Grendel is referred to as a "terror-monger," which is a kenning that conveys the fear evoked by Grendel. He is also described as a "hell-serf," which illustrates his position as servant and devotee of Satan. Both kennings enhance the the overriding depiction of Grendel as evil.



@jill d #170087 can you please specify the lines that mention Grendel as terror-monger and hell-serf?
