Vikja heroes and heroines Jóndís the cunning

1

Jóndís is a cunning and competitive trader who sails across the waters from market to market to earn a living. She has a gentle and funny personality and is of normal height. Her eye color is blue and she has long black hair. She wears a long blue robe and has a small pendant around her neck. She is a persistent seller and knows a lot about the different local products in various regions.

Her family consists of a husband, called Pjetur, and two sons and daughters. Their house is located adjacent to the market square which has a shop at the front. Pjetur makes pottery and runs the small shop together with Alda one of their daughters. Tjörvi and Viggó help their mother with her boat trips to regional markets. They also tend to the wares when she is bargaining with one of the traders or customers. Jóndís makes about ten or more trade trips every year. She visits the four popular regional markets, and a few that are more on the outskirts of the Nordic lands.

 

Jóndís was born in a large town. Her childhood was a happy one as she grew up in a loving family. She had many friends and lots of time to play. Sometimes she was a bit mischievous and hid objects from other people. Their house was located on a hill not far from the vast forests. Her parents were craftsmen and sold their wares at the market. They were good at making wicker baskets as well as leather items which ranged from belts to large bags. One day the town was struck by a severe drought which caused a shortage in food. Many people went to the southern and western lands to escape famine. These droughts became a regular occurence in these parts. Her parents bought a boat to counter these events so they were able to sell their wares in adjacent regions. The townspeople had also experienced a large influx of refugees after a neighbouring town was raided and sacked. Some of these people came here to start a new life others moved to other destinations. In that particular year the total population grew by more than twenty percent.

At this moment Jóndís is visiting a new market in a remote part way up north. She has noticed many interesting products here such as walrus tusks and whale oil. She is excited to make new contacts with the locals. She might be able to strike a deal and trade her wares in exchange of more exotic goods. Their ship got damaged by floating ice on their voyage, her sons are busy repairing it. Luckily the ship wasn't badly damaged otherwise they would have to stay here for a number of weeks. The town is crowded with ships and people, there seems to be some kind of organized expedition which will leave within a fortnight or so.

Jóndís has excellent skills in trading and trade routes, her secondary skill is hiding and sailing. She uses small weapons such as a bow and seax, but does not have any armor. Jóndís's assets are a townhouse with shop and a small karve ship. She owns 12 silver and has an income of 5 silver per month. She has signed three trade contracts with various tradesmen (pick three trade cards with a craft).
