Ragnar Lothbrok is a restless young warrior and family man who longs to find and conquer new lands across the sea and claim the spoils as his own. Now he is an earl and with more power than ever before, his desire to sail west and explore new kingdoms remains unquenchable. Ragnar feels a deep affinity for the Norse god Odin. This powerful deity is the god of warriors slain in battle and is also the god of curiosity.
