The Grendelkin is a monster.
It is covered head to toe in hair, weighing over a quarter of a ton, with fangs, long black finger nails, and black blood. The Grendelkin is both strong and fast, and can use limited veiling magic to sneak up on prey. It eats humans, but also requires them (specifically virgins) to reproduce. Something in mead makes grendelkin fertile. Once it gets spawn upon a woman the grendelkin baby bursts from the mother, killing her.
