After sharing his completely fabricated tales about kicking ass everywhere about Geatland and the Norwegian sea, AB!Beowulf gets into a heated argument with Unferth about the legitimacy of his boasts. In retaliation the kid uses his seiğr ability to take a glimse into his mind and see his insecurities, and he reveals for all to hear that Unferth was directly responsible for the death of his brother. Unferth gets really upset and defensive and makes accusations of unmanliness, nişinghood and seiğr practition before rushing out.
After Beowulf uses seiğr to kill Grendel, instead of being grateful for what he's done, the population of Heorot including Hrothgar call him nişing, liar, warlock and unmanly for knowing seiğr *
and threaten to throw him out. They don't want to believe that a "deceiver and traitor to his own sex" is their hero.
Guess who stands up for him? Unferth. His reasoning is no matter what the circumstances or what he's like, this young man saved Heorot, and it doesn't matter how.
Are Unferth's opinions/actions believable or contradictory? Unferth still disapproves of Beowulf's ways, but has no problem with the way he uses them.
