Pinning for future reference because I bet this will be significant in the Magnus Chase books. (Also, the name Fenrir ring any bells? *cough* *Fenrir Greyback AKA evil werewolf* *cough* *from Harry Potter* *cough* *JKR knows her root words and names*)
Concept artist Rasmus Berggreen was kind enough to share some of the art that he created for his project, “Fall of Gods”. “Fall of Gods” is a Norse inspired illustrated book about a warrior named Váli, who sets out to get his murdered family back from the underworld. Berggreen explains “I aim to bring all the mystery of Norse mythology into this story and in the illustrations as well.”
Fenrir (or Fenris) is a gigantic and terrible monster in the shape of a wolf. He is the eldest child of Lokiand the giantess Angrboda. The gods learned of a prophecy which stated that the wolf and his family would one day be responsible for the destruction of the world. They caught the wolf and locked him in a cage. Only the god of war, Tyr, dared to feed and take care of the wolf.
