All father is the same of the head of the Catholic Church (controller of the order) in the preacher series... He's the opposite of Odin though (more inversion/an inside joke/jab possibly).

*Name

It's a great show. But in interacting with it's cast on Twitter they're pozzed or comped (as all actors seem to be).

Was Odin a man?

""Odin and his wife had a prophecy, and it revealed to him that his name would be exalted in the northern part of the world and would be honored above the names of all kings. Therefore, he set out to set off on a journey ..." Odin and his people were glorified and taken for gods, the story goes. Edda. And so they came north to the land of the Saxons. Odin left three sons to rule the country. One of them was named Vegdeg. He remained in the eastern country of the Saxons. Odin's second son was called Beldeg, or Balder. The present Westphalia belonged to him. Odin's third son, Sigi, ruled the land that was later called the country of the Franks, and the Wolsung family originated from him. One set out on a further journey and reached a country called Reidgotland. Odin made its ruler his son Skjeld. From him comes the Skjeldung clan. These are Danish kings and the country later became known as Jutland. Then Odin reached the country that is now called Sweden. Then it was ruled by Gyulvi. He went out to meet Odin and said that he could rule in his state as soon as he wanted."
Says much the same thing in the Oera Linda [053-054] "and so they shortly arrived in Skeanland. When the brothers of the north had joined him, Wodin divided his powerful army into three. ‘Frya!’ was their war cry, and he thus drove back the Finns and Magyars as if they were children.
When the magus heard how his men were all being slain, he sent messengers with scepter and crown. They said to Wodin: ‘O you, greatest of all kings! We are guilty, but all that we have done was done from necessity. You think that we took on your brothers willingly, but we were whipped forth by our enemies, who are still at our heels. We often asked your burg maiden for help, but she ignored us. The magus says that if we kill half our numbers in fighting with each other, the wild herdsmen will come and kill us off completely. The magus possesses great riches, but he has seen that Frya is more powerful than all our spirits combined. He will lay down his head in her lap. You are the most heroic king on earth, your folk are of iron. Become our king, and we shall willingly be your slaves. What honor it would be for you if you could drive back the savages! Our trumpets would resound with it and our praises would precede you everywhere.’
Wodin was strong, fierce and heroic, but he was not clear sighted, Therefore, he was caught in their trap and crowned by the magus. Quite a lot of steersmen and land warriors who disapproved of this turn left quietly, taking Kate with them. But Kate, who did not wish to appear before either the mother or the general assembly, jumped overboard. Then a storm arose and lashed the ships down upon the banks of the Denmarks, not sparing a single man. Later, this strait was named Kate's Gate."

Oera Linda tradition is critical of Odin, unlike many of other Norse lores: "Wodin was strong, fierce and heroic, but he was not clear-sighted. Therefore, he was caught in their trap and crowned by the magus. Quite a lot of steersmen and land warriors who disapproved of this turn left quietly" (054-055).
In Oera Lind tradition Wodin gets a military victory, but eventually succumbs to the Magy rule. Whereas in other Norse traditions, Odin the supreme king conquers a Finno-Swedish king Gylfi/Gylve and has a child with Finno-Russian princess Rindr (rinta 'chest', e.g. tinarinta 'tin-chest' or 'jewelry-chest'). Thus if the whole Havamal is of Odinic doctrine and centres on his erotic adventures (of the Norse sagas), the text of course would not view the world in continental Fryan mindset.

Saxo Grammaticus, Gesta Danorum: "When he [Odin] had retired, one Mit-othin, who was famous for his juggling tricks, was likewise quickened, as though by inspiration from on high, to seize the opportunity of feigning to be a god; and, wrapping the minds of the barbarians in fresh darkness, he led them by the renown of his jugglings to pay holy observance to his name. He said that the wrath of the gods could never be appeased nor the outrage to their deity expiated by mixed and indiscriminate sacrifices, and therefore forbade that prayers for this end should be put up without distinction, appointing to each of those above his especial drink-offering. But when Odin was returning, he cast away all help of jugglings, went to Finland to hide himself, and was there attacked and slain by the inhabitants. Even in his death his abominations were made manifest, for those who came nigh his barrow were cut off by a kind of sudden death; and after his end, he spread such pestilence that he seemed almost to leave a filthier record in his death than in his life: it was as though he would extort from the guilty a punishment for his slaughter. The inhabitants, being in this trouble, took the body out of the mound, beheaded it, and impaled it through the breast with a sharp stake; and herein that people found relief.
