An interesting question, and a difficult one. Is wolf-of-the-waves underlined?
Yes, I'm sorry I should have put it in parenthesis or something. I tried looking up the definitions to each literary technique, but I just can't get it.
Alright then. This is a kenning.

A kenning is a group of words, typically using figurative language, that center around one idea. It was commonly used by Old Norse, and later Icelandic and Anglo-Saxon poets. For instance, an Old Norse poet might replace the regular word for “sword”, with a more abstract compound such as “wound-hoe”
I don't think you realize just how much I love you right now. xD Thank you so so much.
So in this case, wolf-of-the-waves might mean something like pirate, or just a great seaman.
I've got another one I still don't know the answer to though.
No problem. Anytime! Good luck. ^^
