Mr. Wednesday is a mysterious and charismatic old man who recruits Shadow Moon as his bodyguard. He is actually Odin, the ancient god of Norse mythology. Mr. Wednesday is cunning, manipulative, and enigmatic, with a talent for charming and persuading others. He is on a quest to gather the old gods for a coming battle against the new gods, and his true motives are often shrouded in secrecy.


[“I’m a god, not the God. I don’t think I’m anything at all like the God of the Bible. In fact, I’m not sure who he is.”,”Immigrants, they get the job done.”,”A coin is as valuable as the conficence of the people that trade it.”]


Mr. Wednesday has a disheveled appearance, with one eye covered by an eyepatch. He exudes an aura of wisdom and mischief.
