How could the gods be so mean? :(. I think Fenrir should have been cared for the right way. I believe that if Fenrir was treated nicely he wouldn't be so hateful to the gods. If I was Fenrir I couldn't bear being betrayed by Tyr, as Tyr was the one who cared for Fenrir. I feel sorry for the wolf god.

I feel anger a lot. So I'll give him a offering. Besides wolves aren't the most kind type of animal. Also Fenrir is a rokkr god. So he is a deity. Just not the kindest one.

Odin knew the future, that one day Fenrir would be out of control and would be the cause of his death. This, and the fact that Fenrir grew rapidly and large and became powerful, caused fear within the Aesir. They bound him as a means of preventing the future Odin saw from occuring, however, it is because they found Fenrir that the future occurs as it does in Norse literature and Fenrir goes on to kill Odin after holding a grudge against him for many a year.

The definition of irony.

I do not recommend channeling Fenrir, since you are new to the practice and do not have a full understanding of Fenrir yet- but I have wrote about it before. I use this as a method of channeling anger out of myself and giving it up as an offering to him:

I also use the practice of berserkergangr to release anger and turn it into an offering:

Yeah that is true. Orin's son would kill Fenrir. His sons skoll and Hati, they don't have a fate right? Does that mean they would live after the ragnoroke?

Sorry for being so clueless. I'm just asking questions about some stuff I don't a lot on.

They are said to devour the sun and the moon- this being the start of Ragnarok. I don't believe anything is said about them after Ragnarok occurs.

Well I`m not really sure what to say one the subject, as a god Fenrir is a rather dark but also fairly easy to appease.

You don`t actually need an actual altar but as was mentioned before a tree, meadow or any place that is natural to wolfs, as for offerings some meat, fruit, ale and one can also offer a few drops of blood drawn from there left hand.
Also playing music or singing at the place dedicated to Fenrir can also be considered as a form of offering(only if the music piece was played or singed by the one giving the offering even better if you are the one to actually wrote the song/poem)
