A Brother's Keeper was a virtual representation of one of Eivor Varinsdottir's genetic memories, relived by Layla Hassan through the Portable Animus HR-8.5.

Description

After arriving at the fjord, north of Hordafylke, Eivor and Sigurd walked to the mysterious opening.

Dialogue

Off their longship, Eivor and Sigurd walked through the snowstorm at the fjord.

  • Sigurd: Follow me! Into this kingdom of snow!
  • Eivor: Sigurd, can we not wait for this to pass?
  • Sigurd: Ah, the sting of ice on skin! Revel in this, Eivor. We walk the footpath of the gods!
  • Eivor: To where? More glaciers and deserts of snow?
  • Sigurd: To glory!
  • Eivor: Could we not wait until this tempest quiets down? With the ship, where we have mead and food to warm us?
  • Sigurd: No! We must confront the omens and honor the gods. They will not seek or find you. We must go to them.
  • Eivor: We would be poor company with frozen bones and ice pellets for eyes.
  • Sigurd: You need not fear the cold, Eivor. Where we are going the winds and snows cannot touch!

Both siblings kept walking through the snowstorm.

  • Eivor: Ah. It is bitter cold. As wind from Niflheim!
  • Sigurd: Keep steady! It should not be far now!

Eivor kept following Sigurd.

  • Sigurd: It must be near. I know the shape of these rocks! Yes, we are close.
  • Eivor: For the sake of frozen fingers, I hope so.
  • Sigurd: There, that frozen lake. This must be it. And ahead lies a cavern.
  • Eivor: Will you not say where this leads?
  • Sigurd: You will see soon enough.
  • Eivor: And too late to turn back, I fear.
  • Sigurd: There! The cave! Within hides the sacred gate.

Both warriors arrived at Goinnhellir and inside the cave, they encountered an icy blockage.

  • Sigurd: The ice looks fragile. Can you clear it?

Eivor broke the ice and revealed the passage behind it. They found an entrance to an Isu vault. As Sigurd approached the door and stood before it, Eivor turned around and travelled down a side passage, where she eventually found Gungnir embedded in the wall.

  • Eivor: Gungnir... is it you?

Eivor pulled the spear free, claiming it for her own, and experimentally slammed it on the ground as she had seen Odin do in her vision during Kjotve the Cruel's death years ago. She then retraced her steps and returned to Sigurd.

  • Sigurd: My heart races. This is it!
  • Eivor: Gods, this door. Have you seen this before?

They both stood in front of the large door that Sigurd envisioned.

  • Eivor: The space above. The Saga Stone sat there, did it not?
  • Sigurd: Long, long ago, yes. Now stand clear. zrhwachày nàgkwat nsmæ br trrhwndi kwardæ, I sorhwlàs vras chnàkodi de, nsm huchràs réyzdéràæ chaz zàwomsi. (When the destruction and death threatens before us, and the solar flare is reaching, to the calculator of futures we run)

The large door immediately opened.

  • Eivor: How did you do this? Where did you learn these words?
  • Sigurd: I told you, Eivor. My visions are memories. Of a life once lived. Come.
  • Eivor: Gods! What is this place?

Eivor and Sigurd walked to a geo-plate, made of Isu technology.

  • Sigurd: Over here, this plate will lead us onward.

Both siblings stood on the plate.

  • Sigurd: Hoærhàsi.

The plate started to lower gradually.

  • Eivor: Sigurd, I ... I don't know what to say. This is all so strange.
  • Sigurd: Trust this place, Eivor. This old and sacred place.
  • Eivor: Where does it lead?
  • Sigurd: To the hall of the slain and the golden fields. To Valhalla.
  • Eivor: This vessel. Was it crafted by dwarves?
  • Sigurd: It is finely made, that much is true. I doubt Gunnar could hammer a piece any finer.
  • Eivor: And this cavern ... so deep, and humming with magic.

As the plate lowered, Eivor and Sigurd saw a glowing tree.

  • Sigurd: There! The old tree! The tree of life!
  • Eivor: What is this...?
  • Sigurd: See how proudly she sits. How beautiful she gleams. Here, all the roots of life run together.
  • Eivor: The skalds would cry to behold such a sight.
  • Sigurd: And there's more to come. I swear by all the names of the All-Father, this is only a taste of what I have in store for you. For my visions go further. To Odin's great hall.

