Character Bio's for the 'Immortal Warriors' series

The following are the character bio's for my favorite immortals, Torvald and Victoria Svensen, their family and their recurring special guest, Aslaug Larsdatter. As with any story, the more you know about the characters, the better you can enjoy the story. Below I have created a list of the main characters that always appear along with links to a few recurring special guest stars.

Torvald Arend 'Tor' Svensen

  • Species: Danish Heavy Equine (this breed is long extinct now)
  • Rank: Berserker/Warrior for the Gods
  • Birth Date: Very early Tenth century, exact date not known, possibly before the beginning of the Reign of Gorm the Old of Denmark
  • Modern Arbitrary Birth Date (for legal reasons): July 8th, 1952
  • Birth Place: A small town near modern day Gerding, Denmark
  • Parents: Sven Mikkelson and Agnete Gunnarsdatter
  • Height: 6' 11 1/2" tall
  • Weight: 285 lbs. (or so he says-Victoria says it's more like 310 lbs.)
  • Build: Very muscular from working out every day in his spare time. No paunch to speak of (yet). Some furs mistake him for a former professional bodybuilder from time to time because of his build. His appearance sometimes causes others to shy away from him at first because he looks like he could punch out a building with his massive upper body strength
  • Coloration: Blond coat (somewhat long for an equine) with slightly lighter long platinum mane and tail (mane worn in a ponytail most of the time-he catches flack at work for it, too), cream colored hooves and nails
  • Eye Color: Ice blue with flecks of darker blue around the edges
  • Preferred Paw: Left
  • Favorite weapons: Dane axe, Franciscas and Ruger Redhawk in .44 Mag chambering
  • Education: Master's Degree in Theology, Bachelor's Degree in Criminal Science
  • Day Job: Youth counselor, Los Angeles Metropolitan Police Department. Official rank of detective. Yes, he wears a badge.
  • Hobbies: Sailing, target shooting, watching professional football, Combat training with his family and friends
  • Favorite foods: Braeburn apples, veggie pizza, beef(!) burritos
  • Religion: Staunchly Asetro, a follower of the Old Ways. He will defend his religion with a vengeance but he will also defend another's rights to worship in their preferred religion too, provided their worship doesn't infringe on others.
  • Pet Peeves: Slow drivers, Telemarketers, Demons with attitudes, use of the Holy word for personal gain, American beer (he says it's pee-water in a bottle!) and getting his fur scorched off by a dragon's breath.
  • Other: Still has a decided North Atlantic accent even after all these years in the US. He married Victoria on October 10th, 1991

Torvald is a very likable fur that has a fun streak in him a mile wide. He is always there for you even if you have just met him. He still has a bad habit of charging into battle with his Dane axe held high, not taking stock in the situation first. Although his absolute favorite weapon is the Dane axe, he likes modern firearms too. He has many scars about his body, some quite visible such as the long horizontal scar across his abdomen that still shows quite prominently through his somewhat long coat for an equine. For the record, the original spelling of his last name was Svenson but there was a clerical mixup when he was creating an identity for himself so that error unfortunately modernized the name. His middle name, Arend, means eagle in modern danish. He added this when he was creating an identity for himself.

He was pulled from death (and the Valkyrie's grasp {not Aslaug, but some of her sister Valkyries}) on a battlefield in Saxony when he was in his early 30's and healed of his wounds in Valhalla. He was then sent to Seattle, Washington in the year 1891 to study religion under a mage and become a Holy warrior. A meddling by Surt at that time derailed his training only to have it resume in the 1940's by obtaining a college education, unbeknownst to him being guided all the while by the Gods. He also served in Vietnam under the name of Ivar Johnsen as a Marine from '68 to '72, leaving the service as a decorated veteran with the rank of E6 Staff Sergeant.

I should point out that he is immortal as is his life-mate Victoria and their warrior friend, Aslaug. All of them will tell you in a heartbeat that immortality sucks big time and they all long for that day when they will be mortal again.

Victoria Angela Connell-Svensen

  • Species: Bengal Tigress
  • Rank: Warrior for the Gods
  • Birth Date: April 4th, 1966
  • Birth Place: Hughson, California
  • Parents: Walter and Harriet (Bishop) Connell
  • Height: 5' 9 3/4" tall
  • Weight: 138 lbs. (or so she says, you know how femmes are about these things)
  • Build: Average slightly muscular but shapely femme build with some visible tone to her body from the missions they go on
  • Coloration: Standard ruddy orange, black and white coloration with normal tiger markings, black waist length hair. Her stripes are rather wide compared to the rest of her family's markings
  • Eye Color: Light copper
  • Preferred Paw: Right
  • Claws: Yes, black in color
  • Favorite weapon: Long Staff
  • Education: Bachelor's Degree in business Management
  • Day Job: Senior Salesfur, Century Real Estate in Irvine, California
  • Hobbies: Sailing, Leather working, restoring antique furniture
  • Favorite foods: Meat, Rocky Road ice cream, Catnip
  • Religion: Mormon
  • Pet Peeves: Telemarketers, Proselytizing in the streets, Demons with 'tudes, Archangels that sneak up on her, furs that make fun of her Dodge mini van, missions on worlds governed by arcane magic, missions where she ends up naked at some point and used car sales furs
  • Other: Her parents are from Wisconsin so she has a slight Wisconsin accent as a result.

