He was accompanied by a retinue/bodyguard of axemen. Like Borsa, he enjoyed doing taxes and killing anyone who refused to give taxes. His son died in the Battle of Thorntree. Because of this he took a Vallasvow against the royal lines of Araluen, endangering Evanlyn even more so during her time in Skandia. However, because he died a berserker (battle-rager), he was granted imediate access to Skandian Heaven and the Vallasvow was lifted, despite being incomplete.