They walked towards the enormous tree.

  • Sigurd: There! Do you feel that? The sacred energies?
  • Eivor: I have never seen something so grand.
  • Sigurd: This shrine is ours. It will open for us. Watch and see for yourself.
  • Eivor: How do you know these things? Was all this in your vision?
  • Sigurd: All this and more.

Both warriors stopped at a sphere of metal under the tree.

  • Sigurd: Yes, it is returning to me now. This ancient shrine is set alight by this sphere of metal. And these shining arms, these branches. They will grant us access to the refuge of the Gods. To Valhalla. Are you ready?

As they talked, one of the branches held Valka's mother, Svala.

  • Eivor: Sigurd, take great care. We should not tinker with the tools of the gods.
  • Sigurd: You speak for yourself, Eivor. For I am no mortal. I see that now. I know it. Take your place at the center there, and you will see.

  • Eivor: What lies beyond all this? Where does this lead?
  • Sigurd: Take your place at the center there, and you will see.

  • Eivor walked to the central platform as Sigurd was taken by one of the branches.

    • Eivor: Sigurd...!

    Eivor saw Sigurd unconscious as a branch grew close to her.

    • Eivor: Hail, you givers ... a guest has come.

    A branch came behind Eivor and incapacitated her into unconsciousness. Eivor later awoke in a mysterious bedroom corridor.

    • Eivor: What is this place?

    Eivor walked out and saw a feast, filled with plenty of food and the Einherjar warriors having a good time all around.

    • Norse Warrior 1: There you are!
    • Norse Warrior 2: Hail, drengr! Welcome!
    • Norse Warrior 3: The Havi returns to leave us to victory.

    Eivor kept walking forward while receiving compliments and salutations.

    • Norse Warrior 4: Lead us to glory, Havi.
    • Norse Warrior 5: We are proud to serve you, Havi!
    • Norse Warrior 6: Whet my lips with another horn of mead, Brother!
    • Norse Warrior 7: Drink for strength! Fight for glory!
    • Norse Warrior 8: Yesterday is gone, tomorrow never comes!

    Eivor saw both Sigurd and Svala having a conversation and stopped moving.

    • Svala: Eivor. Tyr said you would come. Welcome.
    • Eivor: Are you ... are you Valka's mother? Svala?
    • Svala: You have a keen eye, Wolf-Kissed.
    • Sigurd: After all this time, Eivor! We have arrived! Now raise a horn with Freyja here and sing a victory song!
    • Eivor: Sigurd, what is all this? Your arm has returned ... and your vigor as well.

    Eivor and Sigurd embraced each other.

    • Sigurd: Glory eternal, Eivor! Here we dine in the great hall of the slain. At long last! O, I want to scream with joy!
    • Eivor: This is ... this is all so beautiful.

    Both looked at their fellow Vikings having a good time.

    • Eivor: Your visions were ... they were real.

    A battle horn was blown and a grand door opened.

    • Norse Warrior 9: The battle horn blows! Come, Tyr!
    • Norse Warrior 10: To the field! Fight with us!

    Sigurd rushed to battle as Eivor listened to Svala.

    • Svala: Go, Eivor. Enjoy the fight. You have earned your place here.

    Eivor nodded and left to join the fight as soldiers chanted Eivor's name. Eivor started to fight any enemy she could find.

    • Eivor: The strength I have!

    All warriors kept on fighting.

    • Norse Warrior 11: All hail the endless battle!
    • Eivor: Ha! (howl)
    • Norse Warrior 12: For Odin!
    • Sigurd: Fight me!

    Eivor saw Sigurd on a cliff.

    • Eivor: Look at me, Sigurd!
    • Sigurd: Don't be a coward, Eivor! Come fight me! Eivor! Over here!

    Eivor spoke with Sigurd.

    • Eivor: Sigurd, this place is incredible.
    • Sigurd: Enough with those sword-flies. You and I must fight.
    • Eivor: The battle we never had.
    • Sigurd: And hold nothing back. For here we need not fear a thing.

    Eivor and Sigurd fought each other.

    • Sigurd: Spill the eternal blood of Valhalla.
    • Eivor: At last, I share the din of infinite battle with a true... Troll-arse.
    • Sigurd: You will taste a meal of iron before the day is out! Come on, Wolf-Kissed! Let me cut you a new scar!

