Vikja heroes and heroines Friðrún the industrious


Friðrún is a fisherwoman who sails across rivers and seas to earn a living. She is a kind person and of average height. She has light brown hair which is kept together in two long braids. Her eyes are blue and she has a scar on her cheek. She is an excellent swimmer and knows the local waters very well. Aside from fishing she also transports small cargoes for farmers and other folk.

She has a small family consisting of a daugther and son. She also keeps 2 guard dogs which often accompany her on sailing trips. She lives together with her parents who help with the daily chores. Her daughter Gunnrún and her son Ástvar both run the household and try to sell the caught fish at the nearby markets.


Friðrún grew up in a village next to a river mouth. The fisher profession had been in her family for many generations. Her grandparents owned a big fishing boat, which was one of the largest in the village fleet. The boat was traded for a smaller one after a difficult financial period. Her husband worked on the smaller boat for many years. One day a sudden storm caught him by surprise and he drowned at sea. The wreckage of his boat was washed ashore and his body was found by a villager. She recognized him immediately and warned his family. A sober funeral was given and they burried him next to other older family graves. His death was a great loss as the boat and their main source of income was gone overnight. The villagers were kind and gave the family a communal loan in silver and a small fishing boat. During this time all family members worked hard to make ends meet. They eventually succeeded in recovering their livelihood and things got better again. The loan was paid back and a replacement boat was bought.

Nowadays Friðrún has taken over her husband's fishing occupation with great success. She has combined her fishing with small cargo deliveries. Most of the time Ástvar accompanies her on the boat to help. Recently they have invested in a smoke house to earn extra income. The fish can now be dried and smoked so it can be preserved much longer. In the village Friðrún is a respected woman and is very much involved in a number of festivities.

Friðrún has excellent skills in sailing and fishing, her secondary skill are trading and forecasting weather. Friðrún's assets are a house with a plot of land (pick a field card) and a large skute. She owns 10 silver and has an income of 6 silver per month. She has signed a trade contract with a tradesman who lives on the other side of the sea (pick one trade card with a fish resource).
