Historical Information

Fafnir (in Norse mythology) was the son of the dwarf king Hriedmar, and the brother of Regin and Otr. Armed with the Aegis helmet, or Aegishjalmr (see FFXI Item: Aegishjalmr), Fafnir served as a guard for his father's golden house. As penance for killing Otr, the trickster god Loki gave Hriedmar the cursed treasure of Andvari, which included the cursed ring Andvaranaut (see Andvaranauts) as well as the swords Hrotti (see Hrotti) and Ridill (see Ridill).

Fafnir and Regin, in wanting the treasures for themselves, killed their father, only for Fafnir to take all the treasure for himself. Upon doing so, he was transformed into a dragon (a symbol of greed in European mythology) and hid away with it. Regin, wanting the treasure for himself, tricked his foster son Sigurd (in some stories, named Siegfried) into killing Fafnir for him, using the sword Balmung (see Balmung) to pierce the dragon's heart as he was walking towards the stream he used daily to drink.
