He grew so large that the gods became afraid of him.Only Tyr was brave enough to feed and take care of Fenris.The gods crafted the strongest iron chain called Laeding and attached it to Fenris.Fenris easily broke it.The gods then crafted a second chain, Dromi.He allowed the gods to put the fetter upon him, and he broke it. The dwarves made a silk bond called Gleipnir. Fenris let the gods put it on him, if Tyr put his hand in Fenris mouth.Fenris realized he couldnt get out, and he chomped off Tyrs hand.
