring him down. Odin also seemed to be a coward as he twice hired an assassin to do the job for him.

Abilities

None is known of Odin's abilities although, like all kings, he would have definitely been trained with a sword. The fact that his son duelled with Arthur indicates that his son inherited his swordskills from him, although not much information is known about the duel.
