This idea I'd had for a drawing got me researching Heimdallr. He's sort of an anomaly as Norse gods go. He might be Vanir, and he seems to be weirdly connected to Indo-European stuff. And there's all this "head" and "ram" stuff. Somehow, he reads to me as being someone's main deity and co-opted by a different group. Sort of like Sebeq, or Ganesa.

What that leads me to wonder in turn, is whether Ragnarok as we know it is actually this combination of several different groups' apocalypses. You've got the wolves-swallow-sun-and-moon, wolf-swallows-Odin, Bragi-kills-wolf-as-weregild story line and you've got the Loki-kills-Heimdall-and-vice-versa story line.
