All-wise

Norse - A dwarf. All-wise had been promised the hand of Freya but, when he arrived to claim her, Odin, who had been away from Asgard when the promise was made, saved Freya from this union. He said that he needed to test the dwarf's claim to great knowledge and kept him up all night answering questions about the gods and creation. He kept the questions going until the sun came up and its rays turned the dwarf into stone. A similar story is told of the dwarf (Alvis), Thor and his daughter Thrud. Also commonly known as All-wise, Alvis, Alvis or Alviss.
