Tuvstarr Leap the Elk She Kissed the Bear Hiding in a Tree Into the Wide World
In the Poetic Edda, the gods decided to shackle the wolf Fenrir, but he broke every chain they used to shackle him. Finally, the dwarves make a magical ribbon called Gleipnir. It appeared to be only a silken ribbon but was made of six magical ingredients: the sound of a cat's footfall, the beard of a woman, the roots of a mountain, bear's sinews, fish breath and bird spittle. Because of this, none of the above exist. Fenrir sensed the gods' deceit and refused to be bound unless one of them put his hand in the wolf's mouth. Tyr, known for his great honesty and courage, agreed, and the other gods bound Fenrir.
