A brave and prideful Geatish warrior with great respect for many competitors and is somewhat prideful. He's a man that accept any opponent that challenges him. For those that were defeated and were worthy of a opponent, he always helps them up with respect. But for those that are not worthy and fight dirty, they sure don't deserve respect from Beowulf.
