Role # 1 Halfdanr
Seeking 1 talent(s) for this role

To portray Scandinavian/Northern European; the bastard son of Odr and his slave, Hild. Born a slave, but mother instills in him a free-man mentality. Hardworking, honest, but guarded. He’s given up hoping for on relationships with his half-brothers. (They’ve made it clear where he stands in their world). He is an overcomer. He’s going to break his econo-social barriers, one way or another. While he truly believes he can be the man that makes his father proud, his deepest fear is rejection by his father.

Role # 2 Hild
Seeking 1 talent(s) for this role

To portray Scandinavian/Northern European; mother of Halfdanr, slave of Odr. Once a free woman and beloved wife, now she does not even own the rights to her own body. She is the embodiment of perseverance and self sacrifice. She became a slave after her late husband fell ill and died, leaving her with debt she could not repay. Having lived the better half of her life free, her highest priority is making sure her son knows the life of a free man. She nurtures a strong sense of duty, and honor, teaching him that his slavery is a duty to be fulfilled honorably, along the road to freedom. A close relationship with Halfdanr being her only joy in life, her greatest fear is living to see his death.

Role # 3 Odr
Seeking 1 talent(s) for this role

To portray Scandinavian/Northern European; weather and battle hardened farmer. Father of Halfdanr, Thorkell, Vidar & Ingvar. Master of Hild & Halfdanr. Several successful raids in the past have garnished him with significant standing among the town. When he was gone on his last raid, thieves came to rob his farm, and killed his wife. When he returned he hunted them down, drug them into town and beheaded them publicly. Thorkell and Ingvar where present, and old enough to remember. After Hild purchased Halfdanr’s freedom, Halfdanr’s legal standing essentially became that of an adopted son. The fact that he is his bastard creates family politics Odr has little time for. In his eyes, Halfdanr’s life will be what he makes it. That being said, he is intrigued and even impressed by his resilience. He realizes that in order for his sons to have futures, he must return to raiding to provide enough inheritance to go between them. Despite all his hard edges, Odor’s greatest treasure is his children. He cherishes his family.

Role # 4 Ingvar
Seeking 1 talent(s) for this role

To portray Scandinavian/Northern European; cunning with strong leadership abilities. Excellent manipulator but also physically a threat. Ingvar detests Halfdanr for the fact that he always seems to slightly out do his own achievements. He believe firmly in the social status, and sees it as an instrument of the gods to maintain necessary order. Willing to win at any cost himself, he makes sure everyone else remains within the guidelines. A good strategist, with an ego and a dark sense of vengeance. Greatest fear is facing the gods before he is renown enough to justify his deeds.

Role # 5 Thorkell
Seeking 1 talent(s) for this role

To portray Scandinavian/Northern European; model Viking warrior son, strongest of his brothers and possibly the village. More annoyed with Halfdanr, seeing him as weak, and less bold due, to his more reserved approach. Sees Halfdanr as competition, who doesn’t know when to stop. In his world, competition exists to provide opportunity for the strong to prove their ability. Fears losing the respect of other respected men, such as his father. Quietly insecure about his lack of strategy, he prefers being the muscle for a cunning leader.

Role # 6 Vidar
Seeking 1 talent(s) for this role

To portray Scandinavian/Northern European; youngest and most eager to please of the sons. Desperately seeking his place amongst his brothers, the only unique thing about Vidar is his special skill at trapping. He admires all of his brothers, even Halfdanr, but follows the wind of popular opinion about him. Privately, he feels robbed by his mother’s untimely death. Having never known her, he subconsciously looks for motherly affection from the other members of his family. His greatest weakness is his need to please his brothers. If not for their influence, he might have been close with Halfdanr.
