Well, if they are trying to creatye gungnir(again) they will need Eiktobel's help because she was the only one who knows about the Final rune and has the potential to use its full power(well, she is the only valkyrie discovered till now). We can expect that Odin will try to use the donati horoscope to increase the power of the dwarf girl, so we have the chance to see Birdway and there's a chance we will see Patricia again.

Anyway, if the girl has the dwarf attribute then she can transform into a dragon like fafnir?

But I like more the alf more because in Norse mythology the original seior was a half elf and she could summon dead warriors, reference to necromancers (they are not so cute anymore right!!?)

It's the same name, just in a different language, that's why none of us were surprised the name 'Odin' sudden;y pops up.

Brush up on your Norse Mythology

The reason why it said Mjolnr could destroy the Midgard Serpent is because in the story of Ragnarok, Thor was the one to kill it.

Different language? You're gonna have to be more specific for this lowly peasant to understand.

Which is why, in the novel, Ollerus uses HliūskjŠlf in the novel despite that is Wōđinazs's throne.

But eventually Wōđinaz uses bribery to take back his position and chased out Ollerus. Ollerus eventually fled to Sweden but got killed by Danish in the end.

This explains why, in the novel, Ollerus said his position was taken over by Wōđinaz.

Edit- Had some quick look in the text, found the actual Proto-Germanic spelling of the name: Wōđinaz

But Thor died as well, talking about references I feel Odin wants to free himself from his fate, getting killed by Fenrir.

Has anyone did a search about a table or a wardrobe related to Norse Mythology?

In the actual novel, it is written as Othinus but pronounce as Odin.
Like how Accelerator's name is written as One Way Road.

Othinus is actually Odin's name used in the book Gesta Danorum, which tells the Danish history using Norse Gods as characters.

Birdway, you make a wonderful villian.
So that girl is one of the advanced people who made the weapons of the Norse Gods mentioned in Stiyl's SS?

I'm surprisingly numb about the whole thing, maybe it's because for most of the other chapters my mind was on Saronia and not her.

Well there seem to be some obvious Fate/Zero influence in this volume.

If you want to stretch it far, Kamijou's limped left arm mimics Saber's current predicament with her left hand

I don't feel anything, maybe it needed a gross description to make it more frightening like Vol. 3.
