Hrunting orbits a dim red star and has a standard atmosphere, a gravity of 0.5 G, fairly normal temperatures, and oceans that cover 30% of the planet.

It seems clear that he could quite easily have been a character in the Finn episode, if he could have been persuaded that he was fighting for honour or conquest.
The failure of Unferth’s sword Hrunting, in the battle with Beowulf and Grendel’s mother is perhaps significant.
The sword it is claimed “had never failed the hand of anyone who hefted it I battle,” and before he leaves Beowulf says, “With Hrunting I shall gain glory or die.” The failure of Hrunting in many ways represents the failure of Beowulf’s values and the warrior culture he exists in.
