Grendel's Mother from Beowulf

Grendel's Mother from Beowulf

This is one of my favorites Antagonist because she wants to avenge the death of her son. She is a monster which makes her even more terrorizing. She has yellow bulging eyes, but her walk is swift soft. Her voice is rough and deep displaying intensity with every word. Anyone who crosses her path knows it is unlikely they will leave will all their limbs.
