"In Norse mythology, Fenrir is a monstrous wolf. In both the Poetic Edda and Prose Edda, Fenrir is the father of the wolves Sköll and Hati Hróðvitnisson, is a son of Loki. Due to the gods' knowledge of prophecies foretelling great trouble from Fenrir(foretold to kill the god Odin during the events of Ragnarök, and as a result Fenrir bit off the right hand of the god Týr) and his rapid growth, the gods bound him. He killed by Odin's son Víðarr."
