At birth Stígandr’s mother proclaimed him to be touched by Baldur due to his amazing beauty. As the same claim has been made by every mother in the history of Nýjarheim it was pretty much ignored. In this case there might have been something to it though. Stígandr has always been both beautiful and charismatic. He is training as the village healer, but is disinclined to wait for injuries to happen. He uses his charisma and diplomatic skills to try to prevent fights and thus same himself the trouble of patching up the participants afterword. In his spare time he tries to add some beauty to the fallen world in subtle ways.
His mother is Hallþora Hrólfsdóttir and his father is Birgir Sindrason. He is the youngest of 3 children (1 brother and 1 sister) the grand nephew for Gray the Unicorn and the great grand son of Valdis.
