All the Gods had received word that Loki had fathered 3 children in Jotenheim. All the Gods were greatly alarmed and met at Well of Urd. There the Gods met with 3 Norns to see the future of the Gods.
The Gods asked the Norns to predict the future of Lokis children. "All 3 children will bring great harm to you one day" The 1st said. "One will cause Odins death & the last battle of world" The second said. "Another will bring Thors death." The 3rd said.
Stunned by the new's, Odin called his warriors together. He ordered them to go to the land and find Lokis children. Soon Odin's army returned with the creatures. First was the mighty wolf-Fenrir. Second the terrible snake-The Midgard serpent. Third the monster names Hel.
Odin immediately tossed the serpent into the sea. The snake landed & grew so long the body encircled all of Midgard. Odin next grabbed Hel by the neck and through her into Niflheim, the frozen region of the dead. In Niflheim she became ruler of the dead.
Odin next new the wolf was the most dangerous of all. They moved the beast to Asgard and it grew stronger and more fierce every day. The Norns gave another warning to control him forever. So they chained the wolf up, broke free. Made another chain double in strength, broke it too. The 3rd also broke.
Odin told Skirnir & he went on a journey to Svartalfheim where the dark elves gave him a silk ribbon made of 6 impossible things. Skirnir brought it back to Asgard. They made a deal with the wolf and Tyr set his hand in his mouth to prove the trust. When the wolf lashed out the ribbon didnt break but he bit off Tyr's hand.
