Odin led the Aesirians in fighting off the demons and achieved an overwhelming but heartbreaking victory.
That night, Thor received the good news from the Vanirian frontline that the demons had retreated and a personal letter from Freyr, who had decided to renounce his throne. Thor went to visit Odin with the letter. Odin the Fated Savior of All: I never imagined Freyr would give up... Well, that means you're becoming the uncontested top of the North. You deserve it without a shadow of doubt! Thor of Fulmination: No, Odin. The last battle showed me the truth. The leader of the Northern Union will be you. Summoner, am I right?
: Yes. Thor is incredibly strong, of course, but a leader should see beyond blind power and possess a determined mind. Odin is the one. Odin the Fated Savior of All: But I...if you all believe in me, I'll try. I'd protect the North with my life!
: 'Huh? My body is becoming more opaque... It is because Odin is uniting the North, as history should be?'
The North united and formed Northern Alliance. Odin became the leader and hoped more tribes would join them to gather military strength, which was necessary in the upcoming war to wipe out the demon race.
After months of working overnight, Odin finally finished all the work related to establishing the alliance. Odin the Fated Savior of All: Brother, our alliance worked out thanks to you. Now you go as far as to deal with the paperwork for me. I owe you a favour. Hm... How about dinner at my house? I promise Frigg's cooking will make your jaw drop!
: Really? I must give it a try then!
The Summoner accepted Odin's invitation and went to his place. The fragrance of food hit the Summoner's nose the moment he stepped in. Footsteps came from the corridor. It was Frigg coming to greet him. Frigg: Welcome. Dinner is ready. Come on in. Odin the Fated Savior of All: 'We haven't met in a while... Frigg looks a bit thinner...' Frigg: Odin said a guest would be dining with us tonight. I did not know what you fancied for dinner, so I made a variety of dishes. Help yourself...
: 'I-it's too much...
: 'It's enough to serve 10 people, but there are only three of us. Judging from Frigg's figure, I doubt she eats much... This is going to be tough on my stomach...' Odin the Fated Savior of All: Summoner don't waste food. It is from our Northern people who grew them with passion and sweat.
【Meet BOSS】 Odin the Fated Savior of All: Just a bit more left. Cheer up!
: 'I'd rather fight the evilest monsters than this...' Pumpkin Trio: Are you full already? You've got to eat more to defeat me!
【BOSS - Pumpkin Trio defeated】 Stardust Spirit: You've finished all the dishes. I love people who treasure food. Here, take it.
【BOSS - Pumpkin Trio retreated】 Pumpkin Trio: I don't reward those who waste food.
Odin and the Summoner burnt their souls out to finish every dish on the table. The Summoner held his swollen stomach while panting. Odin ate no less than him, but he still seemed unsatisfied. Odin the Fated Savior of All: Sigh... I'm going to visit some tribes to lobby for the alliance. I won't be able to taste your food for a long time. It's the saddest thing ever. Frigg: Odin... Can you not go? It's going to be dangerous. You don't have to do it in person. Just send Loki and Tyr. Odin the Fated Savior of All: Frigg, was that an insult? Frigg: No, it wasn't! Odin the Fated Savior of All: You're not acting like you. You've never tried to stop me from doing anything. Nothing can hold me back, and you know more than I do. Frigg: ...I'm sorry. It's my fault. Now would you excuse me. Odin the Fated Savior of All: Frigg, wait! She's gone... Did I do something wrong?
: Of course you did. She was just worrying about you and you blamed her for that. How inconsiderate! What are you still doing here? Go get her!
Frigg went away, saddened by Odin's gaffe. Hurried by the Summoner, Odin realized what he had done wrong. He chased Frigg to an arbour, and noticed tears spilling down her face. Odin the Fated Savior of All: 'Sigh... I've made her cry. She never cried even faced with the toughest times, and now... I've got to apologise!' Odin the Fated Savior of All: 'But an apology without a gift seems weak... Oh! I remember there are some luminous flowers around here. She always wanted to find one. She'd be happy if I got one for her.'
【Defeated BOSS】 Sheeny Antonia: Sob-sob. I didn't know the flower was a gift for your wife. You can have it.
Odin searched along the cliff. Soon, he found a twinkling luminous flower and picked it. He had intended to sneak up on Frigg, but she noticed before he could and turned around. Odin the Fated Savior of All: Ugh... You got me. Frigg: It's hard to ignore the clanking of your armour tapping on the ground... Where's our guest? Where are our manners if we leave him alone? Odin the Fated Savior of All: He asked me to come... I'm sorry for what I said... Here's a token of my apology. Frigg: This is...a luminous flower. It's beautiful. Thank you...but you were right. I knew you'd become 'Odin of the North' since the beginning. Odin the Fated Savior of All: Frigg... My body might belong to the North, but my soul is yours. When my flesh dies, my soul will follow you forever. Frigg: Odin...
: Ahem. I'm glad you guys have worked it out. I guess it's about time for me to leave. Odin the Fated Savior of All: It's getting dark. Why don't you stay the night?
Odin invited the Summoner to stay overnight. It might have been the unfamiliar bed, but the Summoner woke up at midnight. He gave up on sleep and strolled to the garden.
In the garden, he heard some rustling from the trees and saw a familiar shadow flick to the tunnel.
: 'Is that...Frigg? Why is she going uphill this late? There are many monsters in the mountains and she knows nothing about combat... It's worrying. I must protect her.
: 'Weird. It's the territory of the Northern Alliance. Why are there so many demons? Anyhow, I've got to get to her quick before anything happens to her!'
【Defeated BOSS】 Flame of Annihilation - Abadon: Dang it! I could've brought you to Beelzebub...
The Summoner ran along the mountain road and defeated the demons on the way with the heroic spirits. Finally, he reached the peak and found Frigg, who was staring at the galaxy with her fingers crossed.
The galaxy was glowing like a silvery dragon flying in the dark. Frigg: A clear starry night rarely happens. I came here for the good view. It's worth the walk. Look at the spectacular galaxy... Why are you frowning? Frigg: You worry about me. Relax. I grew up in the North. There's a secret path that's free of demons.
: But...I can't. What if you get hurt? That'd break Odin's heart. Odin the Fated Savior of All: Odin... Losing me might break his heart, but he'd still continue to protect the North. That's who he is. I might as well disappear for good...
: No! Odin needs you! It's your support that keeps him moving forward! Frigg: Sigh, sorry... Odin becoming the leader of the Northern Alliance has been worrying me. Frigg: My emotions were boiling over... I acted like another person... I think I just need some time. Can you keep this conversation a secret from Odin? I don't want to cause trouble for him.
: '...She looks troubled. Is she worrying about Odin...? No, it's not that simple. What's she pondering exactly?'
