Bio:

What good is being a berserk when you’re a farmer? Thus would Egil lament to his older brother Finn about their heritage and their current economic woes. But they tried. Finn carried on with the shipbuilding trade of his father while Egil took his carpentry skills into masonry. But again, the question, what good is a berserker using tools to build instead of weapons to hack? So the brothers began the viking life, raiding, pillaging and the lot. This was usually against other rival Norse clans and blood feuds would arise and soon Finn and Egil saw their parents tortured to death, their younger brother slaughtered and their grandfather disowning them. All the while Egil’s berserking raged unchecked. Barroom brawls resulted in murder charges and in desperation they plotted to kidnap the King and offer a ransom. Then the Giants came. Now Egil can berserk in good fashion, often hindering Finn and the rest of the Vikings.