    Eivor defeated Sigurd and cut his right arm off.

    • Eivor: Brother!
    • Sigurd: Worry not, Eivor! For we earn no scars here. Only battle wisdom.

    The battle horn was blown again.

    • Sigurd: The day is done!

    Everything changed and Eivor awoke again from the same bed.

    • Eivor: What just happened?

    Eivor walked out again, hearing the same comments from the last time. Eivor found and spoke with Sigurd.

    • Eivor: Sigurd ... your arm has grown back.
    • Sigurd: It was never gone, Eivor. Not truly. Nothing is permanent here, I told you. Nothing save the courage and the reputation of its warriors.
    • Eivor: Are we immortal in this place?
    • Sigurd: Let us discover that together!

    The grand door opened once again as Eivor joined the fight and heard the same war cries from the other warriors again. Eivor found Sigurd sitting mid-battle and he lost his right arm again.

    • Sigurd: Ha! Bit to the marrow's bed!
    • Eivor: Again you've lost your arm.
    • Sigurd: And again it will return!

    Eivor noticed one of the warriors, who looked like her late father, Varin.

    • Eivor: Father .... Is that you?

    Before any confirmation, Eivor awoke again for the third time.

    • Eivor: That cannot have been my father...

    Eivor walked out to see Svala and Sigurd celebrating near the first big table.

    • Eivor: Skal!

    Svala noticed Eivor awake.

    • Svala: Take your horn. Join the battle cheer.
    • Sigurd: Dearest skald of war and verse, how do you like this frenzy so far?
    • Eivor: It is ... it is quite something.
    • Svala: Raise your horn, Eivor. What stops you?
    • Eivor: My father ... Varin. Have you seen him in this hall?
    • Svala: I have not. Should he be here?
    • Eivor: No, he died a coward. Yet by Odin's eye, I swear I have seen him.
    • Sigurd: Cast aside your cares in Valhalla. Let seeking go, we have earned our joy. The journey is complete!

    Eivor left to search.

    • Eivor: I saw you, Father. Where are you? Show yourself.

    Eivor asked the warriors around her.

    • Eivor: Great warriors, have you seen Varin?
    • Norse Warrior 13: Who?
    • Eivor: Varin. My father.

    Eivor got closer to the same soldier from before.

    • Eivor: Varin? Father?

    Before any talks, the same soldier ran into battle. Eivor followed but lost him, while she spotted a sitting Sigurd again.

    • Eivor: Blast! Where is he?

    Eivor spoke with Sigurd, who lost his arm again.

    • Sigurd: Next time I lose this fucking arm, I'll beat a man to death with it!
    • Eivor: Do you not tire of these injuries?
    • Sigurd: Never!

    Eivor smiled and noticed the soldier. Eivor walked to him.

    • Eivor: Wait...

    The soldier turned around and was not her father. Meanwhile, arrows were shot towards the warriors. Eivor was shot in the left eye with an arrow.

    • Eivor: Ah!

    Eivor pulled the arrow out and then the battle horn was blown again. Eivor woke up again and held a throwing knife in her hands. Sigurd walked in to greet her.

    • Sigurd: Eivor, you have a guest!
    • Eivor: You should have knocked first...
    • Sigurd: Nonsense. I brought you someone. Look!

    A seemingly Varin walked in as well.

    • Varin: My Eivor! There you are! What a warrior you have made of yourself. I am overfilled with pride.
    • Eivor: How did you find your way here?
    • Varin: You remember our great battle? You remember how we fought, side by side, with your mother and Sigurd and our clans united?
    • Eivor: We fought, Father. But you did not. You died a coward.
    • Sigurd: Eivor, enjoy this! Your father has returned.

    Eivor threw the dagger at "Varin's" head and killed him.

    • Sigurd: Have you lost all your love for life?
    • Eivor: That was not my father. That was a lie.
    • Sigurd: That was not a lie, that was my gift to you. I have power here. And I can do as I please. You wished to see your father. I made it happen. As easy as breathing.

    The Varin figure turned to dust.

    • Eivor: By Odin's laws, my father is not allowed in this place. I do not wish to see him where he should not be.
    • Sigurd: Your father died doing what he hoped would save you. He died to protect you. And his clan.
    • Eivor: No, he...
    • Sigurd: This is the end of our road, Eivor. This is Valhalla, the eternal golden field. Now come .... battle beckons!

