Son of Varth and Haynee, a pair of Star People who returned to Earth, abandoned by their ancestors, in search of the new energy sources. After the conflict between his father and grandfather over what to do with Puny Earthlings, Thorgal was cast down onto the Earth in a water-proof capsule and found by the Vikings. He became a foster son of the Viking chief Leif Haraldsson, but never felt fully a Viking. He is the husband of Aaricia and father of Jolan, Louve and Aniel. Has always had a love-hate relationship with gods.
