Vikja heroes and heroines Hánnar the sensible


Hánnar is a sensible and calm fisherman who has made a living from the sea and coastal area for many years. He is a tall man with light brown hair and greenish-brown eyes. He is a good swimmer and an excellent diver. He likes to scavenge along the coast looking for shellfish. Sometimes he salvages pieces of wreckage from ships that have perished in the rough seas.

His family consists of Borga his wife, together with 2 daughters and 2 sons. The sons Otkell and Ringr build and repair build small boats and often accompany their father at sea. The daughters Dagrún and Agða make fishing nets to be used by their father and other people. Borga and her daughters go to the markets to sell the fresh fish daily. Many other things like nets and boats are sold at their house.


Hánnar was born in a small fishing town which is situated in a bay surrounded by a cliff. Many expeditions set sail from the town to new lands. Occasionally Viking raiders gather their ships here to cross the seas in search of plunder. His father, called Ymir, was a harbor master and kept the flow of ships in check. His mother was a slave once but Ymir bought her freedom and married her. The local jarl was not particularly fond of Ymir and therefore the title of harbor master was not passed to one of his sons after his death.

Nowadays Hánnar and his family live close to the central dock in a sizeable house which he inherited from his father. Whenever there are festivities or events in town their sales go up. The festivities draw in quite a few people from the surrounding lands. Today is such a day and the town is a busy place especially at the central market where hundreds of people have gathered to sell their goods. Hánnar and his wife are attending the markets too, today they have already sold half their stock. Their children bring in more from their storage as the need is high.

Hánnar's primary skills are fishing and ship repair, his secondary skills are hunting and ship maneuverability. Hánnar has a house next to the docks. He uses weaponry such as a spear, axe and seax. He also made himself a sturdy shield. He has 2 boats one small and one larger skute (pick 2 skute cards of small and large). He owns 14 silver and has a monthly income of 8 silver.
