REGIN in Viking history:
WhenLokimistakenly killsÓtr, Hreiðmarr demands to be repaid with the amount of gold it takes to fillÓtr's skin and cover the outside. Loki takes this gold from the dwarfAndvari, who curses it and especially the ringAndvaranaut.Fafnirkills his father for this gold, but eventually becomes a greedy dragon. Regin gets none of the gold, but he becomes smith to the king and foster father toSigurd, teaching him many languages as well as sports, chess, and runes.
Regin had all wisdom and deftness of hand. Of his two brothers, he has the ability to work iron as well as silver and gold and he makes many beautiful and useful things. While Sigurd is living with Regin, Regin challengesSigurd's respect in the kingdom. He tellsSigurdto ask for a horse.Sigurdasks the advice of an old man in the forest, and the old man shows him how to get a horse that is descended fromSleipnir, the eight-legged horse ofOdin.Regin continues to goadSigurd, this time into killing Regin's brother Fafnir. He offers to make a sword forSigurd, but Sigurd broke every sword Regin forged for him by striking at an anvil. Sigurd retrieves the broken pieces of his fatherSigmund's sword,Gram, and brings them to Regin. Regin repairs the sword and gives it back to Sigurd. When Sigurd again tests the blade by striking the anvil, the anvil this time is split down to its base, and when Sigurd places a piece of wool in a stream, the current pushing the wool against the sword was enough to cause the blade to cut it in two. Sigurd is finally very pleased with Regin's repaired weapon.
After usingGramto killFafnir,Sigurdreturns to ask Regin what to do. Regin instructs him to roast the heart ofFafnir, his brother, and let him eat it. As juice from the dragon's heart foams out, Sigurd tests it with his finger to see if it is done cooking. As the blood touches his tongue,Sigurdunderstands the speech of birds, who warn him that Regin intends to kill him. Before he lets any of this happen, Sigurd first wieldsGramand cuts off Regin's head