Her maiden last name came about from her great-grandparents changing their last names to an American sounding name when they migrated from Mumbai, India. She doesn't like firearms but she will use them if necessary. She was previously married to John Parks, a Bengal Tiger. He is the biological father of Conrad Svensen, her son.

Victoria was separated from her first husband when she met Torvald in a grocery store vegetable aisle. Conrad had thrown his stuffed kali out of his stroller and Torvald brought it back to her. The same thing happened the next week so he gave her his phone number. The berserker still claims he wasn't hanging out in the store in hopes of seeing her again. They were married after her divorce from John Parks was final.

Once Torvald had become a warrior for the Gods, she began missing him when he would be gone on a long mission. The stallion talked her into becoming a warrior with him and they have been having a time with their work for the Gods. She loves the challenge of helping Aslaug become more comfortable with the modern world but it's obvious that she may not ever be totally successful.

the tigress was made immortal so she would survive when she was taken (unwillingly) to an evil realm and she's still mad at the Gods over that. They stirred her genetic warrior past to give her the needed drive and skills to survive and as a result she finds herself stalking other furs at times. She also feels she's a lot higher strung now, making it hard to relax at times.

She is very close to her younger sister and her parents who still live in Ceres, CA. although she only gets to see them 2 or 3 times a year. Her grandparents are still alive and they all live in and around the De Pere, Wisconsin area.

Something that is not talked about is the fact that she is a twin. Her sister, Virginia Elise, died just days after their third birthday. Virginia had been complaining of headaches which turned out to be an aneurysm that burst on her in her sleep. She was a white tigress but otherwise identical to her sister. She was interred in Ceres, California on April 12th, 1969.

Valerie Jean Connell

Valerie was once married to James Carver, a cougar. She divorced him after 2 years of marriage when she realized she didn't really love him. They did not have any children from their marriage. She later discovered she had deep feelings for one of her co-workers, Barbara Caine. They now live together and co-own an architectural firm.

... and we should talk about a fur that was previously unknown to all of you until now, Victoria and Valerie's older brother.

Walter Lee 'Wally' Connell Jr.

  • Species: Bengal Tiger
  • Rank: Mortal
  • Birth Date: Feb 10th, 1965

  • Pet Peeves: Employees that won't show up to work sober, Clients that expect him to work for free, neighborhood kits that won't stay off his lawn, his next door neighbor's loud music
  • Other: Just like his sisters, he has a slight Wisconsin accent.

Recent events involving Barbara and Valerie has brought Wally back into everyone's lives. He has a very troubled past, having spent time in jail for the accidental death of a close friend (who was Victoria's first boyfriend) as a minor. He was 'asked' by his father to stay away but as we all know,things change over time. He was asked to become part of the family again by his father and sister so they will now have to get to know him all over again, along with getting to know his wife and three children.

John Conrad Svensen (formerly John Conrad Parks Jr.)

  • Species: Bengal Tiger
  • Birth Date: October 12th, 1990
  • Birth Place: Saugus, California
  • Parents: John and Victoria (Connell) Parks
  • Height: 5' 11" tall
  • Weight: 215 lbs.
  • Build: Muscular feline male build with visible tone to his body

  • Eye Color: Medium copper with a hint of green

  • Religion: Asetro
  • Pet Peeves: Substitute teachers, males that pick on him because he's on the football team, telemarketers
  • Other: He prefers to be called Conrad rather than John, his first name

Conrad hasn't seen much of his father until as of late because of the time line shifts that he went through. Victoria had his last name legally changed to Svensen after she married the huge fur. He wants to get a degree in Theology so he keeps his grades up to get into a good college on a scholarship of some kind.

...And it was bound to happen. One time shift, a planet jump and one backstory too many and the Svensens have a few more children than they had before. The next three are the new additions to the Svensen household.

Axel Torvald Svensen

  • Species: Danish Heavy Equine/Bengal Tiger cross
  • Birth Date: January 6th, 1993

  • Other: His friends call him 'The Axe'

Axel (and his twin sister Gytha) were born to Torvald and Victoria after they were told that they couldn't have children. Even though he's a very huge young fur, he has a very compassionate outlook on life. He has always stood up for the smaller furs that were being picked on by bullies and he goes by the tenet of treating others as he would like to be treated. His faint tiger striping is the only indication that he is a tiger/equine mix.

Gytha Louise Svensen

  • Species: Danish Heavy Equine/Bengal Tiger cross
  • Birth Date: January 6th, 1993
  • Birth Place: Mission Viejo, California
  • Parents: Torvald and Victoria (Connell) Svensen

  • Weight: 230 lbs.
  • Build: Muscular heavy femme equine build, has hooves and paws.

