The kingdom of King Hrothgar used to have peace, prosperity, and progress but one night Grendel, a demon from Cain, emerges from the swampy lowlands. From his death-den, he listens to the celebration at Heorot and becomes angry. Once the soldiers fall asleep, the captain of evil goes inside and kills thirty-two soldiers. This makes Hrothgar’s men powerless against him.
Beowulf, the nephew of the Geatish king Hygelac and a great hero, travels to Danes to defeat this hell-brute. He voyages across the sea with fourteen of his bravest warriors until he reaches Hrothgar’s kingdom.
What a night! I get to murder all of these men and have a great feast.
Death-shadow comes once again in the night but this time Beowulf is ready and waiting for him with his shield-bearers. Once Grendel arrives, he attacks immediately by mauling and devouring one of the men. Then, he is about to pounce on Beowulf too, but Beowulf seizes him in an arm-lock more intense than anything Grendel has ever suffered before.
Beowulf rips Grendel's arm and shoulder from its socket, and the monster, mortally wounded, flees to the swamp to die. Beowulf mounts Grendel's arm as a trophy on the wall of Heorot. This shows the people how Beowulf is as brave as a lion.
Finally, the people celebrate this victory by singing, dancing, and drinking. Since this day on Beowulf will always be known and remembered as a hero.
