In Norse mythology the Mjolnir (hammer) is the weapon used by Thor, the Norse God of thunder. It is sometimes referred to as an axe or club and was a fearsome weapons, capable of leveling mountains. The Mjolnir is a symbol of contemporary Norse and Germanic Paganism traditions. It is used as a protection amulet to ward against evil forces.
Jormungand (also known as the Midgard Serpent) is son of the god Loki. It was believed that if Jormungand ever released his tail, then it would herald the beginning of Ragnarok, and that Jormungand would slay his ancient enemy, Thor. The connection between Jormungand and endings are made, however, ending does not have an entirely evil tone, there is also a hint that something else will arise after the last battle and the gods in all their glory must pass away, something else comes next, and so in this Norse dragons also can be seen to take on an aspect of new beginnings, and of hope and change.
