The word Wyrd means fate in old norse, a concept as old as humanity itself. The weaving of the Wyrd is made by the Norns, a trio of wise women who lived on the base of Yggdrasil. They shaped fate of all Vikings by weaving their destinies into threads, which they cut at the end of the being’s life.
The strong belief in Wyrd, or fate, is the source of the terrifying bravery of the viking warrior, and all things – even the gods themselves – are bound to their Wyrd. Since it is impossible to escape fate, true valor rests on meeting it head on, with courage and honor. It is not how long or short is the time given to us, but how we use it.
