This may be a stretch and completely wrong.... Fenris is named after Loki's son Fenrir! Denarius calls him little wolf because in the story Fenrir is a wolf. Odin's dreams all end with his eyes and teeth so he believes this to be his death. The gods tell Fenrir that they want to test his strength by binding him and seeing if he can break the chains. They do this twice each time with a stronger chain, but he breaks each of those. Then they go to they dwarves to make the stongest chain. The dwarves produced a chain that looked like a ribbon. They came to trick Fenrir into being tied up, but he wasn't stupid. He claimed there would be no glory in breaking a ribbon and that he was starting to believe the gods were afraid of him. The only way they were able to convince him to be bound was to let him hold one of the gods hands in his mouth which he promised to release upon being untied. He wasn't able to break the ribbon and the god lost his hand when they revealed the truth. He swore he would kill Odin one day. So the reason Fenris has a ribbon may be alluding to his unbreakable bonds and saying that is his love for Hawk. The black thing might be the the braket that attatched the ribbon to the rock which was burried farther than the deepest ocean.

Or I might be crazy. Just made sense that it was all symbolic to me....