    Sigurd left for battle as Eivor followed and went to the giant door, where Svala was waiting.

    • Eivor: How is all this possible?

    Eivor spoke with Svala.

    • Eivor: How are the slain brought here?
    • Svala: The Valkyries know this, only them.
    • Eivor: No, that cannot be true. None of this feels right.
    • Svala: Do not despair, Eivor. Look. Your friends are here. Everyone you could ever want is here beside you.

    Svala showed Eivor a group of her Ravensthorpe residents, celebrating at a table.

    • Eivor: No. They are not real.

    The residents turned to dust quickly.

    • Eivor: This place is a lie.
    • Svala: This place can be whatever you wish it to be, Eivor.
    • Eivor: I do not want it. Not like this.
    • Svala: You would resign yourself to an empty death?
    • Eivor: The ecstasy I feel here is an illusion. I'd sooner caw like a Raven than sing a false song.
    • Svala: Illusion or not, here there is no death, no pain, no loss... no betrayal. Not like out there.
    • Eivor: You want this? To live inside a lie?
    • Svala: I am an old woman with a broken body. What life I had left was brief. So I bid farewell to my dear Valka and came here.
    • Eivor: I wish you well, Svala. But this is not for me.

    Eivor left Svala.

    • Eivor: I must find Sigurd.

    Eivor ventured into the fight again and later found Sigurd sitting again.

    • Sigurd: The arm! The arm! Always the fucking arm!
    • Eivor: Sigurd, this is an illusion ... a trick. Leave with me now and return to England. Our people need us.
    • Sigurd: No. I am no one in that world. I am somebody here. Powerful, capable, a god. Here I may live forever. Here I cannot die.

    Eivor used her power and stopped the fighting.

    • Eivor: Cows die, family die, you must die. The only thing that never dies is the reputation of the one who's died. in here, you have no reputation. But out there, it's not too late. Every day the same empty war, the same hollow victory. Spilling blood that tastes of water and smells of grass. You have known real battle, real glory. But this is not it. You know this, I know you do. Brother ... it is time to leave.

    Eivor consoled Sigurd to go and leave the simulation.

    • Sigurd: Am I destined to follow you everywhere? 'Til the end of my life? All right. We go.

    Odin appeared instantly.

    • Odin: No! You stay! I do not give leave to go!

    Eivor fell down to the ground, unconscious immediately. Eivor awoke in a realm simulation, which appeared like Niflheim.

    • Odin: Why leave this place? A glory you fought so hard to find? Walk with me.

    Eivor walked with Odin.

    • Odin: I am humbled to walk with you, Eivor. Your reputation is a song warriors will sing forever.

    Odin showed Eivor a childhood memory scene of her survival of her wolf attack.

    • Odin: You are the Wolf-Kissed one, who lingered at the edge of death, yet fought back.

    Odin showed Eivor a memory of one of her fighting moments.

    • Odin: You spilled the raven-wine of battle to paint whole kingdoms red.

    Odin showcased how Eivor garnered certain alliances and installed kings.

    • Odin: You have killed kings and crowned them as you desired, bowing to none.

    Odin reconfigured the moment Eivor saved Sigurd from Fulke.

    • Odin: You stood tall where your brother stumbled, yet you still came to his aid.

    Odin showcased Eivor over a fallen opponent.

    • Odin: You have felled many great foes in your brief time. You have earned your place here, Eivor. Seize it!

    An rock-formed arch rose from the realm's ground as Eivor spoke with Odin.

    • Eivor: Stand aside! My people need me!
    • Odin: I have given you everything you wanted. Everything you needed!
    • Eivor: You gave me nothing! It was all me!
    • Odin: Yet I cleared your path. I guided your axe!
    • Eivor: You were a fly, buzzing in my ear!
    • Odin: How dare you deny me!

    Odin stood his ground and used his spear to push Eivor away.

    • Odin: Everything you believe in stirs before you! Yet you question all! You question the very gods!

    Odin and Eivor started to fight each other, but Odin remained unscathed.

    If defeated, Eivor lied on the ground before getting back up.
    • Odin: Fight me! Do not diminish yourself!
    • Eivor: Your corpse hall is nothing but a dream!
    • Odin: Nothing but a dream? A dream is as real as anything in this world! Do dreams not inspire? Do dreams not make us fearful? Do they not push men to their greatest glories!
    • Odin: Then I am done with dreaming!

