I Am Grendel...

SkinGrendel's skin was tough and impermeable to weapons. (lines 374-388) "but their pointcould not hurt him, the sharpestand hardest iron could not scratchat his skin, for that sin-stained demonhad bewitched all men's weapons, laid spells that blunted every mortalman's blade."

EyesGrendel's eyes were filled with hatred for the men of Herot. (lines 300-302) "his eyes gleamed in the darkness, burned with a gruesome light."

Tone and MoodThe overall tone and mood of Herot is very depressing and mournful. (lines 186-189) "your country is cursed with some strange, vicious creature that hunts only at night and that no one has seen."

Hair and SmellAlthough there is no textual evidence speaking of his hair and smell, it would be safe to assume that his hair is probably very matted down and snarly due to the lake water in which he lives. As for his smell, I would assume that he would not smell like fruits and flowers. He would probably smell like dirty marsh water, almost like a wet dog.

ClawsGrendel is described in various places throughout the text to have claws. (lines 34-35) "The monster's thoughts were as quick as his greed or his claws."(lines 72-73) "No one waited for reparation from his gruesome claws."

Mouth Grendel's mouth has slaughtered many Geats. (lines 314-320) "Ripped him apart, cut his body to bits with powerful jaws, drank the blood from his veins and bolted him down, hands and feet; death and Grendel's great teeth came together, snapping life shut."
