Vidar hails from some unknown woods. He spent much of his time hunting, raiding, and trading in many different cities. This is where he heard of Jarl Aesa. Vidar respects Aesa like he respects the other predators of the woods. He believes she will lead him to fame, shiny things, and new stories.
Vidar loves to hear stories. In fact he will often trade his knowledge of fighting or hunting for a good story. Vidar has been known to recruit new warriors if their stories impress him.
While visiting a certain village with the Jarl, Vidar discovered his love of shiny objects. He especially loved the shiny hats that the shiny hat club (Royalty) were wearing. Since then Vidar has been constantly trying to get his own shiny hat through any means possible.
