The Odin was a Terran Dominion heavy combat walker. It was the prototype for the smaller thor.

DesignEdit

The Odin is designed for prolonged front line duty. It is armed with two twin-linked T800 cannons, shoulder-mounted Hellfire missile pods, four 330mm howitzers, and at least one nuclear missile. The chassis is commensurately durable. The walker is well-suited to spearhead assaults on entrenched positions. The crew space includes a toilet.[1]

HistoryEdit

DevelopmentEdit

Odin CollateralDamage Art1

Odin at Simonson

Project Odin was the most significant Terran Dominion military development since the Brood War. It was developed at the Simonson Munitions Factory on Korhal under a complete security lockdown; the workers were effectively all under arrest to prevent any leak of information.[2]

The project cost millions of credits.[3]

Simonson received shipments of battlecruiser-weight neosteel armor, and testing produced seismic shocks and electromagnetic discharges detectable from without.[2] In 2503[4], and with no further information, Umojan agent Pandora infiltrated the facility as part of a group of visiting officials and discovered the Odin undergoing testing. The intrusion was discovered, but Pandora escaped to warn the Protectorate. The Protectorate planted information implicating the Koprulu Liberation Front.[2]

Shortly afterwards, the Odin was moved to the Valhalla installation.[2]

In the FieldEdit

"It followed me home...can I keep it?"

The Odin in an assembly gantry on Valhalla

The Odin's official unveiling occurred during the Second Great War, but was co-opted by Raynor's Raiders to expose Arcturus Mengsk's war crimes.[5] Prior to the ceremony, the Raiders stole the walker and used it to destroy Valhalla.[1] It arrived at the unveiling on Korhal masquerading as a Dominion unit. The Odin spearheaded the surprise attack, and the Raiders publicly broadcast Mengsk's war crimes via UNN Studios. Tychus Findlay piloted the walker on both occasions. Rory Swann reverse engineered a less-expensive version of the thor from the Odin.[5]

The Raiders abandoned the walker and it was recovered by the Dominion. The Odin was later deployed to defend the Korhal Palace in Augustgrad during the Swarm invasion of Korhal and was subsequently destroyed.[6] The palace fell and Emperor Mengsk was killed.[7]

The Odin

"So how does the Odin rate as a fighting machine?"
"Brother... it is the single greatest creation in the history of mankind. Stridin' around dispensin' righteous fury just about brought a tear to my eye."

The Odin is a hero version of the thor. The Odin is uncontrollable in "Engine of Destruction".[1]

In "Media Blitz", the walker is controllable but lacks the nuclear missile ability, and cannot be transported by a dropship or a Hercules dropship. It damages civilian units and structures by walking over them. If destroyed, it leaves behind wreckage (with 2500 hit points, but no abilities, not even the Immortality Protocol). Findlay ejects and the mission continues, although the player is left bereft of their hero.[5]

Unlike the regular thors, the Odin's anti-air attack does not do splash damage. However, its ground attack does do splash damage, though not over a very large area. It does not gain HP or attack rate bonuses due to Vanadium Plating or Ultra Capacitors.

DevelopmentEdit

The following section contains information from a previous version of StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty which is no longer valid.

The Odin originally had two additional abilities; Automated Repair and EMP Burst.

Automated Repair regenerated 125 life per second for a duration of 8 seconds when activated. EMP Burst worked much in the same as the psionic shockwave ability used by the queen in the mission "Belly of the Beast", with the exception that it only stunned mechanical units (including structures).[8]

Heroes of the StormEdit

The following section contains information from Heroes of the Storm and is not canon to StarCraft continuity

The Odin can be used by Findlay in Heroes of the Storm.[9]

NotesEdit

Odin SC2-WoL Game2

Odin missive

The Odin is derived from the very powerful and bulky thor unit of StarCraft II. It is actually the first thor model used.

Odin was the one-eyed chief god in Norse mythology. Like said god, the Odin pilot is missing his left eye.
