|Republic of Odin|
|Game||Tales of Phantasia|
The Republic of Odin (オーディーン共和国 Oodiin-kyouwakoku?) is one of the three powerful countries that governed over the world of Aselia during the period between Tales of Symphonia and Tales of Phantasia. It was destroyed by comet Samier's collision with the planet, and now all that remains are relics and a single, mysterious tower.
Odin is said to have been located in Aselia's easternmost region, where the continent of Freyland is now. It is mentioned in certain events that this continent was once beautiful and fruitful, but wars ravaged the land and left it as a desert wasteland. The Tower of Flames is the only remnant of the past, as it stands tall in Freyland's Lava Plains and is surrounded by mountains and lava. The tower is inaccessible except by air.
Odin was one of the world's superpowers at its height, alongside the Kingdom of Fenrir and Thor. Unlike Aselia's present countries, it was not a monarchy, but a republic. It saw its last days under President Mitsumori after war erupted on December 2 between it and Fenrir. Not long after Thor sank into the sea due to the comet Samier's impact, mysterious men appeared and ended the war by annihilating both parties. As with the other countries, it wielded an item that became known as the one of the Three Weapons, the base of the Eternal Sword: the fire blade Flamberge, guarded by Flamberge in the Tower of Flames and said to contain the soul of the god Odin.
- In Norse mythology, Odin is the leader of the Aesir, the major group of Norse deities; ruler of Asgard; and god associated with wisdom, war, poetry, and death. He is also the father of Thor and Vidarr. In battle, he wields the spear, Gungnir. In addition, he commands female warriors known as Valkyries.
