As one of Thorgest's soldiers, Hogne served under his king he was tossed from his ship and thought dead as he drifted in the sea. As time passed and after Thorgest died, Hogne stayed at the sea stack of Downpatrick Head and lived there, yearning for a death fit for Valhalla.
Hogne was left alone, cursing the sea god Njörðr for letting him live and burying competitors who failed to defeat him in combat. Along her travels in Ireland, the Viking jarlskona Eivor Varinsdottir of the Raven Clan discovered Hogne tending to his land as Hogne noticed her presence. Eivor spoke with Hogne, who stated his current situation and asked her to send him off to Valhalla. Eivor accepted the challenge, and she and Hogne battled for an honorable death. Though Hogne wielded both a sickle sword and a dagger, Eivor proved victorious, and Hogne thanked Eivor for her part in his honorable death. After Hogne succumbed to his wounds, Eivor sent him to Valhalla and retrieved the Dublin Champion Breeches from his personal effects.
- Depending on who Eivor battled first, Hogne may reveal Thorgest's resting place or the existence of his fellow warrior, Blud the Giant.
