In the forming days of Nidavellir, Andvari the Dwarf took for him a treasure, greatest in the realms, known as the Hoard of Andvari. That treasure of gold was that great that Andvari couldn't leave it.
Using magic, Andvari was able to took the shape of a giant pike, impervious to any harm he could imagine of.
At some point, the time-travelling Loki came to him, as he needed the gold to settle a feud with Hriemdar and his sons Regin and Fafnir, after Loki had killed "inadvertently" their younger brother Otr while he was in otter form, and that the brothers and father had took young prince Odin Borson.
Using a bazooka, a weapon Andvari hadn't thought protection against, Loki killed Andvari and stole his gold, but not before the dwarf cursed it, causing it to reveal the truth about people.
That gold led to numerous events, including the transformation of Fafnir into a dragon, the creation of the sword Gram and its acquisition by Sigurd, the indirect transformation of the King of Nastrond into a Fafnir, the immortality of Sigurd...
Using magic, Andvari was able to took the shape of a giant pike, strong and slippery that he would be protected from hooks, nets or magic.
He was also able to cast powerful curses.
Andvari was wise in the ways of magic.
Andvari was stated to be somewhat unimaginative.
