Twilight of the Gods
Ansgar, self-described "Apostle to the North" from Germania
Ansgar wears humble brown rough-spun clothes, eats simple meals, and is well-regarded among the poor of Birka and the surrounding region. He goes about unarmed except for perhaps a tool or walking stick, refusing to carry even a seax. He is not well-regarded by landowners and certainly not by warriors, but each year he baptizes a few more Swedes.
Ansgar claims to have been sent from Germania as “Apostle to the North” by a Germanic King named Lews or somesuch. Lews the Pious. Ansgar is a priest of the White Christ, the strange southern god.
