\nGrendel was an outcast who walked in desolate places of society. He got angered by the sounds of celebration and singing in the Danes' feasting hall. Always leaving scenes o…f carnage and destruction, Grendel finally met his match when Beowulf, a hero, fought against him and won. Beowulf only succeeded by ripping Grendel's arm off.\nGrendel's skin could not be broken by any weapon because he put a spell on himself. Supposingly, Grendel is a descendent of Cain, the first murderer in the Bible. In Beowulf the poem : Grendel was a monster spawned from Cain. He terrorizes Herot Hall (a mead hall - place for merrymaking/drinking/women/refuge for soldiers), and reigns for 12 years before Beowulf comes to help. Beowulf cuts off Grendel's arm and hangs it from the rafters. Grendel runs off to his lair and dies. In Beowulf the movie : Grendel was a monster in Beowulf... he was King Hrothgar's son.

This collaboration has been interpereted many different ways. One reference is to the story of Cain and abel. When Cain was banished from humanity, apperently, his decendents were monsters. Such monsters included grendel, who seeked revenge on man kind for gods undoing. There could be many answers to this question, but the story of Cain and abel is assumed because it is the only hint to the story that was not lost in the fire.
Grendel eats 30 men. According to Beowulf, Grendel eats only one man.

Simple, he eats them. Beowulf says: "If Grendel wins, it will be a gruesome day; he will glut himself on the Geats in the war-hall, swoop without fear on that flower of m…anhood as on others before. Then my face won't be there to be covered in death: he will carry me away as he goes to ground, gorged and bloodied; he will run gloating with my raw corpse and feed on it alone, in a cruel frenzy, fouling his moor-nest."
