An unknown number of centuries ago, Fafnir was the king of Nastrond, a land on the other dimensional continent of Asgard. Fafnir was named after Fafnir the Frost Giant, who transformed himself into a dragon to guard his wealth, including the Ring of the Nibelung. King Fafnir of Nostrand was the most evil of the people that lived in that land, who were infamous for their malevolent, immoral ways. Under King Fafnir's leadership, the people of Nostrand defied Odin, monarch of Asgard, in a way that has not been revealed. Odin's wrath at this unknown provocation was so great that he used his vast power to lay waste the entire land of Nostrand, rendering it barren and incapable of supporting life. It has been said that Odin destroyed Fafnir's subjects. As for Fafnir himself, Odin sentenced him to death. Fafnir was to remain in Nastrond, where it was assumed he would die of starvation. But Fafnir did not die there. A mystical radiant pool within Nastrond's Cave of the Ancients transformed Fafnir into a being capable of surviving in this now desolate land. Over the centuries, continual exposure to the radiant pool further altered Fafnir's form and gave him tremendous power, so that the once humanoid king of Nastrond became a gigantic, immensely powerful dragon. Despite his physical transformation, Fafnir retained his full intelligence, his ability to speak, and his desire for vengeance upon Odin.
