Mr. Wednesday is one of the main characters from American Gods, by Neil Gaiman. He is (spoiler alert) an American incarnation of the Norse god, Odin, who was brought to the new world a thousand years ago by Viking settlers. Due to the “poor growing ground for gods” that is this continent, he has evolved to survive solely as a drifter and a con man. He is described as dressing in a light gray suit with a tie pin of Yggdrasil, the World Tree, and he seems to eat a lot of rare steaks (a nod to his connection to wolves). Also, he wears a glass eye.
