HistoryEdit

Brother to Fasolt and the pair built Odin's palace in Valhalla in exchange for the goddess Freia in payment. He didn't go through with this but instead under Loki's advice captured the dwarf Alberich and compelled him to turn over to them his large quantities of gold, the mystical Tarnhelm which was a helmet enabling its wearer to change his shape, and the Ring of the Nibelung all of which they then gave to the two Giants. Fafnir murdered Fasolt and took all the treasures for himself, Fafnir used the Tarnhelm to turn himself into a dragon, in which form he was finally slain by Thor in his human guise of Siegfried. [1]

Fafnir was one the resurrected villains who was released from Hel and used by Kurse to defeat Thor, however this was stopped by Hela who transports all the villians back to Hel. [2]
