PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION: Sigurd is a tall dark featured man with strong 
arms after hours with the hammer in his hand. His arms, and most of 
his body, are covered by a thick layer of dark hair and are marked by 
the spitting from the furnace and the hot iron. His head-hair is also 
black and is kept out of harms way in a horse-tail lying on his back. 
His beard is kept short by the way of scissors - he doesn't shave. He 
usually wears quite torn clothes worn by hard labour and the life on 
the road. The most expensive item he wears are a pair of sturdy 
looking boots. 
DISTINGUISHING FEATURES: Sigurd's dark features and his road-worn 
clothes. 
ADDITIONAL INFORMATION: Sigurd was intended to take over his father's
smithy in Birka and worked as Björn's apprentice for many years. His
father's bad sense of busines changed that though, and the smithy 
became the property of a merchant who'd leant money to Björn. Sigurd 
left Birka to get away from the shame and got by as a temporary 
farmhand and smith, walking across Sweden and Norway. In Urnes he 
heard about the new island of opportunity and took passage with a 
ship headed to Iceland. Now he walks from farm to farm, offering his 
services to anyone who's paying. To convince the farmers that they 
need his help he's been forced to talk a lot and he's also learned to 
read people; if they're trying to trick him or if they're just a 
waste of time.

ADDITIONAL NOTES: Sigurd's dark features comes from his mother's
