Grettir

Norse - A warrior. A giant troll-woman seized Grettir and, after a long fight, dragged him into the river. He cut off her arm and she fell backwards into the water and drowned. In another adventure, he opened the barrow of the dead Karr who was haunting the locality, removed much treasure and cut off Karr's head. He also fought the dead Glam who was causing havoc in the area, cut off his head and buried the body. Occasionally referred to as Grettir.
