In Norse mythology, Hati is a wolf that chases the moon (Máni) through the sky every day, trying to eat him. Hati has a sister, Sköll, who chases Sól, the sun. At Ragnarok, the downfall of the cosmos, they catch their prey as the sky and earth darken and collapse.[1]

Hati's surname is Hróðvitnisson, attested in both Grímnismál and Gylfaginning, which indicates that he is the son of Fenrir, whose alternate name is Hróðvitnir.
