In Grendel's case, it is the latter. In his introduction, Grendel attacks the mead-hall of the Danes, Heorot. “Greedy and grim, he grabbed thirty men / from their resting places and rushed to his lair, / flushed up and inflamed from the raid, / blundering back with the butchered corpses” (Heaney 122-125).
