Vikja heroes and heroines Dynþór the admirable


Dynþór is a courteous and admirable tracker who lives in a mountainous area. He is quite tall, has grey eyes, dark blond hair and a stubble beard. He wears a long robe with cloak and carries a large bag on his back. He is an insightful person and has good knowledge of the trails, paths and dangers of the local area.

The family of Dynþór is considerable in size. He has a wife, called Nýbjörg, three sons and four daughters. His house is located at the northern edge of the village right next to a long mountain ridge. A shop and workplace have been constructed next to their main house. A mountain path goes right past the buildings and up towards a small plateau which has a waterfall and pond. It's here that rituals are held to appease the gods and creatures that are believed to dwell in these mountains. Nýbjörg and two daughters, Lína and Mábil, run a shop and sell all kinds of hand made leather objects. The other two daughters, Rín and Ollý, are running the household. Two sons, Fáfnir and Eberg, are part of the village watch, they go on patrols almost every day. The third son Eyþór trades wares from their shop on the other side of the mountains, in exchange he brings back goods from the coastal area.


Dynþór was born in this village and spend a great deal of his time with his father in the mountains. Most of the time they were hunting and tracking animals. Occassionally they were employed as a guide, then they had to take groups of travelers over the mountain paths to the other side. Many difficult journeys had been made across and some travelers did not make it. Wild animals, severe weather conditions, and climbing accidents were most of the time the cause of death. The long journeys and the separation from the other family members was not always easy.


Currently Dynþór is tracking down a traveller who got missing in the mountains. Villagers were warned by a woman who was expecting her son to arrive this week. As he was three days late, she was getting worried that something had happened. Dynþór was send up the mountain as soon as the news got to him. He does this kind of work regularly as the mountains can be quite treacherous during autumn.


Dynþór has good skills in tracking and hunting, his secondary skills are weather forecasting and finding clues. Dynþór owns a house with shop and workplace. He has a pony and several good weapons like a spear, bow and seax. He does not use any shield or armor. He owns 6 silver and earns an income of 4 silver per month.
