Personal Information

Ulf Skeggisson ( formerly Wulfwine of Grimwald) is a mid 10th Century Anglo/Scandinavian born around the five burough town of Derby. His father was an Anglo Saxon thegn and his mother was the daughter of a Norse trader from the township of Jorvik. When his father was slain during the siege of Derby in 917 his mother returned to Norway and fostered the young Wulfwine to an uncle living in northern Halogaland. It is here that Ulf maintains a small land holding where he trades in mead and serves the Jarl of Borg as a warrior and guard aboard the Jarl's trading vessels. Ulf is married to Sigrid Olafsdottir the daughter of a trade associate from Birka .
Within the Society Ulf is a member of House Deorc, the Ravning collective, the Lochac Brewers and Imbibers Guild and the Mordenvale Company of Brewers.
It is advisable to steer well clear of his alter ego Rat (Ulf's fully ratified representative) who is an able seaman in the Company's fleet and makes mostly unwelcome appearances during 'Pirate Night' at Spring War.
