  • I am Einar Eirikson, son of Eirik Asgerson, born in Hornstrandir in the 9th century; I am a poor farmer, relying on raids to boost my influence and provide for my family.


  • After Geir and I go on our first raid, I carve a notch in my axe’s handle for each foe slain.
  • I kill Geir and hide his body; I will not forget him.
  • I side with Henri when The Syndicate fractures; we become good friends.


  • Eirik, my father, teaches me the family recipe for mead; I get my first taste and it is foul.
  • A small child finds me hiding from the sun and offers me his small cup of water.


  • Hege and I are out tending to our fields when she goes into labor and gifts me with a son.
  • I flee the village with my son, leaving Hege behind.


  • I chase Wolfnoð into the forests around the battlefield after he wounds Geir; Wolfnoð surprises me and stabs me through the chest, though I do not die.
  • I am almost killed in France, though I am saved by Henri.


Part of Wulfnoð’s blade remains embedded in my chest. I wear loose-fitting clothing to hide it as best as I can.
