Do you know these names?

For a writing assignment whose intended audience was sci-fi/fantasy readers I told a story from the point of view of a young woman named Tara. In it she talked with her brother Jev, Vin, and her Uncle (who was with two females dressed in black) about people and how difficult it is to get people as a group to accept change for the betterment of all. There is a lot of conversation about truth, perception & spirituality. Near the end you find out that the full names of the characters are : Jehovah, Vishnu, Odin & Ostra. Now my instructor had no clue who these people are. My Question: Do you?

  • Jehovah is Jesus, the christian and jewish Messiah. Vishnu is the Hindu "Supreme God", Right? Odin if I remember correctly was the Father of the Gods from Norse Mythology. I don't have any idea about Ostra though. Unless you meant Odin and Ostra together in which case I still am clueless

    God of wisdom, war, battle, and death, and also magic, poetry, prophecy, victory, and the hunt. It looks like Ostra mans oyster.
