A gray-cast doppelganger of both his parents; he takes after Tuwawi in size and general build, resembling a streamlined summer-land wolf, but anyone who knew his mountain of a father would see Njal in his face. He is the smallest of the Sveijarn and has a streamlined build, although in the winter months his body bulks along his shoulders and belly in a manner that gives him a stout appearance.
His biological parents are Tuwawi and Njal Sveijarn; first there was Maera, then his beloved brother Valtyr, and sister Jökull. He was abducted soon after the family settled Duskfire Glacier and was rescued by Caiaphas, who raised him like a son alongside Kevlyn. She taught him that his birth parents wanted him dead and that she was his rescuer; from that point on he considered the sea-witch his only family. Years later, he found a kindred spirit in Saghani, although he has no knowledge of the family he started with her. After his return to the Wilds he developed a loyalty-based attraction to Saena Redleaf which dissolved around the time her pack did. He does not have any family left — believing for a while that his witch mother had passed on prior to the dissolution of his own memory.
