Quote1 I had a feeling we'd meet again. The witness. You, Watcher. All these eons staring and watching everything. So sanctimonious in your silence and your judgment. Have you come then at last to witness my greatest failure? Skadi awakens -- I fear the final prophesy is at hand, and there you stand, like a titanic, mute baby too dumb to be of use. Who are you to judge the All-Father? Am I to tremble at your appearance? Have you come to witness the breaking of worlds, then, in your morbid and cruel curiosity? Well? Well?!? Are you here to see a god die? Quote2
--Odin Borson (Earth-616)
Quote1 The Serpent is malevolence given form; he is terror given shape. ... His avatars carry with them weapons more mighty than any found on Earth. And they are driven by dire purposes we cannot fathom beyond the most simple: Spread fear! Spread terror! The Serpent has no interest in war -- his strategy is slaughter. And slaughter he shall. Again and again. And the minds of men will warp and break. Their very faiths will shatter...and their icons will fall... Quote2

I have faithfully served! I have proved myself worthy, even unto you! I have done what no other could!

Then I would give you another choice, an offer, a -- position of sorts. When they perish in the fields of war, you will carry the souls of deserving warriors to a place called Valhalla -- where they shall know everlasting peace. You will be their protector, and their guide, when they leave the mortal realm. ... But you will be more, as well. You will be a symbol. Men will commit great acts of bravery and sacrifice, for just the hope of glimpsing your face. You will inspire them. And I give you my word, girl, if you do this, one day, many ages from now, when your service is finished -- you will join your last love there, in paradise.
