Skoll

Norse - A wolf. Offspring of Fenris and Gollweig. One of the Varns. This animal was one of the wolves which pursued the sun and moon, trying to swallow them. When he and Hati succeeded in this, an eclipse ensued. They fed on the marrow from the bones of dead criminals. As crime increased they grew stronger and in the final days they overtook the sun and moon and swallowed them finally. Referred to as Skoll.
