was a norn
hero who lived during the rise of Jormag
and its push south into the Far Shiverpeaks
. When the norn were on the brink of annihlation by the Elder Dragon
, Asgeir was given the aid of the Spirits of the Wild
to fight it - rumors say he had a powerful jotun
scroll with him as well; the scroll has been lost since, though believed to be in Hoelbrak
. Though he failed to kill Jormag, he took one of its teeth from Jormag's maw as a trophy and proof that the the Elder Dragon can be harmed, being the first to do so. Asgeir then led his people south with the four main Spirits of the Wild - Bear
, and Snow Leopard
. In the valleys of the Northern Shiverpeaks, he established Hoelbrak
, and placed the Fang of the Serpent
in the Great Lodge
. During Hoelbrak's creation, an iceberg was threatening to crush the new settlement, so Asgeir sent Hrothbeir
to break it, creating Lake Mourn
Asgeir is the grandfather of Knut Whitebear, the current owner of Hoelbrak.
