Ragnar Spjóti Kastar hails from Norway, and quickly joined the hirð during the blót festival where he met Ælfgifu. Ragnar is a gifted skald and after demonstrating the power of his verse, he and Ælfi quickly became inseparable. Upon his acceptance into the hirð, the Jarl saw fit to gift him with a spear, which he named Gungnir in honor of the Allfather Oðinn. Ragnar is dangerous with a spear and is easily capable of making quick work of any opponent in a shield wall, as well as casting his spear with deadly precision, and at a greater distance than any of his peers.
