Kjalar was born in a village on an island. His curiosity about other lands and seas grew from a young age as he was naturally restricted to a small area. His parents worked the fields all year round and struggled to make a decent living. He met Frøydís at the age of 8, when a new farmer settled at the border of their land. The two children played together and had a lot of fun during their childhood years. Whenever they finished work, the two met at the border to venture out into the wild. One of the farms burned down to the ground after a terrible fire. The parents of both children agreed to join their lands and build an extra farm next to the other. It was a happy little community until one by one the parents died of disease or old age. When the last parent was gone Kjalar and Frøydís moved to another island and settled there.
