Actually Dragons are noted for being very wise due to their long life.

I really don't think Fafnir would qualify for the 'wise' category. :9

How do you know? have you had an interview with him? also if he wasn't wise why would he have a name instead of just being called Wyrm as is typical of the unwise dragon type?

As the story goes, Fafnir was once a giant (giants are generally pretty stupid) and was transformed into a dragon from his greed.

But the giants didn't seem particularly clever in the legend.

yes but in another legend he was a dwarf like i said the son of the Dwarf king, the problem with viking legends is there are usually a few dozen dealing with the same person.

What I read was based off Richard Wagner's 'Ring Cycle'.

yes specifically from Der Ring des Nibelungen, but you must remember that his Opera Epics are loosely based on viking mythology and not very accurate.

Uh, Asterios, I don't know if you know this, but ALL mythology is not correct. xD Lol; their wasn't actually a dwarf who turned dragon; it doesn't really make sense saying "Nope, that is wrong." It's all just stories made in the olden days.
