Persona History

(This section is currently very sparse...) Hraði was raised among the rocky fjords of Iceland, but decided at a young age that raising sheep on the side of a mountain was not to be his path. He shipped out with a trading vessel travelling eastward, and offered his service to the Byzantine emperor.

(more to come.)

Award History


Both Hraði (swift) and inn rakki (straight, upright) are names recorded in the Landnámabók, a book which describes Norse settlement of Iceland in the 9th and 10th centuries AD. While he definitely stands straight and upright, Hraði is still working on the swiftness.
