In Norse mythology, dragons were always a force of calamity that is threatening the world. One of the most famous dragons, Nidhoggr, is the dragon that gnaws and chews away at the root of the world tree, Yggdrasil. In turn, the roots of the world tree are holding this dragon in captivity, preventing him from escaping and wreaking havoc on all living things. Symbolic of invisible danger to the entire world that the world itself is preventing from escaping, Nidhoggr was considered to be the inevitable evil in every day’s living that could not be prevented, only fought and braved.