    A light from a large door appeared with Sigurd waiting for Eivor.

    • Sigurd: Eivor! Stand!

    Before Eivor could leave, she is brought back from her axe pulled by Odin's power.

    • Odin: Why do you flee from the truth! Do not flee your destiny!

    Releasing her axe, Eivor ran from Odin as Sigurd was joined by more of Eivor's loved ones.

    • Odin: What are you doing? Take up your axe! Wield it like a true warrior!

    Eivor grabbed hold of Sigurd as Odin kicked her axe toward Eivor.

    • Odin: Take up your axe!

    Odin ran to stop Eivor, but Eivor readied out her assassin's blade and subdued Odin.

    • Odin: (scream)

    Odin used his spear to shake Eivor's aid.

    • Odin: Cowards of cowards!

    A simulation of Hytham and Sigurd helped Eivor up, as other simulated figures, rallied for Eivor.

    • Odin: Beggar's bastard! Stand and face me, you feeble-armed thrall!

    Eivor looked back and saw Odin weakened as distance grew wider between them. Eivor saw the door of light with her late parents, Varin and Rosta, holding their hands out for her. Eivor embraced her lost parents when walking towards them. Odin stood up, picked up the axe, and ran to hold Eivor's hand.

    • Odin: Leave me now and you are nothing! With me you have wisdom! Glory! Power! What more do you need!
    • Eivor: Everything else.

    Odin was then pulled back and disappeared immediately. Eivor left with her loved ones as the door of light closed. Eivor woke from the Yggdrasil tree's branch as it let her go.

    • Eivor: S-Sigurd ... are you ... are you with me? Sigurd?

    Basim revealed himself as he held a knife to Sigurd's throat.

    • Basim: Ah! The hanged one awakes! Feet upon the ground once more!
    • Sigurd: Eivor! Be careful!
    • Eivor: Basim? What is this?
    • Basim: Come closer, Eivor. Let me get a better look at you!
    • Eivor: Leave him be, Basim!
    • Basim: For too long, I stared at the sun! It blinded me to the truth. That it was you. It was you I wanted all along.
    • Eivor: Did you track us here? Like a cowardly fox, concealed in the brush?
    • Basim: You widowed my destiny, Wolf-Kissed! You broke all my hopes!
    • Sigurd: He's mad, Eivor! Silence him.
    • Basim: Come, Eivor! Come save your crippled prince of dead ravens!

    Basim pushed Sigurd down as he walked away.

    • Eivor: Are you hurt?
    • Sigurd: It is nothing, go! Kill that bacraut!

    Eivor ran and confronted to fight Basim.

    • Basim: You must suffer. A thousand times what I suffered.
    • Eivor: What is this about?
    • Basim: My son, Eivor. This is about my son!
    • Eivor: You speak nonsense, Basim!
    • Basim: Forgiveness is impossible.
    • Eivor: We shared so much in England. Fought and bled together.
    • Basim: Dig, Eivor. Into the wellspring of your memory!
    • Eivor: Speak your grievance! Show yourself! I do not wish to fight you.

    After battling some time, Basim gained the upper hand over Eivor.

    • Basim: Show me your neck! Show me! The kiss of the wolf takes my prize! Of course!
    • Eivor: Yah!

    Eivor pushed Basim off her.

    • Basim: Rise!

    They continued fighting.

    • Basim: My son will not have suffered in vain!
    • Eivor: You spout nonsense. Like an alehouse drunk! If you are resigned to this, so be it.

    The plate below them was rising up.

    • Basim: You will not die in peace. You will never see your home or your people again!
    • Eivor: Is that what you wanted?
    • Basim: I want you to suffer!

    Eivor shuffled around as the platform stopped rising.

    • Basim: When I have finished, you will be a sack of blood and shattered bones. And my conscience will be clear.

    Eivor stunned Basim and injured his right forearm.

    • Basim: Ah, damn! Let us make this more interesting. We'll drag Sigurd into the fray!

    Basim released a smoke bomb and escaped to find Sigurd.

    • Eivor: Coward! Face me! Fight me here!

    Eivor started to chase after Basim.

