History Edit

Pre-Series Edit

Vidar apparently thought about courting Sigrun, but Stigr beat him off with a spar. After the Conquering, Vidar decided to take Eyvin as his mate. They truly loved each other, as said by Vidar when he tells Ragna that he thought Eyvin was noble, like Caj. They had two sons, and four years before the first series he was exile for flying at night.

In The Summer King Chronicles Arc Edit

Song of the Summer King Edit

Vidar is mentioned when Dagr is exiled by Sverin, at it is mentioned that he was the one who flew at night, and so Sverin thought that Dagr would later betray him.

Later, when Dagr and Maja are about to fly to find the rest of the Vanir, Stigr mentions that Dagr's father might still be alive.

By the Silver Wind Edit

Vidar appears later into the book when he and Dagr's band of exiled Vanir return to The Silver Isles. He looks around for Eyvin and Einarr, and when Astri says that Einarr is dead, he seems shocked.

When Sverin goes to have his penance, Vidar forgives Sverin in front of the entire Vanir and Aesir pride.

Later, Vidar helps Ragna collect mollusks that had been stolen by a sea bird. Vidar tells Ragna that Eyvin will not forgive him for flying at night, and now does not love him anymore. He then goes on to blame himself saying he should never of flown at night, and if he hadn't, his son never would have died.
