The Norse legend of Fafnir, son of the dwarf king Hreidmar, started with Loki, Odin, and Hoenir accidentally killing Fafnir’s shape-shifting brother Otr during the hunt who had the appearance of an otter at the time. Furious, the dwarves requested a ransom to be paid by filling the otter’s skin with gold. This task fell to Loki, who played a trick on the dwarves by filling the skin with cursed gold that brought the death of whoever possessed it. Upon receiving the ransom, Fafnir felt immense greed and he killed his father to get all of it for himself. He carried the gold into the wilderness, where he turned into a dragon – a symbol of greed and eternal guardian of treasure. Fafnir was well regarded among Norse, and warriors often wore his sigil, the Helm of Awe, to garner the dragon’s strength and tenacity in battle.
