           Hlíf Lokadóttir was born in 883 in the petty kingdom of Vestfold. Despite growing up without knowing her parents' identity, she has formed strong familial ties and considers several individuals as her brothers and sisters. As an orphan, she was suggested the patronym Lokadóttir due to the similarities she shares with the Sly One. In 911, she joined Hrólfr's crew and traveled to Frankish soil, where she witnessed the creation of the Duchy of Normandy. Since then, she has continued to travel between Frankia, Normandy, and Scandinavia, never quite settling in one place. Despite having numerous Christian acquaintances and chosen family, she has chosen not to embrace the faith and remains true to her pagan traditions.

          Hlíf is renowned for her love of sailing, tablet weaving, languages, and research. She is also known for her prowess on the battlefield and in tournaments. Her strength and determination have set her apart as she navigated the tumultuous times of great change throughout the northern lands.

          Given the bynames Mjǫksiglandi and Askasmiðr, which reflect her travels and life experiences, she earned the nickname "Honey Badger" during an event in the Kingdom of An Tir. Hlíf typically dresses in masculine attire and does not identify with any specific gender, preferring the pronouns she/they. She is fond of silver, brass, amber, malachite, bone, and antler, as well as her affinity for darker shades and macabre themes.

          Hlíf has a life partner and a child, though they are seldom seen. Due to being in service to a modern crown, Hlíf and her family have resided in three SCA kingdoms but aim to make Northshield their permanent home.

          Throughout her journey, Hlíf has achieved many remarkable feats. Notable highlights include her introduction to the SCA by her brother Wulfgar Bradaxe in A.S. XLVIIII in An Tir, her appointment as an ambassador of the principality of Tir Righ by Prince Thorwulf Bjornson in A.S. L, and her tenure as the Kingdom of Avacal Champion of Arts and Science from A.S. LIV to A.S. LVII, where she showcased an interactive bardic performance of a tea service inspired by Tang dynasty traditions, a tablet-woven band influenced by a Hallstatt fragment, and a research paper on the history of tea in Imperial China. Finally, she was honoured with induction into the prestigious Order of the Laurel in A.S. LVIII.
