Huginn and Muninn are relative to Old Norse Mythology as Messengers to The Great God Odin. Seen as Black Ravens, they fly over The Earth and gather information on activities and events and convey them back to Him. The term ''Huginn'' is translated from The Norse to mean ''Thought'' while ''Muninn'' means ''Memory''. Seen as ''Gods'' in their own right, Ravens were highly prizes and looked after by The Norse. Although their mythos is possible older, Huginn and Muninn were first written of in the 13th Century AD by Icelandic Scholars.
