Wotan is such a complex and enigmatic character . In Das Rheingold he seems to be totally amoral , like Loge . But in Die Walkure, he seems more human , vulnerable and tragic . You feel his grief at having to. strip Brunnhilde of her godhood and leaving her on a rock surrounded by fire . In Siegfried Wotan seems. to have. become more detached and. he. calmly accepts his inevitable loss of power and. resigns himself to his ultimate fate which will take place in Gotterdammerung .
