The greatest blog in all the land!
Beowulf here. Check out a list of my family, friends, and mortal enemies (with added comments from myself, the awesome Beowulf) below.
King Hygelac – My uncle. He’s a pretty good king, and I’m glad to bring him and our people glory.
King Hrothgar – I had to help this guy get rid of Grendel and his mom. No, not Hrothgar’s mom, Grendel’s mom. We’re pretty tight. I meant Hrothgar and I, not… nevermind.
Ecgtheow – DADDY-O!
Queen Wealhtheow – Hrothgar’s lovely queen. She served us wine in their hall during a welcome feast. Guess who they were welcoming? *points to self*
Unferth – I’m honestly not sure what this guy’s problem is. He’s part of Hrothgar’s circle of people (which means he’s a Dane). He always tries to make me out to be less of a hero than I really am. One word: jealousy.
Shield Sheafson – Hrothgar’s legendary great-grandpa. I bet that guy was a beast.
Grendel – This lump of mucus is the reason I got called to Heorot in the first place. He killed people left and right, scaring the poor Danes to their wit’s end. Luckily, I was there to save the day and end him.
Bertha (aka Grendel’s mother) – She attacked us to avenge her son’s death, and then stole my trophy of his mauled arm! Can you believe that?? And does anyone else think it’s wyrd that we don’t know her name? (haha…see what I did there? LOL I’m a comic genius… anyway, I gave her a substitute name to be clear)
Wiglaf – This guy is my favorite warrior EVER. Out of all my “so-called” brave knights, he was the only one to help me fight a dragon. A dragon. Which is why he inherited the Geat kingdom from yours truly.
The Dragon – Ugh. This ugly brute caused me loads of trouble. I don’t even wanna talk about it.
