A Jotunn from Scandinavian mythology. He is the guardian of the Well of Wisdom which lies by the cosmic Yggdrasil tree. The great god Odin came to drink from the Well of Wisdom but Mimir made Odin leave one eye behind as payment. During one battle, Mimir was taken hostage and later beheaded by the Vanir. Odin retrieved the head and decided to keep it alive with magical herbs. From then on Mimir became the adviser of Odin.
