" cantankerous worm."
―Father Bram Patrick Dunstan[src]

Níðhöggr (or Nidhogg) is a dragon and one of the many demons inhabiting a strange island in Connussie, Ireland.


Watching over the HeartEdit

"They have hidden my petrified heart in this, the World Tree. Down under the watchful gaze of the dragon, Níðhöggr."
―Hung Being[src]

On the island in Connussie stands the World Tree and hung on one of its branches by rope is the undead body of a humanoid being. He is trapped between the worlds of man and that of the elementals. His heart lies beneath the World Tree in which he is suspended on and is under the watchful gaze of Níðhöggr.

Arrival of the StrangersEdit

"Come closer false prophet for it is easier to be brave from a distance."
Game tr5-screen151

Lara and Father Patrick stare into the pit.

In 1984, two strangers arrived on the island. A man and a young girl named Father Bram Patrick Dunstan and Lara Croft. Lara encounters the hung being and he requests that she find his heart underneath the World Tree and return it to him in exchange for a reward. Later, Lara is underneath the World Tree and she frees the hung being's heart from its roots. She then finds Father Patrick speaking to something in an endless abyss of a pit. Níðhöggr. The dragon is aware of Lara having taken the heart and asks the priest to come closer. Father Patrick comes closer to the edge of the pit as requested by Níðhöggr but he throws a piece of iron into it which angers the dragon. He then claims that if the priest lives until doomsday then he shall burn a week longer than the world.
