Eyvind hails from Leka in Norway. The youngest of three boys, though the eldest died not long after birth and the middle brother took control of the farmstead with his family. Seeking adventure and a place to call his own he eventually came in contact with members of Jarl Ingvar’s crew while seeking work in Köping and signed on to join in their expeditions to the West. He is capable of many useful skills, and can learn new ones with ease. His father and elder brother are traders, and in order to protect their wares have adequate skills with a variety of weapons, even coming in possesion of a sword through their dealings. This knowledge and the weapon itself was passed to Eyvind before he left home.