    • Eivor: Be on your guard, Sigurd!
    • Basim: (laugh)
    • Eivor: Sigurd! Be careful! He's coming for you!

    Basim disarmed Sigurd.

    • Sigurd: Oath-breaker! You'll die here!
    • Eivor: This brings me no joy, Justice-Bringer. You were always so kind, but you chose the wrong side.

    Just when Basim was going to swing his sword, Eivor threw a dagger at the same time, stopping Basim.

    • Eivor: I am your prize, Basim. Come.
    • Basim: You are, indeed.

    Sigurd ran towards the metal sphere as Eivor fought with Basim once again.

    • Basim: Will you not die?
    • Eivor: Not here. Not by your hand.
    • Basim: I will leave you here to die! Like a rotting fruit on a dying tree! You died once, you will again! (scream)
    Eivor may have stunned Basim outside the circle.
    • Basim: (scream)
    • Sigurd: Stun him within the circle!

    Eivor stunned Basim within the circle of the Yggdrasil's branches.

    • Eivor: Ah!

    One of the branches started to lower. Basim stabbed Eivor in the stomach and Eivor head-butted Basim in response. Holding Basim by the throat, Eivor held him as the branch took ahold of him.

    • Basim: Ah!
    • Eivor: Sigurd! Stop this thing! Douse its fire!

    Sigurd put his hand on the sphere to hold Basim and screamed.

    • Eivor: Sigurd?

    Sigurd walked to Eivor.

    • Eivor: Does he still live?
    • Sigurd: He does. But in darkness.
    • Eivor: Good. The bastard...

    Eivor, injured, followed Sigurd.

    • Eivor: For how long has Basim been planning this treachery?
    • Sigurd: I dare not guess. Gods! Am I to be hounded by a parade of blood-minded traitors the whole of my life? There is no end to this.
    • Eivor: You have something you want to say? Then say it.
    • Sigurd: I ... I need some time to breathe. Let me sit a moment.

    Eivor sat down next to Sigurd.

    • Sigurd: That man's anger. His rage. It had a familiar sting that I ... I cannot place.
    • Eivor: He was raving, Sigurd. Without sense or reason. Pay it no mind.
    • Sigurd: I am not mad, Eivor. These things I see and feel ... I know they are true.
    • Eivor: I know, Brother. Now more than ever. You always spoke true. We should cast our eyes towards home. It's a long journey and I am ... not well.
    • Eivor: Home. Eivor. On our journey here, I had much time to think. On the ecstasies and agonies of our friendship.

    • Sigurd: I cannot return to England with you. That is not my home ... not now.
    • Eivor: What are you saying?

  • Sigurd: I am not the man I was. My time as the jarl of our clan has run short. You must lead us now.
  • Eivor: Do you mean this?

  • Depending on Eivor's choices throughout her journey, Sigurd explained the reasons behind his decisions.

    • Sigurd: When Dag called you out and challenged you to a duel, you let him die with honor ... in spite of his betrayal.
    • Eivor: He did what he felt was right. And I honored that.

  • Sigurd: When Dag called you out, as he felt he must ... you refused him honor, did you not? A cowardly act, one I abhor. Dag acted out of love for this clan. That is not worth the shame you inflicted on his name.
  • Eivor: I saw things differently then.

    • Sigurd: I know about you and Randvi. A lover's tryst, in spite of me. I should challenge you for such a betrayal, but I'm ... I'm not fit for such a fight.
    • Eivor: I ... I understand. Is that all?

  • Sigurd: Randvi told me of your bravery, your courage, your wisdom. In my absence, you were a pillar of stone. She admires you.
  • Eivor: And I her. But that cannot be the only reason.

    • Sigurd: And my grievances go back further still. You stole my father's riches. In my haste to leave, I should have stopped you then... A true leader would have stopped that thought before it took form. You were selfish.

  • Sigurd: And I remember and admire the way you guided us from Norway to England. You kept my anger in check, my ambitions focused.
  • Eivor: It was a trying time.

    • Sigurd: And when I returned to the settlement, your pattern of disobedience continued. I made a judgment ... and you openly defied me!
    • Eivor: I believed you were wrong then. I still do.

  • Sigurd: And when I passed judgment on Holger, you let my sentence lie, though I knew you disagreed. The look on your face said all.

