–Midgardsormr sleeping

Miðgarðsormr is one of the Five Great Dragon Kings. Known as the Sleeping Dragon, Dragon of the End, Midgard Serpent and World Serpent, he is the largest dragon in existence, with Apophis and Great Red being second and third in terms of size. He is also the second child of Loki who created him, thus making him the younger brother of Fenrir and older brother to Hel.

Appearance

Midgardsormr is a grey Eastern dragon with an enormous body measuring around 500-600 meters in length, well over five times the length of Great Red's body.

Personality

He is an extremely lazy dragon, spending most of his time asleep. He is also quite dismissive towards others including his father and brother, claiming that they are meaningless existences to him. When conversing with people, Miðgarðsormr speaks with a well-mannered, very laid-back tone of voice, occasionally falling asleep in mid-conversation, yet is also wise enough to give advice to others.

Interestingly enough however is that Miðgarðsormr doesn't seem to mind waking up when there is something interesting going on, even going as far as saying to wake him up again if something happens.

History

Miðgarðsormr (or Jörmungandr) is the middle child of Loki and dragon who was created sometime after Fenrir, however, unlike, his brother, he wasn't loyal to his creator. Due to both his gigantic size and laziness, the Norse Gods had him sleeping inside of ocean, then told him to at least do something at the end of the world, earning him the nickname Sleeping Dragon and Dragon of the End.

During one of these instances, he was taken care of by the local Dökkálfar (Dark-Elves) and Svartálfar (Dwarves).
