Storytime: Vanir Knight

I was discussing ways of keeping a backstory short and tight, which led me to 'poetic' style and reminded me of this:

Name: Vanir Knight

Identity: Alflogi

Archetype: ‘Enforcer’
Primary: Big Sword
Secondary: Shield

Movement: Super-Jumping

"So, long and long and long ago I, Alflogi son of Ljótr, was a warrior-poet of the Vanir.
Then came the Aesir, out of the east - we battled fiercely, but they proved stronger.
To end the conflict and ensure the peace, we exchanged hostages. Our lord's son, Yngvi went to join the Aesir and I was with him. Soon the tribes united, two parts of one nation, fighting together to win the land.
Eventually, long in years, I fell in battle and the Choosers carried my spirit to Valhalla.
There, I found old friends and new, and feasted and fought, as the eras rolled by, unnoticed. One such shield-mate was Donar of the Aesir.
Then the word came, from the lords of Valhalla - 'true warriors' would be chosen to return to the living lands, as emissaries and reminders that Valhalla had not forgotten them. So, I tricked my doughty friend Donar into volunteering with me, and lo, we were chosen, he for the Aesir and I for the Vanir.
Now reborn, we fight together, in this new place of heroes, and mighty indeed shall be our tale!"

Be Well!

For those who can't

For those who can't automatically parse Norse names, he's claiming to be 'Elf-fire', son of 'Light', while his Aesir friend is 'Thunder', which is another name for Thor. My old leveling partner was, explicitly Not 'Thor', but remarkably similar. Two Broadsword/Shield Defense Scrappers, teamed together, is a little terrifying.
