Can you tell us a little about yourself?
I walk the world of men, beholden to none, friend to none. I speak what I am given, nothing more, nothing less. I have carved the fates of men into Yggdrasil's ancient skin and I bore witness to the chaining of Fenrir. I am the Far-Traveled.
What is your role in the story?
That depends entirely upon those who hear me, upon their minds, their whims, their fears. To some I am a herald of woe. Others see in me the last whisper of an age of heroes. Still others deny my existence.
What is your favorite hobby?
As a boy, I enjoyed riddles.
What is the challenge you’re trying to overcome during the story?
There are some who would use me to unleash a tide of chaos and darkness upon Midgard. And I fear there are none who would risk all to preserve my freedom.
If you could make one wish, what would it be?
For a death other than the one that awaits me.
