Many of Sigurd's kind dabbled in the taboo, but he crossed a line few others did. He swung his magical blade with courage uncommonly seen. In fact, he once held an entire continent in his iron grip. His power had waned during the time he had spent sealed away, but he still had might to spare, as the demons that ambushed him discovered. Rather than pursue his frightened foes, he decided that his time would be best spent restoring himself.
From old Scandinavian origin: Sieg meaning Victory, Urd meaning Fate.
- Sigurd (Siegfried) was the greatest hero in Germanic legend, and central character of the Saga of the Volsungs. His sword, Gram, cuts through the anvil.
