The Son of Nine Mothers:

Heimdall is the god who guards the point where Bifrost, the rainbow bridge, meets Asgard, the home of the Norse gods. According to the Prose Edda, he is the child of nine sisters, each of whom birthed a part of the infant god. Heimdall is possessed of keen hearing and eyesight, as well as foreknowledge of things that are going to happen. He is the owner of the golden horn Gjallarhorn, which he will blow at the beginning of Ragnarok, when the golden rooster Gullinkambi crows.
