MYTHOLOGY MEME » berserker [ Norse Mythology ]

They whipped themselves up to a battle frenzy, biting their shields and howling like animals. They were ferocious fighters and seemingly insensitive to pain while this madness lasted. In their rage, they even attacked the boulders and trees of the forest; it was not uncommon that they killed their own people. The belief in berserks can be compared with the belief in werewolves — both are magical transformations of humans who assume the shape of a kindred animal.
