Hœnir standing silently
He is sometimes confused with Vili. Hœnir and Mímir were hostages in a war between the Æsir and Vanir gods. He is an original Æsir god. Hœnir usually relied on Mímir. Hœnir is the travel companion of Odin and Loki, he was also a part of the creation of Ask and Embla.
Hœnir also goes with Mímir to the Vanir as hostage, in order to seal a truce to the Æsir-Vanir war. During the negotiations, Hœnir heavily relies on Mímir to address any query as the latter was better informed and knowledgeable. The Vanir perceive this as indecision and thus a character flaw, and end up beheading Mímir as retaliation, thinking the gods cheated them in the hostage exchange. Hœnir is one of the few gods to survive Ragnarök.
