Vikja heroes and heroines Bersa the seeress


Bersa is a wise and charismatic völva who has been traveling from sacred place to place for nearly 6 years. She is of normal height has brown-green eyes, long brown hair and a small tattoo on her face. She has no trouble speaking in public and has very good healing skills. She likes to travel around and help people who need it the most. She often goes through great lengths to cure the illnesses at the homes of the sick.

Bersa has no family but she does have two ponies, called Brák and Þýrví. The ponies are packed with goods with most of her daily needs like clothes, herbs, potions, pots and pans. Many of her visits are announced in advance and thus people can prepare for her arrival. Her journey is often guided and guarded by local people to whom she is traveling to. When she arrives at her new destination she can often stay in a public building, inn or hall in exchange for her services.


Bersa was born in a sacred place and had been given the seeress title after an initiation ritual. As a child she stayed in a house which was renowned for their healing practices. There she was brought up by other völva and volunteers who all taught her the way to be a seeress. Eventually her knowledge increased and she was allowed to accompany other völva. It was on these journeys that she learned a lot of practical things like making ointments and performing rituals. A great number of years were needed to master the skills she needed and now she travels on her own across the lands.

Currently Bersa is preparing for an extensive ritual to be performed at the mid summer festivities. The townspeople are happy with her presence as the gods will certainly bless their harvests which they need to survive the coming winter. The town is bustling with life as the largest yearly feast is about to begin. Many tradesmen have flocked to the markets in advance to put their goods on offer. The jarl has promised to attend the festivities as well and extra security has been enlisted to safeguard the proceedings.

Bersa's primary skills are healing and searching, her secondary skills are riding and recovery. Bersa owns two ponies and some quality weapons such as a bow and seax. She wears a common chainmail underneath her cloak and carries a long wooden staff. She also has a powerful object hidden beneath her cloak, this large silver bracelet increases the morale of the friendly fighting forces by one. Next to that she owns 18 silver and has a monthly income of 7 silver.
