 ===== Persona ===== ===== Persona =====
 +Kráku-hallr Gunnarsson is a Hiberno-Norseman,​ born in late 9th century on a large steading near the bay in Katanes, on the northeast tip of Alba (specifically the village of Wick, in Caithness, modern-day Scotland).
  
-Kráku-hallr Gunnarsson. ​ Born late 9th century on a large steading near the bay in Katanes, on the northeast tip of Alba.* +He is the first of his family to be born on these lands. ​His father, Gunnar Snorrisson, hailed from the village of Skogn on the southern shore of the Trondheimsfjorden,​ some ways in from the central coast of Norway. Father was a styrsman and sea trader, and later served as steading headman. He named his son Jakkob, but since he has loved the birds since my youth, he soon became known as ‘Crow-Caller’. His mother Maighread, was a local girl, born of a Scotti father and a mother who descended from the painted people. She often called Kraku-hallr by his Gaelic name, Seamus.

He named me Jakkob, but since I have loved our birds since my youth, I soon became known as ‘Crow-Caller’. +In his youth Seamus took to the sea, trading with relatives in Norway and Iceland. ​He may have joined in a raid or two at some point, but that was long ago. He is nearing sixty years now, and lives quietly on the family steading with his wife, three grown children and, so far, four strong grandchildren. Seamus loves the land and what is does for them in turn. He does passable work with leather, repairing shoes, making harness and such
