Dear DP and admiring fans,

I just stumbled upon this while doing research for a paper. It’s taken from an online encyclopedia of Celtic culture. Could it be a mere coincidence, or does the Spellbound family dog have an illustrious namesake who’s been heretofore undiscovered?


Son of the Dwarf King, Hreidmar. Loki killed his brother Otr and had to cover him with gold in recompence. This caused dissension between Fafnir and another brother, Regin. Fafnir turned himself into a dragon in order to keep the gold. He was later slain by the hero Sigurd.


Daniel replies:

O Great Aileron -- There are no coincidences.
