Tokí was born in 994 AD, in the area now known as Oslo, Norway. He spent his young years learning his idrottir from his father Magnus.

Magnus - a great warrior, sailor, trader, Skald, Jarl and father - took great pride in teaching his ways to his son. As a teenager, Tokí spent time along the coasts of Scandinavia, Scotland, Man and Ireland. He went with his father on trading and raiding missions.

Magnus had established a trading house-hold on the Isle of Man. This household was among many of the other Norse settlers.

In the year 1014 AD, Brodir of Man recruited Magnus and Tokí. Along with a large warband they headed for Ireland to try to keep the Norse foothold on the Island. Fought on a beach, the battle of Clontarf took place on April 23, on the Christian holy day of Good Friday. That day Magnus was taken to Valhalla by Odin's handmaidens.

Tokí made his escape by swimming for one of the remaining longships in the rough sea. Only by losing his mail and weapons did he make the swim. After that battle Tokí's life has changed to concentrate on the gentler of the arts.

Tokí left Norway for good when Olaf II Haraldson was tightening his reigns over the area, bringing Christianity to Scandinavia. In 1020 c.e., he moved the last of his belongings to the land that once was his father's. On the Isle of Man, he sought inner peace and settled into a quieter lifetime. On this isle he is known as "den Rundnåndet" (the open-handed), replacing "inn bloðauga" (the blood-eye), a nickname that he received on campaign. But he spends the next six years struggling with his inner desires.

The peaceful life was a nice change but was not a permanent recourse. Tokí's wanderlust welled up once again. In 1026 AD he has again taken up the sword and ship, trading or selling his services. Venturing across the channel to Scotland, the land and people have found a home in Tokí's heart.

During this time he has also fallen prey to love, taking Signy Kyrri Rikarthardottir as his wife.

He spends his time doing the things that he holds near -- making friends, lending a hand, teaching, using his drinking horn, practicing the skaldic arts and spending his what little precious time he can with Signy.

He has kept much of his heritage from Norway but is slowly adapting to many facets of his new homes. He has found many new challenges to learn in these countries.
