Also known as Wodenaz, Wodan, Wuotan - Woden is the Seax God. It is generally believed that he was thought of as a sky deity - perhaps a wind or storm god with great wisdom and powers over life and death. He had great skill as magician or sorcerer (Galdorcraeftig) and also a shape shifter. He is also seen in Norse mythology as Odin, the Supreme Deity, son of Bor and Bestla.
Woden was bearded, wore a long cloak and either a hood or a floppy-brimmed hat. He leaned upon a huge spear as he walked. He it was who introduced the runic form of writing. While personified as Odin in Norse mythology he was in fact very different from Odin. Woden wasn't concerned with organising battalions of slain warriors, but more with walking the rolling downs and watching over his (living) people.
