Vikja heroes and heroines Alfrigg the determined

1

Alfrigg is a kind and determined trader who travels across land and sea to all kinds of markets. He is somewhat tall, has dark blue eyes, dark blond hair and braided beard. He wears a red brown robe with fur edges and two distinctive arm guards. He is quite a resourceful person and tries to take the fastest roads. However when safety seems compromised he plans a different route.

The family of Alfrigg consists of his wife Valdís, two sons and three daughters. Valdís and two daughters, Auða and Birsa, run the household in the longhouse. Their house is quite large and has a storage hall. There is also a stable in a separate building in opposite of their house. Family members buy and sell wares from local farmers and craftsmen and sell these at markets further away. The two sons Palni and Eitill help their father with the horses, carts and ships. Their trade goes mainly overland but on occasion a sea route is chosen.

 

Alfrigg spend his childhood in a small town. This settlement was founded 30 years ago but has seen a lot of growth since then. Alfrigg grew up in a steadily changing environment, and his parents adapted in a good way. They had set up a small transport business with carts and horses. As the route became more popular by travelers, their livelihood increased for the better. After a number of prosperous years they were able to build a small storage hall and stables close to their home. Alfrigg was a keen learner and his experience and ambition grew when he reached adulthood. At the age of 18 he married Valdís and a couple of years later he took over the business from his father. His parents still worked for the business but their health became an issue. His father especially as he traveled shorter distances after each year. On one trip Alfrigg and his father had a tragic road accident. It was rainy weather and the roads became muddy. When they went uphill one of their horses slipped and the cart slid downhill. In an attempt to stop the cart Alfrigg's father got behind it. But it was too late the cart could not be held and he got trapped between the wheels of the cart. He died from a serious leg injury and internal bleedings a day later. This tragic event made Alfrigg a more melancholic then he used to be.

At present the roads around the town have attracted more bandits. The local jarl has taken some measures and has begun to build a palisade to increase security. He has also organized more patrols in the area. However the bandits keep being a nuisance but much less then before.

The town dockyard, which has been constructed down the river, has been expanded a few times. Gradually the number of ships at the docks has increased. Alfrigg has profited from these developments and has added a small ship to his transport business.

Alfrigg has good skills in sales and trade routes, his secondary skills are recovery and riding. He uses a spear, axe and seax, for defense he wields a shield. Among Alfrigg's assets are a longhouse with storage hall and stables. He owns 2 carts (pick a small and a large one), 3 horses and a small skute ship. He has 11 silver and an income of 5 silver per month. Alfrigg also has a good number of trade contacts (pick 4 trade cards, 2 of which need to be resources).
