The name my parentís know me by is Halla ”lisdottir, but I am not just a little blossom on the old tree. I am my own woman!
Iím a fearsome Viking, but Iím not completely uncivilized. The other Vikings make fun of me for that, sometimes. I am strong and tireless, frequently shouldering burdens that would tire lesser women. I may be able to hold your own on the battlefield, but Iím no "berserker".
I do sometimes grumble a bit at the lack of amenities on board a Viking longboat, but I can handle it! Other Vikings tolerate me on the battlefield, though they're not quite sure if they can trust me to fight dirty.
I think that I am fairly pragmatic attitude towards life, and tend not to expend effort in areas where it would be wasted. Some Vikings say I come off as a bit of a snob, which is not the Viking way. Vikings are not snobbish peopleóthey either like you, or they kill you. I need to work on that. So I now go a-viking with my sister in arms, Iūunn Ironbear!
