So for one of my WiPs (of the half dozen I have bouncing around) I'm thinking of having one of my main characters be a girl werewolf, but not just any werewolves, a special werewolf! She's descended from Fenrir from Norse mythology, and is thus a Fenrirkin. To her, werewolves are "common mutts," but I'm not 100% what being Fenrirkin would mean...
These are what I know for sure;
-Fenrirkin can smell magic, particularily powerful magic. This is important because she tracks down the protagonist who's carrying a magic macguffin (who has no idea that the macguffi is magic or even that magic exists)
-In norse mythology Fenrir was STRONG, so strong that only the war god Tyr could handle him as a pup, and the gods seal him out of fear, as such Fenrirkin must be STRONG.
-The Fenrirkin are bloody pissed at the gods betraying and sealing away their patriarch and do whatever they can to undermine their power. This extends somewhat to a distaste of authority as a whole.
These are what I'm still considering;
-Fenrir was sealed by the gods, maybe part of his curse was passed on to his descendents? What if they are TOO STRONG and their sealed from using their full strength.
-Fenrir was also described as being bloody huge, maybe their true form is a wolf the size of a bus or something?
-Fenrir kills Odin in ragnarok and bites of Tyr's hand. Maybe they have an ability to tear through magic and spirits?
What do you guys think? Any questions? Any suggestions?
