A good example of Týr’s heroism and glory can be found in the tale of the gigantic wolf Fenrir. When the gods decided to shackle Fenrir, they planned to trick him to try on a magical rope that was unbreakable. Fenrir sensed deceit and demanded one of them to first place a hand in his mouth as guarantee of that the rope was removed would he not be able to break it. Týr was the only one courageous enough to do so. Thus, when Fenrir failed to break the rope and found himself bound, he bit off Týr’s hand.
