Frost is an old Norseman that can't help but learn things the hard way! Born around 800ad he grew up in the shadow of older brothers and it seemed the slaves got more respect at times. Mature enough to be "fed-up" with farm life he set off for adventure. After gaining some experience on and off the battlefield he headed for the settlements of Iceland. Along the way he fell in love with a bewitching mysterious woman, of questionable background, on the Orkney isles. Together they search for a place to call home - coming close in every bay but follie and hard luck seem to keep them on the run to safety (and that elusive fortune). Getting older, Frost is hardened by combat and hard to beat in the list. As his wits keep him alive (though his wife says he is getting a bit slower) he struggles to keep his family fed. Worry for him not, for he has great honor and a great sense of humor as life throws toward him it's longest and sharpest spears.
