Valfreya:

The weakest of the Twelve is far more powerful and dangerous than any two lesser Gods as the mantle of rank grants tremendous might and only the best can hope to enjoy the title for long or can handle the intense responsibility over the cosmos.

Odin has remained as the highest for nearly a thousand years and was one of the Three Most High who led the battle against Ymir in the first Titan war and used the Titan’s lifeforce to craft the Nine Worlds into their current form and imprison most of the other Titans until recently.

Uller has stood as the Highest in Odin’s stead in ancient times and more recently during the retreat from Midgard a thousand years ago and is trusted as leader while Odin or Frygga is unavailable.

Wayland, Brigid, and Kunnalfa share aspects of the “art of making” and their Scions tend to either work together extremely well or become dangerous rivals. Those who focus on exquisite design, high cost, and high production value tend to follow Brigid while pragmatic mass production and good value tends to be the mindset of Kunnalfa. Wayland creates the initial ideas, research, and inventions that both Goddesses use in their creations. In the past he crafted many of the mightiest relics of the Aesir and worked closely with Dvergar smiths during the second Titan war and became a prominent king in Elfame during his rise as the first Scion to achieve full Apotheosis. His exact lineage remains unknown.

A Scion of Kunnalfa’s  “recent” influence in the invention of the atomic bomb has had a large social impact on the Nine Worlds leading to even more dangerous weapons.

The Twelve Most High stand in power where once the Twelve Titans of Antiquity did.
