Greetings. My name is Thorney Hilsdottir. I was born on a wet and windy Monday under a waxing, crescent, moon. Little else of significance happened for a while. I spent my childhood working with my parents on their small holding under the benevolent if absent leadership of Orms’ farther.
When I tired of labouring for my parents I married and took up a living as a dyer of wool. My husband heard of the riches to be had in other lands and set sail to find some for himself. I laboured on in his absence. I had the reputation as a good worker and when Yarl Orm took over his father’s holdings I joined his household. Word reached me that my husband hadn’t found riches in the new land but he had found a new life for himself. So following the laws of my people I divorced him and following the tradition of my people I cursed him too.
Orm Meanwhile did well a Viking for our King and was given new lands to maintain. These days I find myself traveling unfamiliar lands helping move the Yarls’ household. Its an exciting life, getting to see new places and meet new people, sometimes only briefly and whilst their screaming but that’s just the way it goes.
