The Vikings made a name and reputation for more than a thousand years. They became the most powerful family who thirsted for violence. The son of the Vikings’ greatest warrior, Thorfinn spent his life on the battlefield improving his skills. Thorfinn works hard to avenge the death of his father, who was killed. Thorfinn’s story continues in the unconfirmed upcoming Season of the Vinland Saga.
The Viking commander, Thors Snorresson, abandoned naval battles and settled in a peaceful life in Iceland with his wife, Helga. After a thousand years in 1002, the two had a son named Thorfinn. Thorfinn was eager to see a paradise called Vinland. Jomsviking Floki visits Thorfinn’s village to engage Thors into battle. Floki is a former Jomsviking, but his real motive is to kill Thors as punishment for leaving fifteen years earlier. Thorfinn got into his father’s ship and followed into the battlefield despite receiving orders to stay home.
The ship got lost following a trap in the Faroe Islands. They are ambushed by a group of mercenaries led by Askeladd. Floki and Akeladd conspire to kill Thors. Thors noticed that it was a trap and battled with the attacker using his strength and skills. But he handed them over and decided to kill them. However, the attackers capture Thorfinn and take him hostage. Thors received an exception sentence to save his son. After Thors’ death, Thorfinn allied himself with Askeladd’s crew to avenge his father. Thorfinn defeated his commander in a duel and earned a high rank.
In 1013, Askeladd’s company became mercenaries in the Danish invasion of London under Thorkell the Tall. The two Viking crews then fought when their commander wanted to capture the young Danish Prince Canute. Askeladd’s company succeeds, but Thorkell forces them to take refuge in winter in the frozen north of England. Askeladd changes his mind and kills Ragnar to force Canute to defend himself. After two years, Thorfinn’s group returned to Iceland with the fortune they had made from selling narwhal horns. Thorfinn and Gudrid are married and have a son named Karli. Thorfinn begins assembling a crew to colonize Vinland.
