Thus exiled, Regin took refuge among men, to whom he taught the arts of sowing and reaping.
Then Fafnir and Regin were forced to go out of the dwelling.
Regin thereupon sought counsel of his sister Lyngheid, how he might obtain his patrimony.
The work of Regin's hands was a shield, a great shield of iron.
It will lead you to the house of Regin, the master, the greatest charcoal-man in all Rhineland.
Regin worked for days in his smithy and Sigurd never left his side.
Fate shall not so resistless be, that Regin shall my death-word bear; for the brothers both shall speedily go hence to Hel.
Regin began to talk, but his speech was old and strange and filled with runes.
Regin hoped to be the world's "fashioning lord," that is, the supreme king and orderer of all things.
Regin saw that Sigurd would be a hero, and hoped to make use of him.
