The Geat's Line of Succession Hygelac His Son Beowulf
Capable of Great Deeds
Supernatural Foes and Help
Beowulf is the nephew of the King of the Geats, and after the death of his uncle and cousin, Beowulf himself becomes the King.
Travels over a Vast Setting
Beowulf possesses super-human strength and fighting ability that allows him to defeat supernatural enemies, such as the monsters Grendel, his mother, and a dragon.
Beowulf fights Grendel, a monstrous demon born of the greatest evil, and receives God's divine assistance in both that fight, and the fight with Grendel's mother.
After hearing of the plight of the Danes, Beowulf gathers a band of his most loyal soldiers and sets sail across the sea all the way to Denmark to save a people who are not his.
The Geats, including the Elders and Beowulf's soldiers, extol his strength and make claims that he is the strongest man in world, showing how highly they view him.
However much praise Beowulf receives from the Geats and the Danes alike, he never brags of his own strength or requires other to be subservient to him, instead allowing his strength in battle and his heroic deeds to speak for itself.
