This storyboard does not have a description.
Beowulf and his men receive gifts for defeating Grendel. Hrogthar says he will treat Beowulf as a son and they will feast.
Grendel's mother who comes from the man with a murderer's mark, Cain, seeks a Pathway of revenge for her slain son Grendel.
Since Beowulf is not present at Herot, Grendel's mother is able to kill Aeschere, the closest friend to Hrogthar and take the severed arm of her son back to the fen.
Hrothgar tells Beowulf the stories of Grendel and his mother whom the people in the fields have told him. They live in swamps and a lake that burns like a torch at night.
Hrothgar asks Beowulf for help to defeat Grendel's mother. "Save us, Once more, and again twisted gold, Heaped-up ancient treasure, will reward you for the battle you win!"
Beowulf agrees to fight this monster, Grendel's mother, and avenge the death of Aeschere. The men lead him to the entry which is filled with Sea Serpents.
