Fafnyri

Sigurd kills Fafnir

Fafnir – the Greedy Guardian of Gold
In the beginning, Fafnir was actually a dwarf as he was the son of Hreidmar  the King of the dwarves. Fafnir then was cursed and killed his father for his gold treasure. He slowly transformed himself into a dragon form and guarded his stolen treasure in the forest. Eventually, his brother, Regin , convinced Sigurd to kill Fafnir and avenge his father’s murder. Overall, while Jormungandr and Nidhogg symbolized death, beginning, and ending, Fafnir represented the bottomless greed and chaos. Nonetheless, to some extent three of these Norse Myth Dragons posed deadly threats to the others.
