Sven Henricksen was just a skinny kid. Asthma. Scoliosis. Thin and Lanky. Nothing special. At least, until the day he visited a local RenFest. There, he met a mysterious and disinterested performer. This haggard fellow promised young Sven a great prize if he were to complete seven mighty quests. Sven succeeded, and in return, he was given a magic cudgel. Holding the cudgel transformed Sven into a mountain of a man, giving him unparalleled strength and the ability to fly. From that day on he became the Savage Norseman, hero and defender of the downtrodden.
His power was not without cost, however, taxing heavily upon his psyche, eventually shredding it to tatters. He experienced a hard psychotic break in 1998, and unable to control either his mind nor his power, The Savage Norseman retired to live out a quiet life as a perpetual mall ‘Santa’ in rural Wisconsin.
