Now for the bit about the hierarchy of man! Apart from the whole "heralding the end of the world" thing this is the main mythological contribution from Heimdallr.

This bit is from a poem known as Rígsþula ("lay of Rígr"), which is found in a 14th Century Icelandic manuscript known as the Codex Wormianus.

Sure it's a deterministic, prejudiced tale, but you gotta admire that even the (ugly, stupid, swarthy) thralls have a little bit of a god in them.
