Odyn is one of the titan Keepers and the ruler of the Valarjar in the Halls of Valor. Once the Prime Designate of Azeroth, he was cursed by his daughter  Helya to be trapped in the Halls of Valor along with his army. Despite his curse, Odyn could still leave the halls in the form of a vrykul named Havi as shown repeatedly, or under his true form in short bursts.
Among the vrykul, Odyn is worshipped as a storm god He is stated to follow the Light by the Bronzebeard brothers, with his Val'kyr shieldmaidens being referred to as warriors of the Light.
Odyn is one of the titan-forged who were empowered by the Pantheon and thus became Keepers. He led the titan-forged armies against the forces of the Old Gods. He was imbued with the powers of  Aman'Thul. Together with  Tyr, he battled and defeated  Ragnaros the Firelord and devised the final plan to bring down Yogg-Saron. For his leadership, determination and courage, he was granted the title of Prime Designate, leader of the titan-forged on Azeroth, and was tasked with watching Yogg-Saron's prison and maintaining the  Forge of Wills. Odyn gifted Hymdall with the Gjallarhorn, and if it is sounded, the Keepers are oathbound to answer its call, as it signals that the end times are upon Azeroth.
When the other Keepers decided to ask the Pantheon to empower the Dragon Aspects for their heroism against Galakrond, Odyn was vehemently against it, stating that only titan-forged could be trusted to defend Azeroth, as he did not trust the proto-dragons. He sought to create his own elite army, one of steadfast and valiant stature, and saw the vrykul to be the most desirable candidate for his army. The Aspects were empowered despite his objections, and so Odyn took a section of Ulduar and raised it into the sky, creating the Halls of Valor, and in doing so relinquished his position of Prime Designate. Odyn sacrificed his eye to Mueh'zala, an ally of Zovaal the Jailer, in exchange for the ability to peer into the Shadowlands. When Odyn gazed into the Shadowlands, he saw the kyrian and was inspired by them to make something similar for himself.
Odyn told the vrykul that those who died a worthy death in battle would have their spirits brought to the Halls and given new immortal bodies infused with the power of the storm to fight as his Valarjar, which Odyn thought would be better defenders than the dragons. In order to retrieve the spirits of the deceased, Odyn would need vrykul to volunteer to become Val'kyr - inspired by the Kyrian he had seen - and take those heroic vrykul spirits from the Shadowlands. The vrykul objected, and Odyn's adopted daughter, the titan-forged Helya, tried to talk him out of it. Instead, Odyn transformed Helya into the first Val'kyr and ordered her to do the job for him. Odyn would later lie to his followers that Helya's transformation had been due to her own arrogance: he claimed that during their argument, she had reached out for the power of the Shadowlands and subsequently gotten sucked into the realm, destroying her body and transforming her into a twisted wraith before he managed to pull her out and that she had subsequently apologized and begged him to make her a Val'kyr.
Helya nursed resentment against Odyn for thousands of years, until the day Loken, a Keeper manipulated by Yogg-Saron, convinced her to turn against him. Helya used the same magic that had been used to lock the Elemental Plane to seal Odyn and his Valarjar army inside the Halls of Valor, and then decided to take vrykul souls in her new realm Helheim. Helya would be replaced by Eyir as the leader of the Val'kyr, and Loken would go on to steal Odyn's title of Prime Designate.
