Grendel has been aimlessly and joyfully murdering the people of Heorot. Thus, Beowulf, goes to offer his services to Hrothgar. Upon his arrival, Beowulf introduces himself as a hero who can crush water sprites, among other things. Therefore he is equipped to defeat Grendel, if Wyrd (or Fate) will have it so.
