The Sword of Summer

Njord was mentioned several times throughout the book, with Ran being able to detect that Magnus Chase is his grandson. He tells Magnus that he should head to skadi's harbor and to get Kvasir's mead for the flyting.

The Ship of the Dead

He saves the crew of the Big Banana from the Nine Billow Maidens. He talks with Magnus, Blitz and Hearth about Kvasir's mead and separates Hearth and Blitz from the rest of the crew of the big banana to play increase the chances of success.


Njord is described as a middle aged man with long blond hair with specks of gray and a short beard. He wears a yellow polo shirt and blue cargo shorts.


Njord is some what vain, as he loves to talk about his feet.
