Typical Dialogue:


Hrafnhild Djursunsdotter is the Eorlless of Udvika. She is the daughter of Djursund Njalgrimsson, who while still alive, is now too infirm to handle all of the duties of state. Her sister, Linna Djursunsdotter is married to Dane Ceolfrithsson. Djursund's younger brother, and Hrafnhild's uncle is Skjada Njalgrimsson, called one-eye, Eorl of Skaerskaap. Hrafnhild is also the first cousin of Eorlless Arnora Hadrimssdotter of Lofkirdik.
Djursund had been the elder son of the great man of his age, Njalgrim Frostisson. The King of Stjordvik, Snorri Snidilsson, was no statesman, but he was a formidable warrior, and Snorri and Njalgrim defended the realm together throwing back the Blood Skull Barony and other dangers along with their followers. When the young eorl, Hadrim Androsson, defeated Schuvekko, the Scarlet Baron, Njalgrim encouraged Djursund to make suit for Hadrim's sister Elka Androsdotter, in order to tie this champion to his son, Djursund.
Hadrim appreciated the advantages of a kinship between Udvika and Lofkirdik, and so approved the match. Hrafnhild as the product of this match has borne out all the hopes of the alliance. She reminds the skalds of her grandfather, Njalgrim, and is a formidable presence in the north country. Her cousin, Arnora, however takes the lead in their deliberations, as it is now obvious that her father committed bloodtheft on old Schuvekko. Hrafnhild remains a close supporter of her cousin Arnora. Early in Hrafnhild's tenure as eorl, she made the mistake of trying to conduct relations with her uncle Skjada as his superior, owing to her superior rank in the family (her father was Skjada's older brother) and her superior bloodline. Skjada made it clear that he was her elder, and his office of eorl was no less dignified than hers. She has since attempted to repair the relationship with some notable success. Relations, however, are not as warm as they could be between such closely related kin.

Hrafnhild has much in common with her cousin, Arnora, and the two confer frequently. Anora tends to take the leading role in their relationship, which is acceptable to Hrafnhild. She believes that she is the same as her people and her province. They cannot have different interests, because they are one entity.
