Bolverk with Freki and Geri

Bolverk is a powerful demon who is constantly accompanied by his wolf companions, Freki and Geri.

DescriptionEdit

Dark Bolverk

Dark Bolverk

Bolverk fights with an extendible spear and tactics involving his wolves. He is a skeletal demon warrior who is driven to seek revenge against Sparda's heir. Interestingly, Bolverk's eye sockets are unevenly sized.

HistoryEdit

Devil May Cry 2Edit

Bolverk is a demon warrior who once fought against The Dark Knight Sparda[1]. After Dante first defeats Freki and Geri before entering the streets of Uroboros City, they returned to Bolverk, waiting atop a skyscraper. Bolverk later reappears in the underground Ruin, where he challenges Dante to a duel. Dante chases him off and continues through the sewer, eventually meeting with Lucia. Bolverk later reappears as Dante climbs Arius's tower, and this time Dante destroys him. It is not made clear if Bolverk serves Arius or not.

StrategyEdit

As a boss, Bolverk fights in a very similar way to Nelo Angelo.

Freki & GeriEdit

Freki & Geri are two all-white, wolf-like demons that serve Bolverk. They may be reincarnated figures of warriors whom Bolverk fought alongside. They first confront Dante in Mission 5, and return to assist Bolverk in his battles against Dante in Mission 11 and Mission 16.

They are larger than any normal wolf, being nearly as tall as a man. The chains they wear around their necks and bodies do not seem to hinder their attacks, as they are capable of jumping long distances and with great ferocity, knocking aside anything in their path.

BackgroundEdit

In Norse Mythology, Bolverk is an alias Odin once took while masquerading as a human. Traditionally, Odin only has one eye, a fact reflected by Bolverk's unevenly shaped eyes. Bolverk's usage of a spear also matches Odin's Gungnir in terms of similar weaponry. The Gungnir is known as the "Swaying One". The only difference is that Bolverk has his spear shaped like a large blade.

Freki and Geri are two wolves that acted as companions to Odin.

Bolverk's skeletal appearance may also be a reference to the Draugr, a race of intelligent undead Vikings from Norse Mythology who possessed numerous supernatural abilities (such as driving people and animals insane, shapeshifting, or increasing in size) guarded treasures they were entrusted with (and punished those who tried to steal it), and took great pleasure in killing their victims either by devouring or mutilating them with weapons. (Bolverk crumbling into ash after being killed by Dante is likely a reference to this).
