“Bite-sized apocalypse”

Films: The Runestone (1991)

Alias: Martin Almquist

Type: Mystical

Location: Civilized Area

Height/Weight: That of an average human.

Affiliation: Evil

Summary: It is said that when the end times are at hand, the war of Ragnarok will commence, and all beings will be destroyed, and the universe reset. That's the old myth, at least, and one of its key players was Fenrir, the monstrous kaiju-sized wolf. But now, Fenrir's getting something of an upgrade...or downgrade...

History: When a stone filled with Nordic runes is brought to civilization, the people fail to realize that it is actually a prophecy telling of how the monster wolf Fenrir will rise again and bring upon the end of the world. Only the Tyr, the God of combat, stands a chance against him. Soon, Fenrir is brought into our world as a grotesque werewolf, killing all in his path.

Notable Kills: Nothing special.

Final Fate: It's a rather brutal battle, but in the end, both mortal and God manage to take out Fenrir with Tyr's axe. The monster soon reverts back to Martin before expiring.

Powers/Abilities: Complete immunity to damage.

Weakness: Weapons blessed by Norse Gods, such as Tyr.

Scariness Factor: 4.5-Fenrir can hardly be called a werewolf. He's more like a possessing invincible war beast that looks like a demon dog from the darkest reaches of Hel. Combined with the fact that his mere presence heralds an apocalypse, and you got yourself a terrifying monster.

Trivia: -The actual Fenrir of Norse mythology was a wolf roughly large enough to completely devour Odin, and still have more than enough room to spare. He is one of Loki's illegitimate children, and fathered both Skoti and Hati Hroovitnisson, two wolves who chase the sun and moon until they catch them at the dawn of Ragnarok.

-In Norse mythology, the relationship between Fenrir and Tyr is a bit more complex. When the other Gods shackled Fenrir away for fear of him killing them, Tyr was the only one with the courage to feed him daily as a puppy. As the wolf grew though, it bit off Tyr's hand in frustration at its confines.