    • Sigurd: Do you recall the day we stood before Eadwyn, searching for the Saga Stone? You struck Basim, you lashed out at me, you made a fool of us all. That is not a leader I wish to follow into death and glory.
    • Eivor: You were being secretive then. Foolish, I thought.

  • Sigurd: I recalled our days in Oxenefordscire, our search for the Saga Stone. You disagreed with my orders. But you followed them. You questioned my methods, my aims ... but you did not disobey.
  • Eivor nodded and smiled.

    • Sigurd: In all my days away, in my fog of confusion, you have shown great wisdom and strength and leadership. Where you go, Eivor, I will follow. Our Clan is yours to lead.
    • Eivor: Thank you, Brother. I ... I won't let you down.
    • Sigurd: You have a stormy look.
    • Eivor: Years ago, before we left for England, I saw a vision. A vision that foretold of betrayal. That I would betray you. I refused to believe it. I would never do such a thing, I told myself. But in the years since ... I have robbed you of your dreams. Of England, of Valhalla... If you feel I have wronged you, Brother, I will make it right.
    • Sigurd: We cannot unweave our fates, Eivor. All is laid before us, from the days we are born. To be angry at this would be like ... like wrestling the ocean. A pointless struggle.
    • Eivor: We two ragged ravens ... what a saga we have inscribed together.
    • Sigurd: A tale for the ages.
    Eivor and Sigurd left together for Ravensthorpe, their home.

    • Sigurd: This is not a decision I make lightly, Eivor. You are family. You were my drengr. But here our paths must diverge.

    If Sigurd decided to leave, Eivor responded to his choice.

    • Sigurd: Brother, please stay. Your place is with us. In England. Our home is your home. My road forward has been a muddy one, slick with blood and tears. But we can reach its end together. Let us face new foes and greater glories together.

  • Eivor: I understand your anger. I would be too if I had suffered these insults. But there is no need to abandon what you have worked so hard to achieve. Return with me, and show me how best to lead.
  • Sigurd: England is too infected with ugly memories. I will stay here, in the land that gave me life and strength.
  • Eivor: Just as the prophecy warned me.
  • Sigurd: Prophecy?
  • Eivor: Years ago, before we left England, I had a vision. A prophecy that I would ... that foretold the course of my life, up to this moment.
  • Sigurd: You never told me this. And has your prophecy come to pass?
  • Eivor: I ... I do not know. I think it has ... but not because I chased it.
  • Sigurd: Well ... I hope for your sake, that you grow well into the role you have earned today. That hope is all I have left.
  • Sigurd: I will try. I promise.
  • Eivor and Sigurd parted ways.

    • Eivor: Fate has drawn you here, Brother. Back home. Where you belong. Have no worry for what you leave behind.
    • Sigurd: England is too infected with ugly memories. I will stay here, in the land that gave me life and strength.
    • Eivor: Just as the prophecy warned me.
    • Sigurd: Prophecy?
    • Eivor: Years ago, before we left England, I had a vision. A prophecy that I would ... that foretold the course of my life, up to this moment.
    • Sigurd: You never told me this. And has your prophecy come to pass?

    • Sigurd: Well ... I hope for your sake, that you grow well into the role you have earned today. That hope is all I have left.
    • Sigurd: I will try. I promise.
    Eivor and Sigurd parted ways.

    If Eivor pleaded for Sigurd to stay in England, Sigurd responded to her. In fact, Sigurd took into consideration how many times Eivor went against him.

    • Sigurd: Since my captivity, I felt you were cold and distant. But here your words glow with heart-fire and kindness. All right ... all right ... I will come. But only if I may counsel you from time to time, to be better than you are.
    • Eivor: I expect nothing less.
    • Sigurd: You have a stormy look.
    • Eivor: Years ago, before we left for England, I saw a vision. A vision that foretold of betrayal. That I would betray you. I refused to believe it. I would never do such a thing, I told myself. But in the years since ... I have robbed you of your dreams. Of England, of Valhalla... If you feel I have wronged you, Brother, I will make it right.

    • Eivor: We two ragged ravens ... what a saga we have inscribed together.

    Eivor and Sigurd left together for Ravensthorpe, their home.

    • Sigurd: England is too infected with ugly memories. I will stay here, in the land that gave me life and strength.
    • Eivor: Just as the prophecy warned me.

    Eivor and Sigurd parted ways.

    Outcome
