Bodil Hjalmar (Bo) grew up in a small farming village. His mother died in battle as a shieldmaiden and Bo has always heard great tales of his mother’s prowess on the battlefield.
His father raised him to be able to fend for himself whether in battle or in everyday life. He thrives while wielding an axe as well as wood working – carving various utensils and kuksas.
Bo wanted to please the gods and find honor – so he went out to find a place of his own. He met Jarl Aesa while trading and decided to join the encampment offering his skills as a woodworker, fighter, and farmer.
