Vikja heroes and heroines Fjallgeirr the steadfast


Fjallgeirr is a steadfast and energetic woodcutter who works for a shipbuilder. He is of normal height, has dark brown eyes and light brown hair. He wears brown colored clothing and a green cloak. He is vigilant about his surroundings and has a good sense for how to handle things. He is direct in his approach and nimble in his actions. He has a skute with which he can transport logs over water.

His family consists of three members, Mýrún his wife, a son and daughter. Mýrún and his son Lasse run a small cattle farm with some pasture land. A considerable forest is situated next to their pasture. From this forest Fjallgeirr selects trees to be cut down which will be used in shipbuilding. He uses a pair of oxen to drag the logs back to the farm. The mast, however, needs a special kind of tree and for that he ventures further out to find a good specimen. Occassionally he sails to one of the coastal islands, where he cuts down one or two trees and transports them back. The floating tree logs are fastened by a rope and nail behind his ship.


Fjallgeirr was born in a village located at the tip of a peninsula. His father worked as a carpenter at a small dockyard, which was the largest business in the village. Every year five or more ships were being build. Often different types of ships are completed ranging from small skutes to larger drakkars. The village is a lively place, fishermen, traders and other woodcutters from the area gather here to get to work. Vast forests are visible from the village which are located more inland. These lands can be reached by rivers that cut through the wilderness. Many woodcutters use these waterways to supply the dockyard with lumber regularly.


Currently Fjallgeirr is attempting to find a large mast for one of the biggest ships. The king has commissioned a drakkar for the coming war expedition later this year. The best carpenters and shipbuilders have been hired to complete it in time.

His daughter Ljóta has sailed to the main gathering point of the king's expedition. She wants to sell them food and supplies for the journey. She took the finest cows from their farm with her. She and her uncle, a trader, are pretty confident that their cattle will be sold here. A storm is coming fast, but Ljóta and her uncle will be safe as they have entered the harbor just in time. Looking out over the waters they can see the harbormaster and his men taking precautions, as ships are being tightened with ropes.


Fjallgeirr has good skills in lumber and searching, his secondary skills are breeding livestock and repairing. He owns a farm and a skute. Fjallgeirr has an axe, spear and seax but he wears no armor. He has 5 silver and an income of 5 silver a month.
