Askeladd "Son of Olaf"

About

A cunning, mysterious Viking who commands a mercenary band of vikings, of which Thorfinn is a member.


Askeladd was contracted by Floki to assassinate Thors, Thorfinn's father. Thorfinn became obsessed with avenging his father and joined Askeladd's band with the sole intent of killing him in a fair fight, but is always outclassed by Askeladd's combat skill.




His real name is Lucius Artorius Castus.

Askeladd is a tactical genius and a master swordsman. His ability to manipulate those around him turned a horde of pirates and raiders into a close-knit group loyal to him, as well as proving him capable of turning enemies into allies, as seen with Thorfinn, Thorkell, and Prince Canute.
