The latest installment of the Assassin’s Creed franchise is all about Vikings and Norse mythology. In this adventure, you explore the world of those times and meet characters that you may already know if you’ve studied about Norse mythology or watched the TV show Vikings. Names like Rollo, Ragnar, Odin, Loki and more will be familiar to you already but there’s also Havi. But who is AC Valhalla’s Havi in Norse Mythology? Here’s the explanation and its reference in the game.
Assassin’s Creed Valhalla: Who is Havi in Norse Mythology?
Havi is a form of Hár which is a name of Odin and Odin is the main god or Allfather in Norse mythology. This god has a lot of names in Old Norse records and Havi is one of them which means High One. Another name that Odin has is Brother of Vili which is also mentioned in the game’s Snotinghamscire section. Plus, in the lore of Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, Odin and Eivor’s fates are intertwined so that’s one of the reasons why he’s referred to as Havi.
Why the High One, you ask? It could be a sneaky reference to the fact that Eivor has to consume a mushroom which takes him/her to Asgard which is when he/she is the “high” one. And of course, the more straightforward reason is that since Odin is the chief god, the High One makes complete sense. Also, because you can choose a male or female Eivor for your playthrough, the name Havi ends up suiting either way. So, when you go to Asgard, you will play as Havi. Here are a few guides that feature Havi in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla like how to unseal the Well of Urd and how to beat the Builder boss with easy tricks.
So, that’s the very basic of who is AC Valhalla’s Havi in Norse Mythology. If you are curious to know what else you can do in Asgard and Jotunheim, check out our AC Valhalla wiki.
