Why were characters invited? I, the Dragon, have invited Beowulf and Wealtheow. I saw this invitation happen in the future so it was inevitable that they attended the dinner party tonight. I may be viewed as evil, so naturally my counterpart, Beowulf must be present. I invited Beowulf also because I am very interested about what he has to say regarding honor and what will happen after he dies. Ha! That lowly human, who thinks he is a hero, but in essence, he is nothing! I invited Wealtheow because she is the peacemaker. Just in case, other guests or Beowulf (to defend his honor) erupt in fury, she will be present to use her sweet tongue and quell the conflict. I decided to attend this so-called fancy dinner because I think I will take particular interest in noting people’s lofty materials and ornaments such as their placemats and their attires. I think, even though those things are trivial, I will enjoy their presence because these shiny objects will hopefully brighten my night. Center pieces: Wealtheow’s centerpiece will be a bar of white Dove soap to represent her purity. She is the queen and is the paradigm of all that is pure and clean. The soap also represents her role as the remover of ill feelings and the producer of harmonious and new beginnings between men. Beowulf’s centerpiece shall be a shield because he protects not only the Danes but also his kingdom. The dragon’s centerpiece will mainly consist of gold coins, cold nuggets, precious gems, rings and other valuable items stolen from the treasure hordes of men. This is to reflect the Dragon’s materialism. Also the fact that all the items in the centerpiece are fake alludes to the Dragon’s nihilism, because the Dragon recognizes that possessions aren’t important (in the materialism sense) because everything is going to one day be destroyed and become something different. Place setting and food: Wealtheow’s placemat will be a silver plate to represent the sophistication and expenses of the kingdom and royalty along with a wine glass and silverware for distinction. Wealtheow will be eating some bread and mead as did the other people of the court while drinking a glass of wine. Beowulf’s placemat will be a gold plate for his royal lineage, a wine glass containing “wine” because the main battle is in the mead hall where they drink, and silverware to show he has the proper etiquette of a civilized human and a prince. As for food, he will eat meat-back then they ate chunks of meat at one sitting-and wine-shows his royal lineage and the battle of the mead hall.

The dragon will eat his fine delicacies off of a Gold plate. The dragon will not use any utensils for the sole fact that dragons eat with their mouth and not with their hands, unless it is to hold their food. The dragon is a fine eater, so no napkin is necessary, and no wine goblet is present
