Thorfinn (トルフィン, Torufin) is a Jomsviking noble and a warrior in Askeladd's army. Thorfinn starts the series as a violent, revenge-driven warrior in employ of his own father's killer. The saga follows his growth from his origins into the "true warrior" exemplified by his father. He is the main protagonist of Vinland Saga.
Thorfinn is born and raised in Iceland. He lived with his family and was a happy and a lively boy. He played with the children in the village especially battle with a wooden sword and shield, even though he was always one of the first to be beaten. One day Floki, and his jomsviking come to Iceland to get aid from his father, Thors. When his father was going out to a battle, Thorfinn hid himself in a barrel on his fathers ship. A pirate/viking called Askeladd , who was hired by Floki to take down Thors, came and dueled Thorfinn's father. Thors took down half of Askeladd's men, including his second in command, and then the two faced off. Thors won the battle, but in exchange for thorfinn's life, he was killed by many arrows from Askeladd's men. After his father died, Thorfinn vowed to seek vengeance for his father, by becoming one of Askeladd's men and dueling him every time he completes a mission in combat, so he can avenge his fathers death in a fair battle.
