Europe Book Reviews: Old Tales/Modern Tellings: Early Medieval Revenants in Science Fiction and Fantasy
Latin Medieval Bestiary from England 1255-1265: actual listing for the Dragon: The dragon's strength is found in its tail, not in its teeth. Its lashing tail does great harm, and the dragon kills anything it catches in its coils. The dragon is the enemy of the elephant, and hides near paths where elephants walk so that it can catch them with its tail and kill them by suffocation. It is because of the threat of the dragon that elephants give birth in the water. The dragon's venom is harmless..

Hermóðr the Brave is the son of god Odin. The gods were speechless and devastated at the death of Baldr, unable to react due to their grief. After the gods gathered their wits from the immense shock and grief of Baldr's death, Frigg asked the Æsir who amongst them wished "to gain all of her love and favor" by riding the road to Hel. Whoever agreed was to offer Hel a ransom in exchange for Baldr's return to Asgard. Hermóðr agrees to this and set off with Sleipnir to Hel.
The God Hermod travels to Hel to bring Balder back from the dead / Hermod rejser til dødsriget for at hente Balder tilbage fra de døde.
Hermod: The Brave Hermod (Hermóðr) is the son of Odin and Frigg. Hermod volunteered to go to Hel and get Balder.
