Freki and Geri were two Fenrisian Wolves, erstwhile escorts of Leman Russ.

History

Freki and Geri were the wolfsiblings of Russ from the time after his landing on Fenris when he was housed and raised by a female Fenrisian wolf. Freki was hotheaded, in contrast to Geri, who was experienced and contemplative. Both, especially Geri were said to be very intelligent.[Needs Citation]

The age of the both wolves or of her mother can only be guessed, as Geri is described as "Age-old compared to the norm of his race".[Needs Citation]

Two unnamed colossal wolves, one black and one white (presumably Freki and Geri), fought at Leman Russ's side in the Battle of Prospero. When Magnus the Red managed to drive a devastating psychic spear through Leman Russ's chest in their conclusive duel, the two wolves defended their master and leapt upon Magnus, fastening their jaws upon his legs. In response, Magnus shattered the black wolf's head with his fist and telekinetically hurled the white wolf over the heads of the Space Wolves army. The white wolf's ultimate fate is unknown.[1]

In an apparent canon conflict, in Wolfsbane (Novel) both wolves are shown to still be alive.[3]

Etymology

Geri and Freki are Odîn's wolves in Norse mythology.

Miniatures