She has very faint tiger striping that shows up plainly in the sun or under some indoor lighting. The stripes are 'almost' the same ruddy shade as her coat.

  • Religion: Asetro
  • Pet Peeves: Substitute teachers that call on her too much, Males that pick on her because of her size or coloration, Telemarketers, Adults that feel she shouldn't wear her hair so long, Football jocks that are full of themselves. She has a serious crush on her older brother Conrad's best friend Brett Kashnikov, a Siberian Tiger
  • Other: Her friends gave her the nickname 'Gee'

Gytha has had to deal with being a very unusual-looking fur ever since she started going to kindergarrten. It has been necessary on several occasions for Axel to step in and look out for her. She thinks her brothers and sister are smarter than her but she really is very smart. Her problem is she doesn't apply herself like she should. She shows great aptitude at computer graphic illustration and wants to go to college and get her degree in computer sciences, majoring in graphic design.

Dana Lynn Svensen

  • Species: Danish Heavy Equine/Bengal Tiger cross
  • Birth Date: February 12th, 1994

  • Other: Loves to race slotcars with Valerie

Dana inherited her warrior genes from both sides of her family. She can reason carefully like her mother but it's a give that she would tear you apart if you tried to hurt her or her family just like dad would. It's very possible that she might grow another inch or 6 before she's 18.

Barbara Lynn Caine, Valerie's love interest ...

Barbara first met Valerie when she was working at an architectural firm and fell in love with her. They decied to do their own thing so they opened their own firm. Valerie taught her to ride motorcycles and she finally bought a Boss Hoss V8 powered motorcycle for the fun of it. She says it's a kick to see the looks on other fur's muzzles when they see her riding that huge motorcycle.

And the Immortal Warrior's friend and sometimes working partner's bio is as follows, graciously provided by Aslaug herself:

Aslaug 'Angelbreaker' Larsdatter

  • Species: Equine, breed long extinct.
  • Rank: Valkyrie
  • Birth Date: During the Reign of Gorm the Old of Denmark, making it early tenth century.
  • Birth Place: A small town in southern Denmark in the area known as North Schleswig
  • Parents: Father's name was Lars, mother's name unknown.
  • Height: 6'9'' (note: Torvald will vouch for this; she's one tall filly!)
  • Weight: I dare you to walk up to her and ask... (even Victoria will not ask!)
  • Build: Muscular, but wiry and lean as opposed to brawny. Even with her longer-than-average fur, muscle-tone is evident in every move she makes.
  • Coloration: Blond fur, almost white around the muzzle and around her paws and hooves. Dark streaks in her platinum mane, creme colored hooves and nails.
  • Eye color: Sapphire blue
  • Preferred Paw: Left
  • Preferred Weapons: Danish Long-axe and Francisca throwing axes.
  • Education: The school of Hard Knocks and the University of LSU (Life SUcks, as opposed to Louisianna State University).
  • Day Job: High-School Football Coach. She swears it's the only intelligent game in the world, involving both physical strength and wits.
  • Hobbies: She acts as an impromptu life-guide for a lot of kids in the local area. She does some minor wood-crafting as a hobby as well, but she's not terribly good at it. She watches College and Pro-football as often as possible.
  • Favorite Food: Pretty much anything put in front of her. She does eat meat, as opposed to many equines.
  • Religion: Staunchly Asetro, to the point of being willing to die for her beliefs...although she prefers to live for them.
  • Pet Peeve: Intolerance and negative prejudice. Ironically, Aslaug can come across as somewhat biased at times, but in truth, she gives everyone a fair and equal chance.
  • Other: Has a rather raw voice, as if she's taken some damage to her larynx at some point. Has a lot of scars and wears them like medals, particularly her facial ones, since she knows it shocks most furs she comes across. By Aslaug's reckoning, furs should not be shocked or bothered by appearances, and if they are, they deserve the discomfort. Does not go quietly about her religious beliefs. Still has a fairly solid North Atlantic accent. Distrusts most Christians on first meeting them.

Aslaug is gruff, occasionally bitchy, perpetually outspoken and unflinchingly loyal. She's no-nonsense, about as feminine as your average concrete bunker and about as tough. She's often mistaken for a hardcore lesbian because of her hard edge, but in truth, she has no romantic life whatsoever, nor a desire to get one. She can outdrink a fish, punch the lights out on pretty much anyone she meets and she hates having to resort to violence all the time, despite all this. She's not a diplomat, lacking many fundamental social-skills. Her friends usually consider this a result of her life as a shieldmaiden in 10th century Northern Europe. Sadly, this means she often ends up in violent situations where she would have preferred to deal with things in a calm, reasonable manner. Unfortunately, Aslaug is anything but reasonable when she gets angry. Most of all, Aslaug longs for a time where she gets left in peace by the universe in general.




Another one of the Immortal Couple's working partners and close friends is Jose Ortiz Latrans, other wise known as Joe Latrans.
