Let’s know more about the characters in detail:
Thorfinn is the Hero of the saga, who is also a teenage Icelandic warrior. He is the son of a great general turned freehold farmer. His character is based on the real-life explorer Thorfinn Karlsefni. He is all set to take revenge for his father’s death.
Askeladd is the Danish mercenary commander of the Viking band. His origins are mysterious, but people assume that he is actually the son of a Welsh princess. He is quite intelligent and sharp-minded. He serves as a father figure to Thorfinn and promises to help him to reach his goal.
Thors is the father of Thorfinn, who is killed by Floki in a battle. He is the captain of the Jomsvikings mercenary band. He was, in fact, one of the strongest warriors among all the Vikings, and hence he had also earned the epithet “The Troll of Jom.”
After the birth of his children, he faked his death and left the battle midway to start living life as a farmer along with his family.
Canute is the 17-year-old son of Sweyn Forkbeard and prince of the Danes. Initially, he is portrayed as a girly-looking and timid Royal Brat. However, in the latter half of the first arc, he slowly developed an ambition to create a perfect place of happiness on Earth.
This character is highly inspiring by the historical King and one of the best Danish rulers of England, Canute the Great.
Thorkell is the former captain of the Jomsvikings, and he is the brother of the Jomsviking Chief, uncle-in-law of Thors, and grand-uncle of Thorfinn. He is portraying as a tall giant man with a pair of axes who loves to fight battles. This character is based on the historical/mythological figure of Thorkell.
He is the strongest Viking warrior and possesses extreme power. Even one character believes that 4000 men aren’t enough to stop Thorkell.
Other than these other remarkable characters in the Vinland Saga are Floki, Willibald, Ragnar, Jabbathe, and Leif Ericson.
